I use the word “wonky” occasionally. I heard someone on TV use it the other day, and my friend wondered what it meant. Even though he supposedly reads my blog, he had never heard it.

I don’t know if there is a real definition for it, and I don’t feel like looking it up. When I use it, I mean “off kilter” or “messed up”, or whatever… something like that.

As I was thinking about this, I started rhyming the word. Then I started thinking of pictures. The following is the result….

    Wonky is a good word. I agree that it means ‘off kilter’.

    I love “shut up Honky”. I could hear it ringing in my ears as I read it. Thank you for my moment of joy.

    Actually, I think I’m going to start saying this in my day-to-day life.

    I could see George Jefferson saying, to Tom Willis:
    “Shut up, you wonky cronky honkey donkey!”.
    And then the audience cracks up and laughs and claps because the small little black guy just insulted a bigger white guy and made in look like a moron in front of a national TV viewing audience. Yes, I miss that show, for sure.

    I’m sorry. “made HIM look like a moron”, not “made IN look like a moron”.

    I loves me some George Jefferson!

    I think wonky means about the same thing as hinky. And then you could do hinky, hunky, hanky and still wind up with honky. LOL!

    what about someone hitting someone the head and call it “bonky”??

    “wonky”, bTW, is chiefly british slang– Roald dahl was fond of it.

    Amy – This is a cross-blog comment.
    I believe that we are in fact the same person, except that I have brown & silver hair. However, I do have the child issued crows feet & laugh lines.
    I use the word Wonky ALL the time and will validate that it means off kilter.
    I feel compelled to end my prayers with “God bless all my friends” just in case I forgot one of them. I wouldn’t want to feel responsible if something happened to them.
    I really like you.
    The End.

    Flannery.. I hope you do use it day to day. I think we need to bring it back.

    I actually did think about “bonky”, Big Orange, but thought it might be hard to find in a picture.

    Cheryl… freaky.

    Dick… freaky.
