Wordfuse (Sneaking Suspicion Edition)

hoodwinkling (noun): hoodwinked + inkling = that period of time where you think you're being duped but you're not absolutely sure, like when someone says, "Did you know that if you say gullible really slowly it sounds like o...r...a...n...g...e...s?" and even though you're wearing your best skeptical face, inside your little pea-brain you are totally saying it. (Like you are right now.)

The worst part about this . . . it really does sound like oranges in my head. What's wrong with me?

dbs said...

@Sherilin Yup.
@Alistair Yes I did.
@alittlesprite Gotcha.
@DSWS Couldn't help it could you?
@baygirl It worked on me too.
@paul Yes. They. Do. (Me too.) [and this rhymed!]
@LoC It seems no one is impervious to this.
@wendy Me too.
@AC Nice use of a classic Simpsons interjection.
@G I know eh?
@SIAW Hoodwinklinged.
@HomemakerMan I can't explain it. Somehow it does the same thing to me. It was an eleven year old who told me the joke and I couldn't stop myself from saying it and seemingly hearing it too. Power of suggestion maybe?

As a young apprentice, I was once sent to the hardware shop for a tin of tartan paint!?!?

Kev D. said...

I guess that makes me a GULLIBLOGGER.

dbs said...

@Ryan Someone should invent that.
@KevD That is a total beauty of a wordfuse man.
