Rhema Words: Flapdoodle

There.  I just saw it.  The crinkle of confusion in your brow mixed with a smile and a chuckle as you said, “Flapdoodle?  What on earth is a Flapdoodle?” 

My friend Christine brought this word to my attention after hearing it in the movie Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, which is now on my list of movies to see.  Flapdoodle simply means “nonsense.”  

Say it out loud with me.  Oh, you can do it.  Come on.  Nobody’s listening.  Well, okay, whisper it then.  Ready?  Set?  Go.  Flapdoodle.  Flapdoodle.  See?  You can’t help but smile when you say it.  :)

In all of the news these days about stock market roller-coasters, riots, deficits and deals, hurricanes and cancer and murder and the sheer overload of general world nonsense, couldn’t we all use a little FUN nonsense?  Let’s get some frivolity, some amusement, some LIFE going today!

FLAPDOODLE, MY FRIENDS!   FLAPDOODLE!  (I know I got a smile out of you that time)  :)  

A cheerful heart is good medicine.  (Proverbs 17:22) 

He will once again fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. (Job 8:21) 

For the happy heart, life is a continual feast. (Proverbs 15:15)

I vote that, instead of the Hokey Pokey, we start to do the Flap Doodle.  “You put your flap in, you put your doodle out, you put your flapdoodle in, then you shake it all about…”

Yeah, I had a silly little flapdoodle moment there.  Go have one of your own.  :)
