Off-Topic Gang Dictionary

[ Edited ]

                                        dictionary1.png

 

                                       The Community Off-Topic Gang presents its own Dictionary

 

Members of the Community Off-Topic Gang love to play games or post on the Community Off-Topic Gang threads in Off-Topic but sometimes come across a word which they do not know what it means.

 

So The Dormouse has created the Community Off-Topic Dictionary for members of the Community Off-Topic Gang but needs your help.

 

If there is a word and you want to know what it means, post your query here.

If you have the definition of word, then share it with us by posting on here.

 

Remember, this is a Community Off-Topic Gang thread - the maddest threads in the Community - so the definitions can be as hilarous and as mad as you like. 

Some people see things as they are and ask "Why?"; I dream of things that never were and ask "Why not?"...
