Quel Quelymns

I'm often amused as the random letter combinations that are used on blogger for word verification for comments.
This is the word verification from the comment that I just made on Deja Pseu's blog.

Quelymns, doesn't it sound like the name of something out of Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels?
That word sounds to me like a civilization of cunning Frenchmen who speak with sneering accents as they peer down their long aquiline noses?
But that's just me.
Happy Friday everybody!

To me it sounds like a term used to describe words...(e.g. homonym, synonym).

Quelymns: when idiot advertising copy writers add an é to the end of an English word to make it seem French.

Feceplet is my word...sounds gross, doesn't it?

This is hilarious. I can totally see what you mean. I better start paying attention to those words now too, cause I never do.
Have a fabulous weekend!

Pseu: I like your definition much better than mine. I was just reminded of the Houyhnhnms from the book.
Jill: eeew, that is a disgusting sounding word!
Angie: Maybe we need to create our own neologism for the word verification word! Have a great weekend.

It sounds like Franglais to me: quelle limbs! (What long legs you have, Mr. Gulliver . . ."
