Llama Vocabulary Terms

Cindy, a frequent visitor to the Butcher's Shop who happens to be a real live Llama breeder, asks a perfectly legitimate question:

Explain something to me: What is a Yip? and what is an Orgle? :-) I know what a real orgle is but in what way are you guys using it?

Well, I think it's safe to say that I can answer for both Steve-O and myself, although he may want to add a few thoughts of his own.

"Yip" is just our little way of expressing acknowledgement, congratulations or encouragement to someone, usually just after we've stolen an idea from them. You may argue that real Llamas don't make such a noise, in reply to which we would remind you that although this technically may be true, we are delusional after all, so it does not matter.

As for "orgle", well that one was foisted on us by certain smart-asses among our fellow bloggers and we just ran with it, coming up with new forms such as "orgle-licious", "orgle-worthy" and others. (It really is a very flexible word.) These days we like to use it and its progeny as particular marks of appreciation with just a hint of naughtiness thrown in. Think of it as being somewhere between Gollum's "We wants it!" and Austin Powers' "Yeah, Baybee!"

All clear? Now, we can't have a vocabulary lesson without a quiz, can we? I'd like each of you to take the two words above and use them in one or more sentences. You may use any derivative of the word "orgle" and you may use either word in the sentence part of your choice.

Are you ready? Then please begin......

The danged mu.nu TBs aren't working with my site again. Consider yourself "orgled".

While comparing notes, the Llama wives found it amusing that at the height of passion, Robert yips, while Steve orgles.

Why you always pick on me? haha The last comment is funny - in real life, the male orgles big time but then (if I can remember that far back) the females never make a sound. Yips and Orgles, too funny. I still can't tell the difference between the meanings you gave me. So I never know where to put my comment.

Robert - you crack me up. Being here is always fun.

If I want to be "orgled" I want to see what the guy looks like first. :-)

I believe Sadie has the pix. Apparently Paris Hilton feels the same way you do. I dare you.

Two Yips up for the orgle-tastic film, How Wooly Was My Llama. The film follows the trials and tribulations of the Morgans, who run a llama butchering collective in turn-of-the-(20th)-century Wales that is beset by the intrusions of impending industrialization. The rest of the family puts everything into their gradually failing collective,to give young son Robert a chance at a better life.

Surprisingly, the sequel, How Meaty Was My Snippy, following Robert's experiences as a family man/co-blogger (with like-minded llama fetishist Steve), in turn-of-the-(21st)-century America, was not as well received.

Hi Guys!!

Didn't know where to put this news. It's Saturday the 26th and at noontime,I delivered a brand new spanking baby llama. He was so big, his Mom needed help and let me tell you, I am not Ms Big or Ms Strong but had to be today. He's the son of my favorite llama that died suddenly in June. Had to bring him in the house to do the things that needed to be done and his huge mother came in, too. Very cool.
