what is this word "pooshnowb?" You may have heard Sara
and Cliff use this word when talking to one another. Well, the truth
is, it really depends on who you ask! Pooshnowb can have various
meanings, as you can see below -- but it's definitions are virtually
Pooshnowb (POO-sh'NOWB) -adj., n., v.
1. The act of being difficult; argumentative (alt., adj.) "Why
you gotta be such a pooshnowb?"
2. Random body parts: "Did you forget to wash your pooshnowb?"
3. A delightful treat: "Don't eat your pooshnowb!!! You'll
ruin your supper!!"
4. Term of endearment; pet name for spouse or significant other:
"I love my li'l Pooshnowb. Yyyyye-us."
We definitely can't take credit for this word. Words like pooshnowb
were first used by Chad Muncy, brother of Cliff Muncy. At a young
age, Chad expressed an interest in creating his own language. Over
time this language has evolved to include a myriad of words -- "pooshnowb"
being one of them. Cliff and others have taken his lead and are
always looking to create new words with new meanings. As a side
note, Chad now has a son to whom he is teaching this new language.
We look forward to seeing how the other kindergarteners will react
to this behavior.
Pooshnowb has several word cousins including "shnoobowb"
and "shnowboob". These words can be used interchangeably
and even all in the same sentence. For instance, "You need
to wash your pooshnowb, you little shnowboob!"
It has been recently discovered that by adding various endings onto
pooshnowb and its word cousins, one can obtain even a larger number
of definitions. For example, "Would you please wash your shnoobowb,
you little shnoobowbulite! You're going to catch shnoobowbulitus!"
