The Icktionary Project

Friday, May 24th, 2013

By Larry Smith

I guess I should be flattered that Clorox thinks I’d be good at coming up with diisgusting words for its new Icktionary project, “a wiki for the icky.” My love of word play is obvious; how they knew I had a penchant for the disgusting I’ll never know. (Perhaps someone tipped them off that I have a messy two-year-old boy?). On that note, one of the Icktionary terms I invented is “Mess-o-potamia.”

When a child has made such a disaster of your house that you’re ready for your whole world to collapse under its mess. More of my Icktionary contributions can be found on the site, where you can comment on icky terms you like and share your own.

You can check out more of my made-up messy words (got “droozle” anyone?), leave comments on any of the hundreds of other entries, watch icky videos, and share your own entry at the Icktionary project.

    Very funny project, with great words, phrases, and sentences! And so true! Life really is a messy place much as we try to keep order. Nice to find the humor it it. Yay Clorox! Yay Larry!
