Beware the borborygmi

Today's Word of the Day:


noun: A rumbling noise caused by the movement of gas through the intestines.

Personally, I think "borborygmus" sounds like the name of a prehistoric monster.

"Run, Chet! It's a borborygmus, and it looks hungry!"

"Looks like you got borborygmi in your back yard, ma'am. I'm gonna have to lay down some traps."

"As the juvenile borborygmi left the nest for the first time, the adult borborygmus kept a watchful eye for larger predators ..."

Tee hee!

I just call it a "rumbly in the tummy" but that's cool that it actually has a scientific name.
