Ok, so Slap and Dabble suck. But I love "slap-dab." It's like some old hillbilly language or maybe something Garrison Keillor would say in A Prairie Home Companion to precede the phrase "in the middle."

I can’t stand the mf Prairie Home Companion. I guess that was your (and my) original point.

once i played scrabble with an old woman who wouldn't let me play the word "belly" because she hated it so much.

yeah. visceral poetics.

My friends and I have a "Yes List" and a "No List" - words we love and words you're not allowed to say. Moist is on the No List.
