Word of the Day: Globster


Am I the only person who didn't know until just now the meaning of the word globster?

Never heard of it either, Martha.

Oops that was me: I guess I made a globster of that one.

Oh, and we have many words in our own Word! queue, but "globster" will be up next after them.

I'm a landlubber, so I guess I never knew there was a need for such a word.

However, I have read enough pirate literature to know the difference between flotsam (goods or wreckage from a wrecked ship), jetsam (goods deliberately cast off from a ship in distress), and lagan/ligan (goods attached to a buoy for later retrieval). But you probably knew that already.

Martha, thanks for your cool site!

That is fascinating. So was the "Blob" of the famous movie inspired by a "globster"?
