What the heck is The Flunktionary?
What the heck is a word? A word's a word that somebody thinks up that means something. Some of them make it into the dictionary, and some of them don't. Flunktionary.com is for those that don't. Help us make the flunktionary bigger than the real dictionary by becoming an Official Flunktionary Scholar.
Gee professor, can't I just string together any random bunch of letters, call it a word, and get it in the Flunktionary?
You can string together whatever you want, it's a free country. But in order to appear in the Flunktionary your word, as judged by our distinguished panel of judgels, must:
1) Have a hint of meaning to it. The definition has to make some sort of sense and make people laugh and think, hmmm, is that really a word? I never thought of that.
2) Be funny. If you have a serious word that is truly needed by society to describe a person, place, thing, or action then submit it to the real dictionary people, The 1st, 3rd, and 4th letters of Flunktionary don't spell FUN for nothing.
Ok, I get it, so what type of words are you looking for?
Anything that's funny and has a funny definition, rated PG-13, and is a word or a synonym for another word or phrase. If you're ready, submit your word here.
Finally...will I get smarter by reading the Flunktionary?
No you will not. In fact you might even get dumber. That's the price you pay for using the internet. You may however, and there are no guarantees, develop an interest in words in general. If that happens, don't blame us.
