I opened up Beefy’s Dictionary of Excellence where the term “Shitflank” is defined and flip through the pages. Flip flip flip.
Here it is, Flangiprop – 1. A flange for prop flanges.
That doesn’t help me at all. I mean, I can understand why there would be prop flanges, although I don’t see why they couldn’t just be regular flanges. I mean, wouldn’t they do the same exact thing?
And how does a flange need a flange? Even if it’s a fake flange, using a real flange on it seems to be pointless and redundant to me.
Oh wait, here’s another definition that just popped up miraculously.
Flangiprop – 2. A prop two-pointed pick ax used by miners, particularly in a play. Could also be a digital one for video games.
Okay, that sort of makes sense. A two pointed pick is known as a Flang, so that sort of works. And I see where the digital part comes in, the “i” between “flang” and “prop.” It’s all making perfect sense now.
So you could use this in a sentence that would go something like either, “The flangiprop won’t work until we can get a real flange to put there to help the fake flange work.”
Or alternatively, “Man, I’m totally digging up the coal with my flangiprop on this awesome video game of miners and what not!”
I don’t know, that’s just what the dictionary tells me. What do you think it means?
