The Official KTRU Silly Words 1982-1984

These are the official Silly Words as recorded by KTRU Silly Words Director John "Grungy" Gladu from 1982 to 1984. They are reproduced here as they were presented over the course of two years on the backs of five Rice Radio Folios and transcribed by Glenn Knickerbocker. Silly words which may have been produced in late-night Scrabble games, such as, possibly, QWJXHZK (see AUAOAIA), and even those that were commonly used, such as ROODFUN (see NEMIGU and BLEGSQUA), but did not appear in the official reports of the Silly Words Director, are not recorded here. Exact dates of appearance of these five sheets of paper or any entries on them are, conveniently, forgotten.
