These folks are truly clever.

Thanks, Maha!

I didn't realize they were still composing and performing! Love the cottage industry.

They are so cute. And funny.

'I feel tricky!
And Mavericky!"

Definitely very clever... They need a different mic setup though. Yes, I'm so picky... Shoot me!

Word thing "phagi" I'm sure something could be made of that, but I leave it to you.

"Phagi" is a hybrid verb form: the Latin passive infinitive of the Greek φαγειν (phagein) = "to eat." So it means "to be eaten" of course. Why, what did you have in mind?

[See, you knew you could count on me to come up with something! Teehee.]

Nothing, that's why I depend on you. Of course it's from the Greek, but I would hope it would be more like 'eat me.' Dirty but not upping your dirt meter rating.

'cowde' is the current word...

Susan, I realize I have let the filth factor lag here a bit lately. Of course, "faggy" is what seemed to scream from the comment thread but being the ultimate butch number myself (the peanut gallery will please pick itself up of the floor, thank you) I just could not go there.

I could not pass up the Greek root "phag-," howver (also found in sarcophagus and coprophagy).

"cowde" somehow reminds me of the scene in Henry V where Catherine the princess of France and her lady in waiting Alice discuss the English language. Common English words that sounded somewhat like vulgar terms in French were a great amusement to them.
