Wacky Word Wednesday - Japes

Japes
by Rachel Hoyt

I like to rhyme jolly japes,
Joke and laugh like a bunch of apes,
Jest about juggling green grapes,
And spread the word that jokes are japes.

Every week I rhyme and define a new wacky word.
Come on over to indulge your inner nerd.
And, please let me know of any weird words you've heard!

    1. Oooh... balaclava! That sounds fun to rhyme indeed!! I probably won't use it for wacky word Wednesday, but I'll try to find a way to work it in for you. :) :)

    2. All this time I was thinking I was rhyming baklava for you... Now I see balaclava is much more unique. :)

  4. Japes, hmmm? Sounds like a strawberry banana flavor of ice cream. Or, oooooh hey!, maybe really, really juicy grape Popsicles!
