Word Of The Day: “hargh”

Submitted by on March 18, 2012 – 10:32 AM2 Comments

From some of the same people who brought you “hew,” a handy portmanteau of “hee” and “ew,” comes this new coinage, compliments of the Couch Baron.

hargh.¬†interj. Combination of “hee” and “argh,” used to express amused irritation. (“Running a little late. Traffic backed up to the Belt junction b/c a chicken truck wrecked. Hens all over the median, hargh.”)

    “We would have met you here at the zoo cafeteria sooner, but the hippo started pooping and little Bobby insisted on staying to watch. Hargh! And hew.”

    hargh. interj. Combination of “hee” and “argh,” used to express amused irritation.

    I would amend that to: hargh. interj. Combination of “hee” and “argh,” used BY PIRATES to express amused irritation.

    There. Fixed that for you. ;)
