Farctate
Farc”tate
Adj: Stuffed; filled solid, the state of having overeaten.

  
This word feels incorrect to me when I use it in a sentence.  I am farctate after that Thanksgiving feast.  However, it feels much better in this form: A farctated diner is one who has overeaten and therefore couldn’t eat another bite. Which of course, reminds me of another Monty Python favorite: Poor Mr. Creosote, who lost it all when he partook of a wafer thin mint.

Farctate also feels a bit onomatopoeic (onomatopoetic?) when you envision yourself leaning back in your chair at the table and groan, oh my goodness I am farctate!

It is one of those that sounds naughty but alas, is not.  (certain to entertain the kids!)

A friend and I took our little guys to lunch and they had a hilarious time tickling each other.  :)

  1. I hate the feeling of being so full that even sitting is painful. Farctate definitely brings that feeling to mind, as the word isn’t very kind on my ears.

    Thanks for yet another informative and funny post, Corinne!

    1. I learned to slow down while eating and when I get farctate it is the wost! My hubby wolfs down his food and finds himself here often. Thanks for visiting my posts Vero!!

  2. If you pronounce the second A as you have to do the first it’s not so bad on the ears but still not my favourite word. New word to me and great post.

  3. I have always enjoyed eating as much as possible. I used to sit for 10 minutes or so after stuffing myself, just so I could eat more. And all the while, I couldn’t put an ounce on my male 128 lb, 5′-11″ frame. A walking vacuum cleaner!

    Oh, to have those days back. Now I have to remind myself to eat less so I don’t keep on packing the pounds!

  4. What a wonderful word, a new one on me – the word, not the feeling *sigh*.

    At least not in the past. These days, discomfort wins out over desire – which is, probably, a good thing.

    Thanks for the new word.
