Webster ain't got nuthin' on This

As many of you may have noticed, whenever I use a word in a comic or as part of my blog that has an obscure definition, I like to provide my readership with a credible source as to the meaning of that word.

One such credible source, is Urban Dictionary.

Now I know what you're thinking. "Just because it has 'dictionary' in title doesn't mean it's credible Dan." Well typically, I would agree with you. After all, thinks that "inflammable" means the same thing as flammable.

in·flam·ma·ble – adjective

1.capable of being set on fire; combustible; flammable.
2.easily aroused or excited, as to passion or anger; irascible: an inflammable disposition.
3.something inflammable.

"Something inflammable." Gee, thanks

Urban Dictionary, on the other hand, is community driven, like Wikipedia. Anytime somebody suggests a definition, users can vote it down or up, therefore validating it before the masses or shaming it to the realm of "inflammable." (NSFW Audio)

Want more proof? Look no further than the definition of "Wheezy" on Urban Dictionary.

I know, right? It's like God himself made those entries.

As a testament to UD's absolute truth - I've decided to illustrate all the definitions therein, beginning of course, with my own moniker. And if I see anything incorrect or missing, I'll just go ahead and add it as I go.

I count this as the third comic that Dan has actually made an appearance in. Although I always enjoyed generic orange haired guy, I like the new more realistic Dan character. plus, he's uh...huge, so that's real hot.

Listen, Johnny. If you want me to make you a life-sized cardboard "Dan" I'll do it. But only because we shared so many Saturday mornings watching TMNT.

I'm not touching this one with a ten foot pole.......

Both you and MM showing excellent work this week. I also feel like some joke should be made off your mom's comment, but I'm not gonna touch it with any sized pole.

Also, do you ever forget she reads this?

D Wheezy said...

Usually when I think of something that is kinda risqué, it occurs to me that she's going to read it. But then I think "Well, she's an adult. She can handle it," as her comment clearly demonstrates.

"Just trying to make my parents proud."

Maybe I'll change the slogan of the blog to that.

ok first your mom says she isnt touching this one with a ten foot pole. and then you say that your mom is an adult she can handle it. this blog is filled with way too many innuendos.

D Wheezy said...

I can't believe I forgot to mention this in the blog, but thanks to Cody for pointing out the definition of Wheezy to me on UD.

All the way from China!
