Pribble is dribble
Mere kibbutzing kibble

A bickering flickering of dickering
Over this, that, and the other thing

Or even about NOTHING at all

No bread? . . . no problem
Let them eat cake!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Says it all, Nancy. Your words have a life all their own 🙂
Lovely.

Thanks for the inspiration, Kate! As soon as I read the definition of pribble (a new-to-me word) . . . the rest flowed in short order. 😀

nrhatch - March 11, 2012

Mmm . . . coffee cake break! 😀

Thanks for the fun theme, Sidey. Have a FAB Sunday.

Brilliant, Nancy, I more than ‘like’ it, I love it! Perfect pic too…

nrhatch - March 11, 2012

Thanks, Ruth. I rather enjoyed dabbling with pribble. What a lovely new-to-me word. 😀

All these cake posts today sure are making me hungry………. 🙂

nrhatch - March 11, 2012

It’s a conspiracy . . . Sidey is trying to fatten us all up! 😉

I could use some cake right now…

nrhatch - March 11, 2012

I had to satisfy my craving with white chocolate covered pretzels.

6. Naomi - March 11, 2012

LOL…love this new pribble word too, Nancy, although the iPad doesn’t – it just auto-corrected to “probable” 😀

nrhatch - March 11, 2012

Pribble is new-to-me but known to Shakespeare . . . an antiquated word worth reviving for wordsmiths everywhere.

WP spell check thinks I’m drunk. 😉

7. Patricia - March 11, 2012

Don’t know about pribble but cake is always good…

nrhatch - March 11, 2012

Right now, I could go for a slice of carrot cake laced with pineapple, nuts, raisins, and coconut . . . and covered in cream cheese frosting.

Oh, where is a baker when you need one? 😉

8. jakesprinter - March 11, 2012

Great post Nancy I love Cakes 🙂

nrhatch - March 11, 2012

Thanks, Jake! Which rhymes with CAKE!

9. Jas - March 11, 2012

What a pribble dribble… got to go and bake a cake just now…

nrhatch - March 12, 2012

I came close to doing that myself . . . instead, I just ate more chocolate. 😉

10. sufilight - March 11, 2012

Now I know a new word, “pribble” will show off with my s/o and use it causally in conversation. LOL 🙂

nrhatch - March 12, 2012

Kate shared some wonderful slang words from Shakespearean times and since. “Lean-witted, aren’t you?” sounds ever so much kinder than “Don’t be stupid.” 😉

11. sweetdaysundertheoaks - March 12, 2012

I like the word “pribble” and enjoyed my click over to Kate’s blog. Always fun to find new things! Fun post Nancy!

nrhatch - March 12, 2012

Kate writes fascinating posts about all manner of assundry under the sun.

The slang use of “Custom’s Officer” opened a few eyes. 😯

12. eof737 - March 14, 2012

This would make a great rap song. 😉

nrhatch - March 14, 2012

Maybe I can get Adele to include it on her next CD! 😉
