bammington birdie

bammington \'bam-ing-tun\ n - A court game played with light long-handled rackets and a shuttlecock volleyed over a net; "Susan's some-good at bammington." Outside of the region, this sport is known as "badminton." It is worth mentioning here that Carleton County residents cannot say the word "shuttlecock" without laughing and/or blushing: the preferred term is "birdie." See also: goldie. NEXT»
