      The jollux’s delicate in their ludibrous brabble- frecking and kenching, in a furious, almost sanguinolent, jargogle……….
      although i think I may have made jargogle a noun- Perhaps if someone made the jollux’s jargogle?

    • Ohhello

      ^ You must be fun at parties Picky

    • Picky

      Sorry Heather, good try, but you used kench and brabble as nouns and jargogle as an adjective. Kench, brabble and jargogle are verbs.

      • Why so nit-picky?

        Kench and brabble can easily be nouns in this sentence.

      Although jollux, the man was able to freck through the crowd all the while holding back his kench as he deliciated over the ludibrious brabble that had just occured concerning the jargogling word “sanguinolency”.
