There's this guy at work that I see every now and then who is overly friendly and carries a man-purse everywhere he goes.  He works in a different department so usually I run into him on the elevator and at least 50% of the time when he sees me he says "Hey!  What's the good word?"

"What's the good word?"  I've never heard this greeting from anyone but him.  Usually I come back with "Fine here.  How about you?"

I really think one of these times I'm going to respond with "Perspicacious" and see what he does.

I've always though 'wanker' was a good word.  'Hinky' is a good one too.

I think a simple "shh" will do just fine. Just put your finger to your lips and tell him to zip it.

Had a pastor's son that said that all the time. He was from Iowa so maybe its a midwestern thing?

For reference, today's good word is invective.

Of course, the problem with that is that someone responding to his "What's the good word?" routine with some cute obscure word is just going to make his fucking day.  You're going to be Man-purse Boy's best friend for life.  And you'll have to come up with a new word every day after that.

The good word of the day is "sucker".

The good word is "Eat me".  Well, I guess that's two good words.  (then kick him in the jimmy - problem solved)

Klaatu barada nikto.


Although what I would do is go out and get one of those "word of the day" calendars.  Then, every day you see him, just rattle off whatever that day happens to be.

Ask How, Ask Now, Ask me

For some reason I try to throw a wrench in to my reply whenever someone asks me some form of "how's it going?"

Favorite one is; "Partly Cloudy with a high of 64, slight chance of Thunderstorms in the evening, with an ozone rating of purple." Always leaves folks puzzled.

I've heard a lot of rednecks use the "six, one half dozen or the other, it's all the same to me", and I can't quite tell if they are telling me how they are doing or whether they want some eggs or cookies.

Or for your particular question you could always reply that "whats" is not a word but actually a conjugation of two words meaning what is, so therefore whats, or even what, for that matter, can never be good but for the most part it is a word. Definitely with a real furrowed brow like it has bothered you for months, and then at the last possible moment smile and see if he gets it or just thinks you're creepy.


I dunno, I'd definitely try to come up with some just bordering on stupid with a sprinkle of wittiness and shake of serious tone.

C'mon.  It's like saying What's Up?

Just a little different.

Just keep doing what you're doing.  Unless it's your goal to piss off this guy.

Personally I like the word blargfadiddleknocken. 

And I am guessing it is somewhat of an old time saying, I have a few retired friends who all ask "What's the good word?".
