After a highly scientific method (my son chose a random number), we have a winner for our New Word Contest.
Anonymous poster with the definition:--Hoy--the interjection used when one is punched in the stomach.
You didn't leave me your name so please write me at: firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me your name and address so I can send you a prize.
Everyone's submissions were really good and highly entertaining. I enjoyed reading them.
An honorable mention has to go to my brother who gave me the correct definitions to two out of three of the words within seconds of reading them. He declined to enter the contest though. I admit, I had a little chuckle at the thought of him winning a pretty African cloth. :)
So, are you curious? Do you wanna know the definitions? Ok. Here goes!
(n) 1. A small sloop-rigged coasting ship or transporting passengers or as tender for a larger ship.
(n) 2. A heavy barge used for freight.
(interj). Used to attract attention or drive animals
A plain or notched piece of wood or metal designed to hold parts of a machine or structure in place.
To function as a laser
So, there you have it. Now you have new ammunition for your next Boggle or Scrabble game.
P.S Next contest won't run so long. Please tell me you weren't all bored to death by this....I am still learning about this blogging world. I need to know you'll be back.
