    Word disassociation

    I have often thought that word association is just about the most boring and pointless online game EVER - although if you know the other players in real life it can be revealing...

    So how about word disassociation? Judging by how good we all are at going off-topic, this should be easy - the word you post must have *no* connection whatsoever to the previous word. If you spot a connection, then do tell...

    I'll start with

    Custard

    Re: Word disassociation

    Silliness is good. Real words are also good.

    Disqualifying ESG's entry, as anything is connected to panties if you're a bloke.

    Disqualifying Jenni's entry on the basis that she found it off the same website as Phil, so the words are obviously connected.

    Disqualifying Tigg's last entry as "Monster" relates to several of the the previously posted words (in terms of length).

    BTW, disqualification doesn't lead to any sanctions, it's just fun disqualifying people anyway

    Door handle

    Can't you tell it's Friday?

    According to the English Oxford Dictionary, mine is the longest real word in the English language (1 letter longer than the better known antidisestablishmentarianism) and yours is the longest made up word. I don't really understand that, surely all words were made up by someone?

    In that case, I'm a little lost, surely we're still on mine? I mean, mine means "judging something to be worthless or trivial", like this game really, so any word that anyone comes up with could be disqualified, but I guess a door handle isn't worthless or trivial, or else how would get into any rooms, but at the same time, its two words, so can it count in this game?

    Am I evaluating this all a little too much? Probably, ok then:

    Yep. But you're doing a *fantastic* job of creating complete anarchy, which is just what we want on a silly Friday afternoon thread

    BTW, I started this game on another website over a year ago - I'm no longer a member of that website, but the thread is still going!
