cactussed

Nothing obvious on a Google book search. SemperBlotto (talk) 06:54, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Groups has this, this, and this. Here is a whole discussion. It's also spelled cactused, which may be the correct spelling (in Groups here, here, and here). "Cactused" shows up in Books here and here as a verb. The last seems to be a pretty good explanation of the origin of the term. In Groups, there's also this unambiguous use of the verb. We already have an adjective sense of cactus that goes with these. The main questions remaining are whether cactussed and cactused are adjectives in their own right vs. participles of the verb, and how we treat them as far as lemma, alt spellings, misspellings, etc. Chuck Entz (talk) 17:26, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
Cited and moved entry to cactused, since that spelling gets more hits on Google Books. Cloudcuckoolander (formerly Astral) (talk) 09:28, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
