919: Tween Bromance
Title text: Verbiage. Va-jay-jay. Irregardless.
Apparently, Randall hates some ridiculous neologisms. Cueball seems to be dictating a "Tween bromance" story or novel to Megan, who is possibly typing it up. He is including all the words that get to Megan in a sequence. Megan is just annoyed and starts to shriek in rage; considering Cueball keeps speaking more annoying words in the title text, that seems to have been the point.
- "Tween" means a pre-adolescent. Portmanteau of teen and between, specifically above the age of 9 (the last value not in the tens) and below the age of 13 (the first actual "-teen" number).
- "Bromance" means a close non-sexual friendship between two males. Portmanteau of brother and romance.
- "Guesstimate" means an estimate made with very little information. Portmanteau of guess and estimate.
- "Frenemy" means a friend who is also a rival. Portmanteau of friend and enemy.
- "Yiff" is a word invented by the furry community. In most contexts it simply means "copulate", supposedly derived from the sound a fox makes during mating, and can refer to any form of sexual activity, including cybersex.
- "moist" is an ordinary word, but one that many people find mildly creepy, especially in this context.
- "Taint" is the part between the genitals and the anus (perineum) in slang.
- "Panties" is a common term in the U.S. for women's underwear.
- "Preggers" a slang term for being pregnant.
- "verbiage" is a fairly new usage of an older word, meaning too many words used to explain a subject.
- "Va-jay-jay" /vəˈjājā/ IPA /vəˈdʒeɪdʒeɪ/ is just a way of saying "vagina".
- "Irregardless" is a solecism. Or perhaps this portmanteau.
So, the full sentence roughly translates to: By my rough guess, my friend-slash-rival engaged in sexual activity so intensely that her wet perineum caused her underwear to become pregnant.
This is probably nonsensical, as clothing cannot bear children. It may also reflect Cueball’s intentional parody of writers who lack understanding of anatomy/basic reasoning. However, at a stretch, the word “preggers” could be interpreted to refer to the rare, literal meaning of pregnant: full/filled. By this logic, “her moist taint made her panties preggers” would simply be an unusual way to say “her underwear were filled up with liquid”. But in that case: ew.
Like this comic fills a sentence with (gross) neologisms, 550: Density crams a sentence with memes.
