Say What?

Time for a new contest!

Are you wondering what the title of this post means? Well, you can thank Lynn Marcotte for this great definition:

capitalisms — words used to describe capybaras (entry #1)

And that is what this contest is about: words used to describe capybaras!

To enter the contest think up a real word or make up a word and then provide a definition for it that involves capybaras. Another example is:

That one was provided by Brian Weisel.
