A yumbo is the name I invented, as an alternative to descriptions such as 'babe', 'hunk', 'sheila', 'bit', 'barewa', 'uro' etc.
Basically, an alternative word to describe a physically attractive person. I use it as a unique term, and as a means of being discreet at close quarters.
It is derived from other earlier unique terms; I use it for my email id, and as a nickname on irc chat. Not because I claim to be a yumbo, but I have the privilege of inventing its use.
Addendum: Yumbo = me; yumbo = as above.
You'll be surprised to learn that it has a few other uses, and you can see it for yourself by going to a search engine, such as Yahoo, and typing in yumbo. From there, go for it!
What is a wootie?
A wootie, is a word you may have seen me write in my email, or in chat - and of course mystifies yoo! lol.
Well, to demystify, here is its defintion by inception:
We all try to be witty on the net, to impress others, or it is just instinctive. Obviously, it is sometimes hard to come by, and we scratch our heads (some of us, prolly by instinct as well). So, if we scratch hard enough, or if we're just too good, our jumper-jack cooties come out as WOOTIES!!!!!!!
To put it simply:
A witty remark that comes from our scratched cranium, where cooties sometimes reside; a witty cootie, is a WOOTIE!
Smiles, and thar yoo go - another yumbo word to add to your internationally understanding vocabulary!
Here are some quick dic-defying defs. a la Yumbo...
- Abberations - unnatural (eish-provoking) platform shoes females tend to wear as part of fashion, or a vain attempt to disguise their natural height; even worse when tall women wear them - makes them taller than me, ack!
- Pooftah - traditionally a British-based reference to gay/effeminate men; my alternative to wusses (scaredy-cats; of the weak nature) - includes females.
- Kissmeosis - the state of not being kissed in a long time. Symptoms include not being able to remember what it feels like. Not to be confused with Kissmeitis (one Mr. Boombastic always seems to suffer from).
- Kissmeitis - as opposed to Kissmeosis - the state of kissing too much; symptoms include mashed lips, lack of nerve sensitivity, girls always calling up and having your flatmate answer, a constant 'evil' grin, and unabated winking.
- Pashmonger - Person who engages in passionate kissing in public, especially at Yumbo's workplace, when it is quiet, and pretty obvious to others, and he/she is a teenager. Of course Yumbo would be making wooties about the pashmonger!
- yummy-mummy - don't ask!!!
- Zoodles! - an alternative farewell, rhyming with toodles, yet incorporating the alphabetical base of Zimmerism.....Z this, and Z that! Secondly, a noun for Zimmer fans, and makes me think of noodles (which I like to eat), lololol.
- lol - a natural progression to list a def. for those uninitiated into the world of IRC chat - traditionally expanded as, 'laughing out loud'; alternatively known as 'lots of laughs'; and yummily taken as 'lots of love' (you should be able to discern the usage!).
- Paradog - a paradoxical wootie that involves a dog. Example proceeding...
- What do people do that dogs don't? - while people 'wine and dine', dogs 'whine and climb!' ...lol. (Applies especially when you have a new pup.)
- Where did 'Hush Puppie' emanate from? - pups love shoes (to chew), and never stop whining. Enough to make you yell incessantly, "Hush....puppie!" lol. (ask anyone who's had a pup.)
- Smelloricious - smells delicious... otherwise - smells atrocious.
- Zimmerite - the formal name for a Zimmer fan.
- Zimmerist - a composer who uses Zimmer's style.
- Zympho-maniac - a Zimmer fanatic.
