Q . . . Quibble

Once in a while I come across a word that makes me laugh. QUIBBLE is just such a word. Whenever I hear it I think of these . . .

I know. I know. All you Star Trek fans out there are screaming, NOT QUIBBLE you idiot, TRIBBLE.  I do know the difference, but that doesn't mean I can't see those fuzzy little creatures in my mind every time I hear QUIBBLE.

So, what does Quibble really mean?  Here's Websters take on it.

Sorry, didn't mean for this to be a vocabulary lesson. I just like the word. A lot. And for a little fun, try to say all those rhyming words in a row really fast. :-)

Is there a word that makes you laugh? Or maybe one you like because of how it rolls of your tongue?


  1. I keep thinking I could be a Star Trek fan and I just never got into it...

    I love words - micturate makes me laugh all the time.

  2. My first thought was The Quibbler— the magazine from the Harry Potter books.

    And I'm not a Star Trek fan but I have seen that Tribbles episode. It was a lot of fun.

  3. Quibbles over Tribbles.

    Big Trek and Potter fan here!

    I am trying to read all the A to Z blogs, but coming back to the ones I really like.
    Looking forward to seeing what you do all month!

  4. When I was in junior high I was a total Trekkie. I sewed tribbles out of fake fur. :P
