That's ridiculous, if a sea cucumber is threatened it will simply hide in a sea salad until it is safe to come out.


bOB.. a cucumber hiding in a salad is safe?:biggrin:

seamom.. I guessed the lightening bugs first only because I am in America:biggrin: but in England it would be the glowworm.

I have a story about that..:whistle: one day my Uncle and Aunt said we were going for a picnic on Dartmoor, I thought it strange to be setting out late in the day, but off we went and parked in a small protected nook. Out came the picnic stuff, while I roamed the moors. It started to get dark and I asked why we were staying. They said they had something to show me.
Darkness fell and suddenly there are these magical lights in the long grasses nearby.
I was thrilled. We got the torch and used it to track down these mysterious givers of light. There were these little plain looking worms on the grass stems.
I never knew we had anything like that in England, and I never saw them again! Needless to say.. this sparked my interest in them and the whys and wherefores.

\so OK.. where are we?

Barratry


Well, I am thinking "Barrister" so perhaps the one to do with lawsuits?

and bOB.. are you sure this is not a word that you invented? I seem to remember when we were in Mexico.. you saying... "Lets give that bar a try?
:biggrin:

2. Negligence of a ship's captain or crew causing loss to the owners is my guess for Barratry! ...it's a cruise board after all!

Funnel!!!! You made me laugh so much thinking of using these crazy words in every day conversation with that poor Scot! He'll be thinking he has a whole new language to learn! lol
The Scottish accent is very difficult for us Swedes to understand (almost like Chinese :whistle:) so I will enjoy every minute of conversation with him using these words! :biggrin:

and bOB.. are you sure this is not a word that you invented? I seem to remember when we were in Mexico.. you saying... "Lets give that bar a try?:biggrin:
Then it has to be no 4 "The name of Hooked's new bar on an outward Bahamian island"... :scratch:
...but I think this is no 2.

WEll....I think this was too easy for all of you......BUT a couple of you are trying to make it very hard for me after a long day's work... I'm getting dizzy AND confused!!! boB and RED behave yourselves!!!

Barratry

2. Negligence of a ship's captain or crew causing loss to the owners

So by my calculations, FUNNEL, TOBYN, BERYL....you each get a point...boB gets to read the instructions over again sitting in a corner and has a gold engraved invitation to join us again later, and RED...well....for the points I just minused, you get to keep them for the nostalgia you shared about glowworms and add one because I think you guessed correctly but with a warning to use the number or wording of the definition and I'm giving you a yellow card (ask Einstein what that is) means :p)

Now...the new BALDERDASH!

Jerquer

1. A customs officer who searches ships

2. The individual who prepares the meat and wears the chef's hat in Jamaica! Jerk Chicken

3. One who pulls tether lines into the ship when leaving the dock

4. The act of behaving like a fool

Hmmm...these all seem appropo after the last debacle....ship oriented and a bit of foolery. Good going to those who sent definitions!! Too bad no one else has accepted the challenge!!

New word tomorrow morning, be there or be square!

Fantastic, I have 2 points!


The next one (Jerquer) has to be me, which means no 4 (the act of behaving like a fool)! :biggrin:

yes seamom.. sorry for not saying anything more than "Legal":bang: I will not do it again.. I promise..

bOB.. do we have a gif of me crossing my fingers behind my back that I can use ?

and this is just Balderdash... a nice English word for someone being foolish, or acting foolishly, . now what was that number?
scrolling down to see.

#4

hummm that was not what you were looking for?

scrolling down again.

"Jerquer" I agree with bOB. unless he is pulling in lines on a ship.
and in which case..
Oh heck.. I have to scroll down again to look for the number.


I will "customize this a bit.

whistleFunnel, sorry this time, but you must be an honest one when you go on the ship and knowing these characters you are playing with, they have all met the jerquer when they've smuggled their champagne and aperitifs onboard! All those who have smuggled liquor onboard, take a point! :whistle:

The next choice you have to make your confessions:

Pleonast

1. An early stage in the life cycle of an embryo

2. A person who uses more words than necessary.

3. Someone that takes the 5th.

4. One who can rhyme off the constellations, best seen at sea.

well.. let me see if I can get this one. perhaps I can if I try.. or maybe I cant.. can I, can't I?
is it

1. An early stage in the life cycle of an embryo no, I do not think so, I am positive it is not.

3. Someone that takes the 5th. of vodka? gin? whiskey? what can this be? but I am not going to choose this one.

4. One who can rhyme off the constellations, best seen at sea. Is it this one? yes? no? maybe? well.. I am leaning towards.. NO


2. A person who uses more words than necessary. what ME? :biggrin: number two will do.... this is my choice.. my final answer.. the end....I sure hope I am right....

Hmmm...pleo or pleio...many as in pleomorphism (more than one form) and nast as in gymnast (one who loves exercise)

so...more than one...Ergo...a person who uses more words than necessary....probably someone who actually loves Language...me, red, seamom

Yup...I go with #2

Oh my...we are getting into thinking about this (not that you have to! a wild guess is good to for any still shy to join us)........did you take Latin, Beryl? In hindsight, wish I had. Would have come in handy.

I have seen many people smuggling liquor onboard, but that was onboard ferries (same rules there about liquor). On the other hand most of them had the liquor internally and not in bottles... :biggrin:

OK, over to the next word, Pleonast.
This has to be no 2 as Red so clearly demonstrated!
We have almost the same word in Swedish so this time I am full of self-confidence! :whistle:
