Thank you Les for choosing my daffinition for the October 21, 2018 Word of the Day contest.
 
The new Word of the Day to define is "frugivorous".   I eagerly await your imaginative,  funny, whisical, clever, witty, fun, and crazy definitions. (Remember the definition has to be made up, not the actual meaning).
 
Looking forward to your entries!

Well it is a winter word :
 
FRU is for FROID (the French word for cold in English)
GI is for GIVRE (the French word for frozen in English)
VO is for VORTEX
ROUS is for ROUGH
 
So the meaning is : a rough vortex in which there is only cold able to frozen you at once !
 
HELP !

 It ´┐Żs not a winter word -  - it ´┐Żs a capitalist word :
Frug / (i) VOR / ous
Frug = a popular dance in Europe, similar to the twist
Vor : ( Internet use ) = Victims Of Recession 
Ous = suffix meaning full of
Frugivorous =  adjective to describe poor people-  from capitalist countries - who cannot stop twisting around in pain´┐Ż.
 
so similar to the French word ( & Latin based´┐Ż) ! I found it very difficult ;-)
Apologies LOL

Do you need a witch by your side?? Do you wanna make spells to those you hate?? Here you are the magic word, so that a witch will come to you inmediatly!! Frugivorous!!!!
Fruga comes from Bruja in spanish, bruixa in gaelic and fruga in the magic language!
Vor is For in german
Ous is us in English
So you just have to say "FRUGIVOROUS!!" AND YOU WILL INMEDIATLY HAVE A WITCH BY YOUR SIDE!!
