Ok, I asked this question in another thread and nobody answered, so I figured I'd throw my stupidity out there for all to see and hopefully get an answer. I looked it up but couldn't find anything. :eek: Sooo, either I'm net stupid orrrrr ... (fill in the blank here)

P.S. -- My first poll so hopefully I do it right.

I think that the word punum was used to refer to a puppy, a doggie, a pooch, etc, like all the slang names that we used to refer to our "puppers":D

I always understood a punum to be the face. Makes me think of an old Jewish grandmother talking about kissing their grandchild on their cute punum.

Oooo, is this a new game for us to play? Like balderdash for the forum. Maybe we can have one word a day that someone makes up a bunch of different answers and we guess the right one! Hey that would be fun!

as per the urban dictionary online

1.punum
Hebrew for "face", usually expressed with affection.

2.Punum

Being cup-cake-like, very cute, and "aww" worthy.

3. punum

all it takes is a google search...

Yes but one person googling teaches one person, while a thread teaches hundreds. Yey! And we get a cool game idea out of it too.;)

Thanks for the answers guys. It looks like face takes the cake. :D It is fun to see what others think. I did do a google search and it said I spelled it wrong. It wanted to know if I meant punIM. I figured I'd ask here, since I thought maybe it was someone's doggy term. So, when someone says what a cute punum that is in reference to someone's doggy, it KIND of means those kissable lips as they are attached to the referenced doggy's face. :crazy: Anyway, I LOVE Balderdash. My husband hates board games of any kind, especially timed ones, so it's hard to find someone to play with. :yell: That's waaaaay :offtopic: , but since it's my thread can I be :offtopic: ? And before anyone asks, no I have not been taking my dog's pain meds. SHE won't take them either though. Ok, I'll shut up now. Good bye.

I must say that I have liberally used the term "punum" in my posts...my apologies if you didn't know what it meant! :o

Frenchy is becoming even more trilingual as we speak!! "Ella only parle en francais from ahora on"!!! :D Did you like that one?? It took me while to come up with it!!

Ok, enough threadjacking...sorry brandy!:o
