Whackdoodle. The prefix "Whacka" modifies the root "loon."

My word verification is "Dessess." I had another good one the other day that made me thing there was something to the Infinite Monkey Theorem after all.

I like the rhythmic balance of whackadoodle.

fyi: wf is ratist this time. I know you may be tracking these things.

"Ratist" sounds like some weird political party or fetish. Maybe a religious belief in the divinity of Templeton the rat from Charlotte's Web.

Hi,

Found your blog via Mustang Bobby's and thought I would take a look. I appreciate the chuckles I have received from couple of your posts.

And I just like the sound of wackAdoodle better.

LeftLeaningLady,

Welcome. Please let me take your coat. Can I get you something to drink? The others are in the living room, and there are some snacks on the coffee table.

I like Whack a Doodle it's like whack a mole right?

Oh and my captcha is Reerries not Reer a ries which would only by if Scooby were saying it.

I need to go to bed now.
