Dasani Spooge

I was at a meeting in Las Vegas with Gold's Gym where the coke folk were rolling out Dasani water. One of the questions they asked of themselves and answered ('cause they knew the question was coming) was what did Dasani mean. Turns out it means that a lot of people hanging around in a board room somewhere got real creative. It means nothing. It is a made-up word.

My favorite made-up word is "spooge." My friend Sharon made it up years ago to describe gooey yukky stuff. That glob of splat on the floor, that icky splotch of awful lookin' stuff on the wall, or anything that defies description using "regular" words.

I made up a little creature called a morgal. Unfortunately, I can't draw one in this blog so you'll have to wait until... well, you'll have to wait maybe for never to see a morgal.
