Are you new to Neopets and don’t have the lingo down yet? Or are you in need of a refresher course? Either way, my dictionary will do the trick. Each term includes an example of how to use it, so you’ll be a natural in no time! The “most popular phrases” are also included with some words.

3-mod: Complete and utter evilness (see TNT)

Example:

“Dude, I’ve been working on these 3-mods for hours!”

“Why bother? Didn’t you hear Sloth’s ‘resistance is futile’ speech?”

Example:

“So what did you students do over the summer?”

“I pwned some faerie n00bs in the AC.”

Most popular phrases:

“We will Krawk you in this year’s AC!1!”

“Where are my AC prizes?”

Asparagus: Adam’s one weakness; a vegetable guarded with Adam’s life

Example:

“I wonder why Adam has his neomail blocked.”

“Probably too many people begging for his asparagus.”

“Or maybe people like you kept sending him other n00b mail.”

Avatars: Neoboard pictures created to drive you nuts

Example:

“Ack, I’ve spent 50k on the Lever of Doom but it still won’t give me the darn avatar!”

“Oh just admit it, the Rooligans pwn you.”

Rubbish Dump: An excuse for players of all ages to roll around in the trash; a very smelly location to visit

Well those are all of the words in my dictionary! I hope that you’re a little more Neopets-savvy after reading it.

Yay, my 10th article! Firstly, I would like to thank each one of my friends. You Kreludorks are just as strange as I am, which makes me feel at home. Next I would like to thank all of the readers out there, The Neopian Times, my neopets, their petpets, their petpetpets, Diet Neocola, the chicken I had for lunch... -gets carried off stage- Wait, I’m not done yet!
