Gerry: Kia ora!
Kia ora and welcome to another week of Words with Walter where I hit up Walter with a complicated word and he has to try and figure it out!
This week “Fracas” (pronounced Fra-kah). A Fracas is a noisy, disorderly disturbance or fight.
G – Alright Walt, today’s word is Fracas. What do you think it means?
W – Fracas… *exhale*. To me this sounds like a cheese. Fracas Cheese. It’s a French Cheese. Fracas. A French cheese, a bit mouldy, similar to blue vein cheese and it’s eaten with plums. And it’s a delicacy and yep. *He thinks for a bit* It can be eaten with snails and frogs as well.
G – Are you saying that because you think it’s French?
W – Yep. And the packaging has a French flag on it. Either that or it means like, swag. Like that guy is Fracas. It’s a fancy way of saying swag. Like when someone steps out of a fancy car and you’re like ‘Far out, that guy’s got Fracas’. Like James Bond bro, he’s got Fracas.
G - Final answer?
W – That’s what I think it means, either Cheese or Swag. Spelt F-R-A-K-A-R.
G – Do you want to know what it means?
W – Yep.
G – A fracas is noisy, disorderly disturbance or fight.
W – So like an aggravated sound? Hahahaha, I think I said last week’s word was a cheese too!
G – I think you just really like cheese!
W – Hard out, I do bro!
So there you have it – Words with Walt. If you have a complicated word you want Walt to figure out, hit me up!
Until next time, Gerry
