Macroom*

A type of accommodation available when a fast food giant goes into the hotel business.

*Yes, it has been liffed before -- 986102 and, even further back, so long ago that it was posted on papyrus, 276

I'm hoping you're meaning the Liff and not the man himself. Australians on welfare/security payments, myself included, aren't that enamoured with him, after his decisions on certain things.

Here you go, make yourselves sick with this lot. I've been noting them down on the offchance that I might be able to think of a Liff for them but I can't be arsed anymore. They might've been used, they might not.

I'm done.

Yay, Bondee! Long time, no see! Keeping well?

Thanks for the list. Some quite good potential there.

Mavis Enderby has, one could argue, been taken, as it is the name of a character in Jodi Taylor's series of books The Chronicles of St Marys. She is in charge of Wardrobe, ensuring that people who go back in time to observe historical events are properly clad.

It was also used as a Liff in the original book.

Quote:
Mavis Enderby (n.)
The almost completely forgotten girlfriend from your distant past for whom your wife has a completely irrational jealousy and hatred.

The opposite of a Mavis Enderby (q.v.). An unrequited early love of your life who still causes terrible pangs though she inexplicably married a telephone engineer.

An (unbelievably bad but) imaginary case of piles, surely?

Although who would send you a caseful of such items, I dread to think.

Addressing Bondee's list:

Goltho and Whaplode have been used, I'm sure - wasn't Goltho a mad scientist's hideously deformed assistant?

Anyway...

Feckenham n.

The slightly guilty but also self-righteous feeling of having committed faccombe (see Afterliff).

I thought that Feckenham was a scale used by Irish broadcasters to allow or bar certain levels of profanity at different times of the evening.
'Feck' may be used from 2000-2100 with an advisory prior to broadcast, but freely after that.
'Fock' only after 2200 with an advisory announcement.

That sort of thing.
