Dear Members: The Word was ...
 
BORBORYGMUS
 
The WINNER is ...
 
Maryse Pey: An Excellent Entry!


BORBORYGMUS   DEFINITION: "A rumbling or gurgling noise made by the movement of fluid and gas in the intestines".
 
I should make it clear, that the definition given above is the CORRECT British-English version.
 
The American-English version is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. The USA version is Gangster Slang for the famous American Highwayman, Al Fonz Cap One ... because NO-ONE dared to speak the name out LOUD.
 
"BOR BOR YG MUS"
 
When it is said BACKWARDS, it reads: =   "SUM GY ROB ROB"   =   "SOME GUY, ROB, ROB!"
 
That s true!

CONGRATULATIONS, Maryse!
