Word of the Day


I was doing research on the internet the other day, and stumbled across this amazing word:

badonkadonk

Did you know that it means Extremely curvaceous female buttocks?

According to the onomatopoeic dictionary Written Sound:

When the immense, rounded muscle tissue of the rear creates a sound wave ripping through the local environment making a pressure wave against the ear drum in a pleasing Ba-dOnk-a-dOnk rhythm.

Also: A woman's derriere that has the shape of, and bounces like a basketball. The word is derived from the sound produced when you bounce a basketball.

The definitions in the Urban dictionary are well worth investigating too. (There are pictures!)

Now we know you are not a country music fan. Trace Atkins did a song on
Badonkadonks a few years back.

For those who like to see HIGHLY spankable Badonkadonks, see this Youtube.

I had heard of it before but had never traced the word to it's origins :)

eNo, Hermoine, I did'nt know the meaning of the word 'Badonkadonks', But if I had a choice to its meaning, I would have just substituted the word 'Hermoine', which in my humble opinion would mean the same thing. Would'nt you agree?

Red said...

i do not think I can even pronounce this word... but if that is what it is called, the sight and sound has always been enticing.

Daisychain said...

Dave said...

Hmm have heard this excellent tushy-tastic word used before, but never knew how to spell it....now I know:-)

I wonder who first made up this word and how..."Geez, look at that backside...what a nice...badonkadonk."

Hermione said...

Joey - Glad you enjoyed it.

Bogey - I didn't know the word had been around that long. thanks for the video link.

Mick - Now you know.

Sixofthebest - Well, if you insist :)

Red - Sure you can pronounce it. Close your eyes and pretend you're Meadowlark Lemon.

Ronnie - Someone had a vivid imagination when they came up with the word.

Wordsmith - It does sound like a bouncing ball.

Daisy - Sure, go ahead.

Dave - The backside must have had vertical black lines on it.

Hugs,
Hermione

Love it :) Now I am going to spend the next few days trying to think of a way that I can slip this into a conversation in real life. Not easy when most of my conversations are in Flemish.

Hermione said...

Prefectdt - Perhaps it might pass as a horticultural name for some exotic species of shrub, native to the Southern US.

Hugs,
Hermione

Burl said...

You have a genius for fun.

Lea said...

Good to know. I always thought Snoop Dogg made it up. :-)

CedenoGems said...

That's hilarious, but yeh, I generally knew it meant that! LOL

You come up with some crazy stuff woman!

Little Butterfly said...

Ha! And here I thought it was just a slang word made up by Missy Elliot! You provide us with so much knowledge! :)

Hermione said...

Burl - I try my best.

Lea - I didn't realize the word was so popular.

Cedenogems - I guess the meaning is obvious when used in context.

Little Butterfly - Missy Elliot too? That word is so popular.

Hugs,
Hermione
