So Part II of my LatVenture trilogy is complete, but since there are currently three up on the board, I'll wait a bit before sending that one out. To pass the time, a neologism:

For the past couple weeks, I've been kholp-jarzing quite a bit. Some people enjoy this quite a bit, while others have given me strange looks. I have kholp-jarzed for many years, but I had not done this thing for several months beforehand.

Define the verb "to kholp-jarz".

Does the verb consist of the combination of two actions, one being "to kholp" and the other being "to jarz"? or is one of them a noun? or could you simply not think of a word that sounded good without a hyphen?

Some people enjoy that you are kholp-jarzing, correct? Can anyone on the LTPF kholp-jarz? Do you enjoy it? Does it require a prop? Food or drink involved? Bodily functions? Can it be done in the: dark? Nude? Water? In free fall? In a car? On a train? In the rain? On a Spanish plain? For financial gain? By someone who's insane? By a person requiring a cane? Does it cause any pain? Can you kholp-jarz a drain? How about a gas main? Are people who kholp-jarz considered more than averagely vain? Can you kholp-jarz in a pile of grain? Or kholp-jarz a stain? If you kholp-jarzed while being robbed at gunpoint, would you be more likely to be slain? Can you feign kholp-jarzing? Would you?

Is one standing while doing this? Is it necessary to be standing? Can one do this while seated?
Is this action a reaction to something else that happens? Or is it unprompted by external influences?
Once a person begins to do this, how long do they typically continue...a few seconds? minutes? longer? does it depend on circumstances?

Which of these moves most while doing this...
head? arms? legs? hands? feet? torso? All of these move a lot during the action - I'm not sure which one is more so than the rest. Maybe "arms/hands".
Which moves the least? I'd guess the torso.

Do you catch leaves that fall from the trees? Yep!

**********SPOILER**********

To klohp-jarz is to catch, or attempt to catch, leaves falling from the trees. This action usually involves running around in a semi-crazed manner, and side effects may include looking like a fool and people laughing at you. But I don't care - I love it.

Nice solve, Potato, and good job to everyone who worked on it, especially Ixoye, who did a lot of the groundwork.

By the way, the title was simply an anagram of "neologism." It had no other meaning, although klohp-jarzing does make me smile.
