Historical. I kind of paper wrapper for an email. Many aeons ago the primitive people of the time sent their emails in these so called envelopes. This was before wire never mind wireless and so they used human mules to transport the emails from person to person. Strangely, although the system was excruciatingly slow it was not free!! The human mules - known as emailmen - were not paid directly, instead the sender glued a little picture onto the so called envelope and this seemed to make the mules happy. The mules were given coloured elastic bands and they'd scatter these all over peoples' paths and driveways. History does not record why they did this but it is thought it is similar to a cat marking its territory.

SMARTPHONE:  A telephonic device which, sadly, is often far more capable and intelligent than its owner, and as such should be eschewed by all right-thinking people.  Hugely popular amongst fashion conscious idiots whom, totally failing to realise it is attempting to make up for their mental shortcomings, will replace it as soon as there is a new model available with a better colour, more hand-friendly textures or profile, or a 'vastly improved slimmer build profile'.

A servant whose primary job is to polish the arse of the master. The position all but disappeared in the late 19th century when shiny arses fell from favour. However, there has been a recent resurgence as wealthy yet pointless celebrities look for pointless ways of proving their pointlessness. This culminated in a shortage of beeswax on the 23rd of July 2015; a day now known as Dull Arse Thursday.

An extreme sport, similar to 'bobbing for apples', in which blindfolded contestants, with their hands tied behind their backs, have to retrieve one of a number of live cats frantically bobbing in a barrel of water, using only their teeth to capture and lift.

Best played, and encouraged, by drunks.  When down to the final pair of contestants they play simultaneously from opposite sides of the barrel, adding the risk of skull fracture or impact-induced drowning.

Some total nutters will also add a number of live eels to the barrel, often without the players being aware of this.  But purists frown upon this variation as being unnecessarily confusing for the cats.

History has shown however that ignorance has its own luck, armour and inevitability.  The figurehead, once installed often becomes an unstoppable and uncontrollable juggernaut.

The 'Big Brother' contraceptive of the future, fitted with a microchip enabling it to scan the object of your amorous insertion, and to dissuade you if it thinks they are unsuitable.  For example, too young, married to someone else, or the wrong gender.

To facilitate this detection the gay community will have to purchase specifically gay-enabled condoms.  Bisexuals will need to stock up on both types.

Apart from the warning voice a number of small electrical inserts will administer a short but shrivelling shock.

Civil rights campaigners will be furious.  Equal rights campaigners will call the orientation-specific condoms a total negation of all they have worked for.  The number of unplanned pregnancies and cases of sexually transmitted diseases will go through the roof as people just avoid using this modern aid.

But that's progress for you.

It is a little known fact that the Omnipo, an endangered sub-species of the very rare  Icelandic Antelope, both weaves and carries around its own canvas shelter.  This is made from the recycled cotton clothing of hikers who have either died, or woken up to find their spare clothing stolen from the line outside their own invariably modern nylon tents.

The Omnipo, being an evolutionary dead end, is unable to process modern materials and the canvas shelters become increasingly dilapidated over the years, offering less and less protection.  This happens because they process cotton by eating it, digesting it in one of their seven stomach, and then, like a spider, spinning a rough but usable yarn from their bum.  Yes, that's right, a long string of shite.  Rather like the nonsense you have just read.

The historical name for a gallows where obnoxiously pedantic people were strung up by more linguistically relaxed members of the general public.  All large towns had one.

(The etymological connections to Tyburn Tree are obvious, but perhaps this is not the place or time to enlarge thereon.)

Often situated near their local version of Speaker's Corner, both for convenience and to act as a none-too-subtle hint for Smart-Alecs.

Tel Ephone in the Negev desert is the ruins of the ancient city of Ephone, built where two major trading routes once crossed: the road from Tel Sco to Po St Offic, and the road from Boo'Kies to the Buroo.  All that remains of Ephone now are two trunkless legs of stone, and a raven sitting on a pediment.

PEDIMENT
Title: Re: Define a llama!
Post by: RamblingRose on February 03, 2016, 09:49:23 AM
The antonym of 'impediment', a pediment is something which forms no obstruction. In colloquial terms, it refers to a person's characteristic which would normally be an impediment but for reasons unknown seems to serve that person as an advantage; the hairpiece of Donald Trump is an oft-quoted example.

HORTICULTURE
Title: Re: Define a llama!
Post by: Jo Bannister on February 03, 2016, 10:59:06 AM
The music, art, dance and literature of the principality of Horti, squeezed between Spain and Portugal and equally hostile to both.  The citizens of Horti speak a language more closely related to Welsh than Spanish, and pretend not to understand when any of their neighbours stop by for a chat.  The latest expression of Horti culture is the Horti marathon.  Because the country is so small it's difficult to stretch out in bed without infringing someone else's borders, the marathon involves running up and down the town hall steps - five hundred times.

PRECAUTION
Title: Re: Define a llama!
Post by: Artemis Quark on February 03, 2016, 12:11:16 PM
Precaution is the activity taken by the Hortis before reclining in bed. It consists of pulling on padded footwear and a helmet, given the inevitable encroachment of neighboring borders.

PHANTASMAGORIA
Title: Re: Define a llama!
Post by: RamblingRose on February 03, 2016, 12:48:15 PM
What the Spanish and Portuguese call a breach of their borders by Horti heads and feet whilst asleep. It is generally pretended that no border infringement occurred, and the heads and feet protruding into the wrong territory do not exist. During the Phantom Wars, Spain eventually ended hostilities by prosecuting each border offence, resulting in the entire Horti population being kept awake for three nights straight.

