    wonky dictionary

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by PBrady, Feb 4, 2014.

    This idea is stolen from a BBC radio pogramme called 'I'm sorry I haven't a clue', in which the panelists come up with new definitions for words.

    Points are awarded on the audacity of the punning.

    A couple of examples to get started (I will pinch some of theirs later)

    Pistol: a charge for urinating.
    Handicap: a very convenient hat
