Blog Balderdash definitions...

Okay.. you guys are FUNNY!!! Now it's time to vote on which definition you think is right. =) I'm going to mix them up cuz that's what you do in the real game. =)

For those of you that missed the blog over the weekend, we're playing blog balderdash. I gave the word SKIMMINGTON and everyone posted a crazy definition of what they thought the word meant. I emailed one of them with the correct answer. Soooo.. vote on which definition you think is correct!!! One of them is right and 9 of them are wrong. =)

The definition of SKIMMINGTON is:

-------

#1 The top layer of fluid in a septic tank

#2 In the early 1900's, a carpenter hand-crafted the first ever skimmington, which held various tools, worn around the waist (now known as a toolbelt)

#3 one who drinks skim milk. kind of like a simpleton, but it's a skimmington

#4 a strange punishment for actors where you get to beat them with spoons

#5 a small water bird that lives mostly in the Fla. everglades.

#6 the internal rod of a driveshaft

#7 a device first introduced in the 1980's used to clear the scum and dirt from pools and ponds.

#8 a new dance that i made up

#9 also known as skimhauler, is a rare snake, tyically found in southern regions, that is known for "skimming" the surface of the water, while hunting for its prey

#10 a person who skims that gross stuff off the top of their heated milk

--------

Alright.. it's time to vote!! Even if you didn't play in the first round, go ahead and vote! This is just for fun. =) I'll post the real answer on Wednesday.

Oh, and did you know that Kayla Amiee's dad totally made up the game Balderdash?? He seriously wrote into the company about this game and they turned around and made up the same game under the name Balderdash. Didn't give him credit AT ALL. Unfortunately, this is our LAST game of Balderdash. We have to be respectful of Mr. Kayla Aimee's dad's game idea... or we all need to pitch in and send him royalties!!!

Okay, VOTE AWAY!!!
