Word of the Day: jabberwocky

jab·ber·wocky noun \ˈja-bər-ˌwä-kē\:  meaningless speech or writing.

Here’s a scene from A Christmas Story where the father speaks in jabberwocky/profanities. It makes me laugh every time.

The Word of the Day started with this post.

  2. Me too, so we read chapter 1 of Through the Looking Glass today. When I started reading the Jabberwocky poem she started giggling and then gave me a look like, “Wait a minute…” It was too cute. I hope this is the memory she has when she thinks of this word. 🙂

Don't be shy! I'd love to hear from you.
