Word For The Day, Thurday, June 17, 2004
Thursday, June 17, 2004 | Slip 18

Posted on 06/17/2004 5:37:05 AM PDT by Slip18

In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of “word for the day”. Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the “word of the day”; in a sentence. The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-) Practice makes perfect.....post on....


Subbie Slip has her whip, handcuffs and legcuffs today. Haven’t checked my mood ring yet. Y’all behave yourselves, ya hear? Principal JimRob is still out of town. I expect the utmost respect on this thread today. The Mods have been overworked lately.

The rest of the stuff is locked up in my drawer.

Folderol, also Folderal noun:
Pronunciation: Pronounced about three different ways. Take your pick.
Etymology: Probably fr. Latin

1) Impractical, unnecessary or excessive trimming of finery or effects: pretty, but flimsy or useless ornament : something that is unnecessary: trifle, gewgaw
2) A nonessential talk or action: piffle, nonsense



TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Word For The Day

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

RULES: You must use the WFTD in a sentence for an A. For a + after your “A,” you must bring in a link of the word usage or something funny, a poem or some prose that will elucidate the word for us.

If you need to know how to link, come to the Subbie’s desk in the front of the class.

Make that folderol. Isn't that something I can add to laundry so it will fold itself?

Piffle is a good word, but I do believe it has been used on a prior instance. So we'll just folderol through it.

I had never seen nor heard of that word before. Saw it in a thread yesterday, and wrote it down for today.

Don't make me laugh. It hurts. I was up until 2:00 a.m. Another whole piffled story, so I'm working on less than three hours' sleep.

I think this chick would do well to change her name to folderol(def.2) instead of Esther.

"I brought a lot of chaos to people's lives, because of my selfish behavior."

The fodder of folderols everywhere.

Am I making sense? First A+ of the day.

RWJF is at again with their folderol..........now they are pushing (read funding) the AMA to get obesity declared a disease........

The Campaign To Make Obesity A 'Disease'

I hate to say I told you so..........but I told you so.

For years the smokers, the first major target of RWJF, warned that food was next, but no one listened to us.......

He's not feeling well. He heard me in here cussing. Came in to fix it for me so I can get back to bed.

Yes, Subbie cusses when she is tired. Don't tell anyone, okay? I'm as pure as the driven snow.

And then there was the peanut thread not more than two days ago. Pretty soon we'll be Stepford Wives *and* Husbands.

It hurts to laugh, CG.

And yes, the G's have it. Now is that the G Factor with halibut eyes, the folderol person at FNN?

Okay, my little kiddliewinks, I have got to get another one to two hours of sleep, otherwise I'll be piffling all morning.

Be good. Take care. Don't be doing too much folderoling this morning.

Promise I'll grade when I get back.

All the folderol we are about to see regarding Bill Clinton's book, 'My Lies' will be amusing to watch and entertaining. Have you heard that John Kerry is running for president and that he fought in Vietnam?
