Those stupid names you come up with when you've forgotten the real word.

A wild beef is a cow!

Those stupid names you come up with when you've forgotten the real word.

A wild beef is a cow!

A wildbeef can be used to describe anything - the only real requirement is that it's a genuine attempt to describe something where the actual word has been momentarily forgotten. Deliberately silly descriptions of animals belong on /r/properanimalnames, please check them out if you enjoy reading posts on this sub!


POSTING GUIDELINES

  • Please post the 'wild beef' part of your post as the title, with the actual name in the post body.

  • OC is heavily encouraged - and please don't post stuff you've found elsewhere without checking the top posts first! As funny as it is, the Liquid Zoo has been posted a hundred million times already.

  • Wildbeefs are not malapropisms, misspellings, or typos. Those are better suited to /r/boneappletea or /r/boneappletypo. If your post would fit on those subs or any other language mix-up ones (like /r/engrish) then it probably doesn't belong here. The same goes for /r/puns - if it looks like a deliberate joke, it's not a wildbeef.

"Patterns." The word I am looking for is "patterns," but my brain keeps supplying "recipes" instead.

Machine Chair

I was slow getting to the door because I had to wait for the electric La-Z-Boy to go upright, so I said I was stuck in the machine chair.

Making the ice of tomorrow

Filling the ice cube trays. I could not think what this task was called when my husband asked what I was doing. "Filling the ice cube trays" completely left me, but "making the ice of tomorrow" came out with no problem. 🤣
