Hmm, my habit of reading fanfiction has added a new meaning to the word "ship", meaning a relationship between two characters and/or imagining such a fictional relationship (most often non-canon). As it happens, I'm now imagining a very different sort of constableship, picturing John Cleese in a policeman's uniform snogging another constable in the middle of the Lumberjack chorus.

He's a constableship, and that's okay,
He fines all night, and he sleeps all day,
He dreams of snogging coppers,
On the great constablecy!

Not one I found, but I just played a board where the highest scoring word record was FEDEXED.

Along with a couple others on the same board that I was surprised to score with:

BEDYE (another be- word!)
TENORIST (turns out it's someone who plays tenor sax... I kept thinking of the voice and wondering why -IST worked)

SOHO scored points. Has it actually turned into a word now?

I'm sure that if I came up with a pineapple-liver-gin cocktail, it would join the hall of fame of undrinkableness. Now if someone came with a competing hall of fame, maybe the plural would apply?

In any case, congrats on your word.

Clever! I guess the singular makes some sense but the plural is just absurd..........and I mean the word itself is absurd, not your thoughts on it........cheers.........

I still haven't managed to come up with a good sentence containing the plural, but you're right about the absurdity. Anyway, that just shows that it doesn't pay too much to think (in certain ways) when playing.
