lets see who can find the strangest word of all. This is supposed to be a game so one entry at a time if you will. pretty much anything goes as long as it conforms to the rules of the fourm and the thread.

things that count
any words that you youreslf did not create. So pretty much anyword so long as it can be can be found in a legit referance. so any language from latin to klingon is acceptable. As are names of diseases, medical terms and science words.

Added: Signiture phrases.
Added: Try for correct spelling
Added: If you know a word that has a unique history to it your welcome to tell us. I've been doing it.

Things that dont count
only langauges you made up with you friends and piglatin is unacceptable
no names of people or other site members

Now that you have the rules i will start with:

Crigler-najjar Syndrome

Xylophone is one of the few X words and if you didn't know the word in English you'd have a totally different picture of what it was. "Xylophone Mobile....we can't hear a damn thing."
