Word Up, YO! Week 10

header 150x150

This week led to a lot of malarky.

At the end of the day, Funky Mama Bird battled with a sentient MalarkOMeter and Sherri tried to get her younger self to stop selling herself a bunch of marlarky.

Funky Mama Bird, Sherri, in the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now Made Men.

Please contact one of the Dons to get the code for your button.

Associates of the Nerd Mafia, take heed: there is a new plot a foot.

This week, to celebrate our tenth week of Word Up, Yo! we’re trying something new.

There will be no WOW!

We’ll wait for you to stop shuddering in horror at the prospect of a week without a WOW!

This week, you’ll need to act like scavengers. Because the Nerd Mafia is hosting a Scavenger Hunt.

The Made Men will be using past WOWs in their posts this week. They can use as many of the words they like, in as many posts from Sunday – Wednesday as they choose. The challenge is for you to find as many of these words as possible. When you find one, note it in the comments of the post. If you find multiple words in one post, please list all that you find.

Whichever Associate (read: someone who has not yet been Made) finds the most words used this week will join the ranks of Made Men.

To help, a list of the Made Men’s blogs. You may find WOWs at any of these blogs, on any day from Sunday – Wednesday. You must be vigilant to win.

Made Men:
A Day in the Life of a Surferwife
Common Sense, Dancing
Crazy with a Side of Awesome Sauce
In Pursuit of Martha Points
It’s Blogworthy
Lula Lola
The Adventures of Chip and Bob
The Flying Chalupa

Past WOWs!, in no particular order:

hot mess

Go forth and prosper. And no shanking one another.


  1. This was utterly confusing to me for the first minute or so. I'm sure the wine didn't help my cognitive abilities... however, I've now figured it out and it looks TOO FUN!!! I'm all about nerds & mafia.... so right up my ally. Going to read over all of them to get the hang and hopefully play along :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, btw. :) Looooving yours! Following now. Happy weekend!!

  2. I am speechless....which rarely happens, so I will go get some coffee. I'm a Made Man!! What should I wear??
  3. That sounds fun. Wish my attention span would catch up with my curiosity.
  4. Oh boy, I may have to sit this one out... my head is spinning.