KETTLE
Title: Re: Define a llama!
Post by: Artemis Quark on February 03, 2016, 01:02:20 PM
Grazing animals that range across the Spanish-Portuguese borders. The local Horti dialect and accent makes the spoken name sound like a large pot for simmering beef chile. Oh,...wait,...that's a country in South America. Of course, the Hortis have distant relatives that migrated there one hundred years ago.  ::)

MITIGATION
Title: Re: Define a llama!
Post by: Jo Bannister on February 03, 2016, 02:19:23 PM
A kind of legal device by means of which it is tacitly agreed that a Horti foot straying into Spain during the night may be overlooked as long as it has been adequately washed since its last attempt at the Horti marathon .  Since the Horti are generally keener on culture than soap, this is by no means a given.

ADEQUATE
Title: Re: Define a llama!

The appropriate response to a Horti greeting.  As previously explained, the neighbours cannot use their own languages because the Horti pretend not to understand them.  "Aloha" is pidgin English for "Hello, Horti."

PIDGIN
Title: Re: Define a llama!
Post by: Spell Chick on February 03, 2016, 03:51:25 PM
In England, a dram of gin. It is the favorite drink of the entire Horti nation, but in Chile, the ex-pat Horti refer to the drink as something entirely different. But since no one but the Horti speak their language, it is unknown what that designation might be.



TRANSLATION
Title: Re: Define a llama!
Post by: Artemis Quark on February 03, 2016, 06:41:44 PM
A non-existent word in the Horti language since no-one outside the Horti culture speaks Horti and the Horti only speak Horti, therefore they only speak to one another. No translation required. Is this clear? If not, don't ask a Horti unless you are of Horti lineage, in which case, you can't read this anyway.  ::)

The farmer looked at him.  He looked at the potatoes growing in his field.  He looked at the ad-man again, but he really didn't seem to be joking.  So he answered as honestly as he could.

It's not now widely remembered that Napoleon Bonaparte was bilingual.  In fact, his habit of using words of both French and English in the same sentence caused his general staff considerable difficulties.  A case in point is when, early in his rise to fame, a mob was beating at the doors of his headquarters, and his aide de camp asked whether his guards should open fire.

"Fire on my beloved people?" snarled Napoleon.  "Intolerable!"

But the confused aide thought he'd said, "Into le rabble!" and instructed the sergeant of the guard accordingly. 

How different history might have been if the emperor had stuck with his native language.

SCANDAL
Title: Re: Define a llama!
Post by: Gyppo on March 03, 2016, 04:58:47 AM
A sandal with a built in scanning device (usually wortn in pairs to provide real-time backup.  These are very popular with burglars who wear them to 'case the joint' in daylight whilst appearing to be innocent passers by.

Then, under cover of darkness or fog they can return, allowing the hi-tech scandals to direct their footsteps along the predetermined safe route, avoiding pressure mats, passive IR detectors, etc.

The downside of this useful technology, from a crook's point of view, is that if either scandal is lost during the course of the robbery, and found by the police, a skilled 'blue hat hacker' can usually recover all the old data and back-track the culprit to his abode.

So if you see a man in a crumpled and ill-fitting blue suit, with an earpiece attached to a grubby looking sandal, chanting a litany of "thee paces, turn left ninety-four degrees, walk forward twelve paces, climb fence..." then you can rest assured he isn't necessarily a 'care in the community case'.

An interesting historical footnote lies behind this.  During the English Civil War the besieged Royalist forces in Winchester ran out of cannonballs, whilst still having sufficient gunpowder and alcohol to come up with an unholy idea.  Having also exhausted their supply of stones, nails, and broken bottles to use as impromptu shot they then castrated themselves and used their testicles as improvised ammunition, deeming this to be the supreme and final insult.

They may as well has fired the feathers from their hats.  Cromwell's men, totally unaware of the nature of these shrivelled black objects, didn't feel at all insulted and captured the city anyway.

GUMPTION

Something said to be lacking in those who are gormless.  Gumption and gorm are therefore, presumably, derived from the same etymological root.  Needless to say etymologists are so busy explaining they aren't insect experts that they have no time to pursue the finer derivations of gorm and gumption, so the link remains tantalisingly obscure.

One of those annoying English words that is not spelled as it is pronounced. If it were spelled properly ("seg-way"), its meaning would be apparent: it is a path or lane intended solely for use by segs. Segs have suffered a lot of discrimination in the past, particularly in the arena of passageways, so it is important that this form of affirmative action for segs is embraced.

A canindroid, or dog-shaped robot.  When properly programmed it will eat, shit, fart, leave hairs everywhere and push you out of your own bed.  It will hide behind the sofa at the first sign of an intruder, but bark wildly at members of your family and regular visitors.  It will beg you to throw a ball, but not watch to see where it lands; while you are retrieving the ball, the canindroid will lose interest and start digging up your azaleas.  Every ten to fifteen years it will succumb to built-in obsolescence and stop.  This will cause you an inexplicable amount of distress.

Another of those inventions that never quite caught on.  Goggles that could indeed help you see through fog would be extremely useful.  Unfortunately, foggles only introduced another layer of material for the light, already in short supply, to penetrate and actually made it harder to see in poor conditions.  The inventor was sadly run down by a hansom cab before he could make improvements.
