New Word for "Daffynition"
 
Thank you, maryse, for selecting me as the winner for "bardolatry." In the USA, the real definition of the next word will be very important next week. I don ´t want the real definition; I want to see your best confabulations of it!
 
The Word of the Day is...
 
Magirology.
 
I ´ll pick a winner either when I get a good selection of daffynitions or when the topic goes off the board, whichever I feel like. Enjoy!

It is the study of sunflowers, with specific reference to size. Why do some sunflowers grow to monster proportions, their stamens and other flowery bits reaching to join their namesake in the sky, whereas some droop and stoop and look as miserable as sin? It is actually a truly fascinating field of research.

Magirology is the new hype so-called science, which is a mixture of magic and astrology. It ´s purpose is to use magic combined with the study of the astrological signs in order to heal people from all diseases.

@jfaraujo, that daffynition is genius!
 
But here is the real one. It is the ability to make every member who reads this forum add a daffynition. People who have this power, i.e. petit old moi, just have to concentrate and wish this to happen. Right, eyes closed..... (Pause). Done!  Let ´s have your daffynitions!!!
