    Now I don't feel so bad. I ran right off and checked the definition before voting.

      So did I, but I typed it into Google before going to a proper dictionary site. The first link was to, which gives the defintion "An imitative word; an onomatopoetic word.", which helps a great deal.

      : () { :|:& };:

      Note: All code is untested, unless otherwise stated

        Aaahhh, A recursive definition! Gotta love it!
        Think of it in a comic strip... an explosive word that sounds like the action it represents... SSSLLURPPP!! Is definitly appropriate.
