?. – we don’t know what kind of word it is

Ex. – example

;} – separates one definition from another definition for the same word. Similar to the numbering system used in actual dictionaries. The reason we don’t use numbers in our definitions is because we use numbers sometimes to define a certain word, and will thus complicate the definition. Another reason is because the dictionary is always adding definitions to existing words.

Pick of August 4, 2007

davepoobond:  Its been recently unveiled to me that the web site is not, as they say, as popular as some of the bigger/more popular web sites out there.  Interesting hypothesis I said to myself.  Then I asked myself, “ARE there other humor sites out there?”  The simple answer to that, in my expert opinion, is no.  Thus, I have proven the hypothesis false.

davepoobond:  The dictionary has finally hit a landmark.  5000 words!  It is quite amazing, in my professional opinion that so many words have been added manually, with no automatic alphabetizer except for my brain, spending two hours on each 100 words that are added to get all the words I’ve made up over the years or picked up into it.  Anyway…there’s also some other stuff…

Pick of October 18, 2005

davepoobond:  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! Its been 6 years since we’ve been on the web in some form!  So here’s a somewhat big update.  I might add some more through the day/week, so check back every now and then.  Read through all the past updates at the Site History.

Also, somehow along the way, I miscounted the amount of words in the dictionary, so instead of 100 new words, 210 new words have been added so that there are still 100 more words from the last update.

UPDATE 6-30-05

Pick of June 30, 2005  — Yes, its NEW.

davepoobond: OKAY!  Finally an update.  I’ve been busy working on other projects besides Squackle, but now that I’ve got some actual free time the next couple days, there should be more things being done here.  Not necessarily updates, but you’ll eventually notice a permanent link to Gamersmark.com on the side bar right under the Squackle shop picture, since, if you didn’t know, I’m a writer there and there is already a similar link to Squackle on that site.  So, if you’re interested in games and gaming news, check out the site, and read some of my writing over there.  You’ll know who I am if you look at the staff page, I’m sure.

I’m also going to make it a goal of mine to make it so that the big title bar that says Squackle on it will come back to this page when clicked on it by next week.  Sounds nifty, don’t it?  Yeah, I bet you think it is.

If its a fat update you want, I’m not sure how heavy this sucker is gonna be.  We’ll see how far it comes along in the next few days or so.  I guess something of the sort is warranted after three months of nothing.  Maybe I’ll put up some more submissions that have been accumulated over the years.

UPDATE 1-16-05

Pick of January 16, 2005

davepoobond: well, finally a new year….and if you’re expecting any resolutions from me, you can just blow it out your rear. Why should I change according to popular opinion saying you need to change something you do at the beginning of the year and end up not having done anything about it in the end anyway? I turned 19 on the 5th of January. Hooray for me…19 is the worst age, you don’t get any more rights than you were when you were 18…same as 20, except 20 is one year away from being 21.

Pick of December 14, 2004

davepoobond: you know a movie is bad when the info for the movie criticizes it.  This is TV Guide’s description for League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Seven literary characters search for a coherent plot in this extremely ordinary adventure based on the comic book series.  There are so many wrong things with this description.  For one thing, seven literary characters looking for a coherent plot would be something that, I would make, and this isn’t the actual movie’s plot for the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, at all.  BOO TV Guide.

I’m going to change the way I do updates on Squackle now.  Since it takes forever to make big updates, I’m going to just put stuff up in small spurts.  It’ll go by the particular day I update, and I’ll make a new update quote thing every month…let’s just see how it goes.
