PRONUNCIATION: (MAF-ik)


MEANING: verb intr.: To celebrate boisterously.


ETYMOLOGY: Back formation from Mafeking (now Mafikeng), a town in
South Africa, where a British garrison was besieged for 217 days
during the Boer War. Lifting of the siege on May 17, 1900 sparked
wild celebrations in London.


USAGE: "Colin Milburn had a glazed look of stupefaction in his
unseeing eyes and was completely oblivious to the mafficking going
all around him in the wake of England's recently completed Test
victory over Australia."
Frank Tyson; Driven by Natural Gifts; Sportstar (Chennai, India);
Jul 4, 2009.

"Last year, about 300 people who like comics showed up ... It was
a successful day of mingling, marketing, and mafficking."
Wayne Alan Brenner; Giant-Sized Annual; The Austin Chronicle
(Texas); Mar 3, 2006.


A THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Gods are fragile things; they may be killed by a
whiff of science or a dose of common sense. -Chapman Cohen, author
and lecturer (1868-1954)
