Esther Newton’s 10 word Challenge

I forgot to post my take on Esther , Newton’s 10 word challenge. It’s time to put that right.

This week’s words are more fiendish than ever. Take a look at this:

  • Spider-Man
  • Catastrophic
  • Shrimp
  • Malodorous
  • Callipygian

Callipegian! It means ‘having well-shaped buttocks’, but the Thesaurus I generally use didn’t even have that word on it’s list! I dread to think what words Esther’s daughter will come up with next week. She’s the evil genius who selects the words, and she’s only 14! I suspect she has a bright future ahead of her.

Here’s my effort:


Spiderman’s callipygian form writhes.The malodorous shrimp churns within. Catastrophic!
