Kumquats!

Photobucket

Ever tried them? These little suckers are delicious. They are like little tiny oranges that you can pop in your mouth and eat, peel and all. It's a very tart/sweet taste. And I love the name kumquat. It sounds like some sort of pelvic exercise, doesn't it?

"After having a baby, Jan did fifty kumquats a day to tighten up."

Or it could be used as a term of endearment.

"Come to me, my little kumquat."

Or maybe I'll use it as an alternative to cursing.

"Oh kumquats! You kumquating beeyotch!"


Hmmmm. Okay, I don't really know where I'm going with this. Oh well, what else is new, huh?

Ooh, I want to try them now, too. If only I could get a girl to let me watch her do kumquats. Sigh. Or onions.

WendyB said...

I need to do 200 kumquats a day to tighten up.

Diane said...

I've never had one, but I predict kumquats are in my future

Hmmmm... great word

"I got smacked soundly after grabbing her kumquats!"

Yes, I must use this word more in everyday life.

Re little orange-like things, I have recently tried Sweet Clementines. Unfortunately, those sound more like a barbershop quartet ladies auxiliary, don't they?

Did you see the kumquats on that hooter's girl!

You have been growing quite popular among my people, I must say. You have inspired me to start a blog as well. And also a few others. I look forward to commenting on your rants about boobies and barns!

Oh, Pru, you little Kumquat, you're so cute.

Hi there! From Argentina again. I think Kumquats are called "Kinotos" in Argentina. We usually say in a polite way "no romp├ís los kinotos" when we are telling someone to "fu@k off"! So, how about "don´t break my kumquats!" (literal transaltion).

I dig the kumquat as "curseword" category myself.

Krissyface said...

I am so lazy that I love any fruit I can eat without taking off the peel. I am from this day forward on Team Kumquat.

Krissyface said...

"Team Kumquat" sounds like something Jessica Simpson would have written on a tee shirt.
Little fucking kumquat that she is.

LOL @ Krissyface!!!

Jessica Simpson was the first thing that came to mind as I let the word "kumquat" roll around my tongue.

MsPuddin said...

LOL is kumquat chicken or tuna?

Kumquats are the new prunes so I hear.

I think there was a kumquat tree in the neighborhood when I was a kid; however, I'm much more interested in a new phrase I just heard.

Fuck-cunting (verb)

Example: "Stop fuck-cunting around at the office and get some work done."

If I were capable of loving anything it would be the English language. This concludes my random nonsense for the evening.

Prunella Jones said...

Morb- Wow! Any phrase that combines two of the most offensive words in the language is pretty impressive indeed. I bow to the person who created such a handy verb for those of us who love to curse.
