Defining Moment

Listen, I'm no stranger to rejection in many forms: jobs...love interests...mime school...

But my most recent rejection is a real puzzler. It's from Urban Dictionary. You know, the folks who brought you space docking. (You're welcome.)

Their e-mail to me following my submission is below:
----------------------------------------------------

Thanks for your definition of rewhoresful! (Cheerful! You are so welcome, Urban Dictionary! This is starting out well!)

Editors reviewed your entry and have decided to not publish it. (What? The editors of Urban Dictionary have standards? Urban Dictionary has editors? Are you hiring?)

To get a better idea of what editors publish and reject, sign up as an Urban Dictionary Editor here: http://editor.urbandictionary.com/ (Whee! I can be an editor? I'm so drunk with power right now.)

Urban Dictionary
-----
Which...seriously? This gets published and this gets denied?:

rewhoresful


(Adj.) Capable of devising ways and means to get what one wants in a morally questionable way.

(Ex.) Amber did not have a hotel room reserved when she visited New York City, but she was rewhoresful enough to hook up with Joe so she could stay in his apartment.
If only I was rewhorseful enough to research the first amendment,

"Thank you" is not the term that comes to mind.

Why would... what the... who in their right mind...

Jesus. What is WITH people?!

Sarah Lindahl said...

Maybe you need to be more rewhoresful if you want to get something published on Urban Dictionary.

Jesus--Who do you need to sleep with to get a word in the urban dictionary?!

Straight Guy said...

See, and I skipped over resourceful and went to remorseful...

That being rewhoresful is to be full of regret over skanky behavior.

lacochran - Probably the same people who are members of the mile high club.

Sarah - Who can figure them out? It kind of makes me respect them even more.

Tante - Is this like Who's on First? Because if so...I totally know the answer.

Straight Guy - Interesting. Perhaps I should re-submit with the "remorseful" meaning. Or with umlauts.

Frankly, it makes me think of horses more than whores. Maybe that's just me...

ShutUpandRun said...

I am remorseful that I was rewhoresful when I slept with an Urban Dick editor to get my word accepted. Did I use it right? I love your submission by the way. Screw them unrewhoresfully.

Sarah Lindahl said...

I've been thinking about this all day and I'm kind of upset! Rewhoresful is clever! And everyone is rewhoresful at some point in their life. Nobody is space docking. Nobody. Those "editors" could use a Boston Pancake.

dilettante07 said...

Maybe the word hit a little too close to home for the editwhores?

Brutalism said...

Gorilla Bananas - That says a lot about the horses you know. Or the whores. Not judging. Just making an observation...

SU&R - Thanks for your support, my sister in the struggle.

Sarah - Thanks for your support, too. And for "Boston pancake" (or as I like to call it, "yet another reason to scrub my eyeballs with lye and a wire brush).

Tante - They are traitwhores.

I thought rewhoresful was when you kept using the same prostitute over and over again until your credit was no longer good with the pimp.

Maybe that's just me.

dilettante07 said...

Dude! You added umlauts! That's awesome. We should have a giant Oktoberfest party to celebrate! Hmm.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Seriously, the link that lead to all the words beginning with "sloppy", is insanely hilarious and gross.

I'm not sure what to say... But I love the urban dictionary and I wish rewhoresful was in it.

Maybe they saw you're white and are racist. Urban dictionary, right?

Johnny said...

you're white and THEY are racist... geez
