HAIKUGAR – Wednesday’s Wordapod

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

Look for “Haikugar(s)” in Wordapodia, Volume One: An Encyclopedia of Real Fake Words, where you will find over 250 other creative, fun Wordapods.

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

The New Legend of PUNK-sutawney Phil

Did you ever see the movie Groundhog Day…Groundhog Day…Groundhog Day?

1994. Bill Murray. Andie MacDowell, Haven’t seen her in a long time, which may be good as in my memory, she is still looking very good, and also not too bad of an actress.

…and a PEEVISH Friday to you, too

Do you remember your high school yearbook questionnaire? I remember a lot of the questions on mine, including being asked about best moments, most embarrassing moments, my last will and testament (high school-wise, or something to that effect) and my pet peeve(s).

Two Book Crossover 11.13

 

I don’t recall what my pet peeves were, but I do remember memorializing a least favorite teacher in my last will and testament, willing her a mask, a personality and a teacher’s guide. Yes, I was persuaded to change it; I really wasn’t a mean kid. As to my pet peeve? Not only do I not remember it, but I can’t even find my yearbook to look it up, and to try to remember who some of my new Facebook friends and acquaintances were. Now, that’s a relatively new pet peeve – not that I needed any additional ones.

Friday Evening Quarterback

In about 48 hours from now, nearly all of us will be watching Super Bowl XLVIII in our various stages of interest and sobriety. I’ll be sober, watching the game with a passion (although I don’t have a huge rooting interest this year) and just kind of hanging with my wife and five-and-a-half-year-old boy. Hint: If I get bored or have to answer too many annoying questions, I may need a hook-up.
