"boilsterous" for boisterous

yanogator brought up voiceterous yesterday, which is apparently already in the Database. I went looking for boysterous, which turns out to have been used to death already as a name for a “boy group” * shudder *, a racehorse, and a line of dolls for boys. I had more luck with this effervescent version:

Playing in a significant cross wind and in front of a boilsterous and raucous crowd on campus … ing_OU.htm

Installing moderates royal heads in those countries, and subsidize them with oil money was the most convenient way to put a lid on the potentially boilsterous situation. … htype=Next

For god’s sake they advertize the Mercedes ME55 AMG on TV now… mainstream sedan at… 465 hp!!! How many of those boilsterous idiots now think they can race a bike? … c41bac938f

A bragging lot of boilsterous lushes, but a fair tribe of talegivers and warriors.

many even veiw it as a sin,saying that silent unemotional reverance is more pleasing to God than loud boilsterous worship. … =firefox-a
