I have a new favourite word.

It's the bestest word EVAH!

It showed up as a word verification on Ricë's blog.


WOOMPATA


It is the most perfect word for a boring day at the office. I should print it out in a huge font and plaster it all over the office. Woompata !!!!


Now I just have to decide what it means. Any suggestions?

It could be: "North American ape-like man, with no chin, fat, bold and with bad temper." A bit like Kwyjibo...

My idea: a trivial event in a day that changes one's mood radically.

A love pat, but bigger.

It's the Oompa Loompa's version of Woo hoo!

It kind of reminds me of "To Wanda!" Maybe a proclamation that anything goes.

word verification: halminfe, which sounds like something I might own.

If you mess with me I will lay some woompata on your ass!

it's a foreign derivative of the slang "whompass"

choochoo said...

Oh, I know what that means. It what you say when you've one-up'ed someone inferior. It's like that mature, intellectual way of shouting "BURN!". We don't shout "BURN!" because we're theoretically mature and this isn't the 70s show.

You need Harry Potter's wand to make it work, but if you say it three times out loud, it transports you to a five star hotel where room service is free, a masseuse is obligatory, and the telly has 109 INTERESTING channels - whilst simuntaniously leaving your office behind in a ball of flame..

(But it returns everything to normal in 24hrs)

it's how unborn babies say "who's your daddy?"

Woompata is a visceral reaction in your womanly areas to something particularly fiiiiine. e.g.: "When I saw the new pool boy hosing himself down, it gave me some serious woompata."

It's the sound made when you achieve liftoff, and come back down on your seat, after eating 3 chili dogs, a bowl of baked beans, some corned beef & cabbage, and a handful of radishes.

Also the best word ever for playing the name game.

Woompata woompata boompata banana fana foompata me mi mo mata, woompata!

Clearly, it's Finnish.

As I am of Finnish extraction, I can tell you it's what occurs when a pregnant woman feels the fetus inside of her move for the first time.

The other suggestions are all excellent. The only thing I have to contribute is that it sounds a bit like an alternate name for one's vulva.

mrwriteon said...

She had the nicest set of Woompatas that I've ever seen.

Woompata is that level of fucked-up-ness that only the likes of 2girls1cup, goatse.cx, tubgirl and the Japanese have managed to achieve.

Its Japanese for "really really disgustingly fucked-up, I'm gonna hurl."
