New Word

snagglewhack, verb

Also: snaggledwhacked, snagglewhacking, snagglewhacker (noun)

Definition of SNAGGLEWHACK: (1) To purposefully lessen the amount of work, level of difficultly, or amount of time expected for a home improvement project when explaining said project during a request for help from a friend; (2) To obtain assistance from a friend to help with a home improvement project through deceitful explanation of project


When it was determined during The Rock Project that I needed to stop assisting, we determined that Adam would need to find someone to help.  After talking to our friend Dan and learning that Dan was more than willing to help, I asked Adam if he told Dan that it was less work than what it was really going to be.  Exactly how the word came about is lost to me, but basically, I said something along the lines of, “Well, I just don’t want Dan to get…” and couldn’t finish the sentence.  I was looking for “swindled”.  Adam promptly spit out, “Snagglewhacked?”  And, a new word was born.  We both laughed and laughed and laughed.  Three weeks and some change later, all one of us has to do is say the word “snagglewhacked” and we both start laughing.  It took us approximately two weeks to come up with the word “swindled”.
