SKINCIPAL

Skincipal (n) – the director or headmaster/headmistress of a school that is part of a nudist colony

 

Who Knew…?

You would think that skincipals would be chosen because of their good looks, but that is only partially true. In a 2013 survey conducted by Buff Educators Weekly, both students and teachers of nudist colonies were recently polled to ascertain, “What are the qualities you admire most in a good skincipal?”

 

Below were the qualities mentioned, from most to least important:

  • Solid, but fair, discipline
  • Innovative, with high academic standards
  • Valuing the students’ and teachers’ individuality
  • Lack of body hair (women) and rashes (men)
  • Encouraging team sports
  • Honoring the school’s Formal Friday dress code (generally, bowties for men, and high heels for ladies)
  • Enforcing Zero Flatulence policies

HAIKUGAR – Wednesday’s Wordapod

So, what would you call a woman who is heavily into younger men who recite 17-syllable poetry?

HAIKUGAR

 

Haikugar (n) – a woman who is aggressively into younger men that recite haiku

 

Observation

 

The term cougar is a fairly recent one coined to describe a woman who preys on younger men. This fact has me wondering:

  1. Why a cougar, and not a mountain lion, catamount or puma?
  2. Is this term pejorative for women? If not, then what is the male counterpart called?

Who Knew…?

Lisa Primstuffel started a club in her native Honolulu called Hawaiian Haikugars on the Prowl. As she explains, “I see nothing derisive about the term. We are a group of refined ladies who know what we want—20-something boys, or the right 30-something men, to read us 17-syllable romantic poetry while we wine and dine them. Is there something wrong with that?” 

 

What can be better

Haikugars on the rampage

Oh no, I’m married
