The Icktionary

Many, many moons ago, some folks from Clorox asked if I would contribute some words to a new website they were creating, an Icktionary. I love words, and I love grossness, so the Icktinoary was right up my alley in name alone.

The site is filled with funny words for the grossness you'll encounter everyday life, and the hope, of course, is that you'll use a fine product from Clorox to clean up said ickiness when you see it.

Because I have the maturity of a seven-year-old, I'm a big fan airbola (also known as flyarrhea), the word for when you sit next to a sick person on an airplane. I'm also a fan of Germs of Endearment—when your loved ones sneeze all over your face and clothes. 

Also, I'm a dad. So, you know. Experience.
