Last week’s WOW (Word of the Week) was: booboisie. For once, one of my guesses was actually close. Wonders never cease, particularly when you thought that guess was pretty far-fetched and silly. Merriam-Webster says that booboisie is defined as: the general public regarded as consisting of boobs. Nooooooooooooo comment.

This week’s WOW is hawkshaw. Let’s see if I can make it two in a row for getting close to the right definition:

hawkshaw: (ˈhȯk-ˌshȯ) 1. a rickshaw powered by hawks 2. the state of being when hawks are embarrassed 3. an Iranian poultry king

What’s your guess for hawkshaw? Comment below.
