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 for 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....

EOTW bouncing going on....
"Not yet, honey. She's out giving speeches about overweight kids."
WTH is Rock Sugar? freaky. those lips look collagen injected...and it’s a guy.
Today’s word makes me think of Bill Clinton’s nose, then it makes me wish for the days when he was president. This is bad!
Heck, I yearn for Hillary as president. I would still be complaining, but it’s better than being scared to death for our country.
The narcissistic ego of our Prez is brobdingnagian beyond belief!
Obama’s deficit: Brobdingnagian
Our grandkids: Left Holding the Bag-ian
Although Bill and Hill
Gave me nary a thrill
I’d prefer the old sag-ian hag-ian
A+ it IS indeedy!
A+++ ah, the good old days when the ecological spill of the day was all on a blue dress.
Not a knock on the thread, because I think it’s a great idea. But this isn’t a word, it’s an NPRism, the type of word liberals love to throw around to make themselves seem superior. Seriously, why is that any more of a word than, “Thatsnotamoonthatsaspacestationian?” If you mean, “huge,” say “huge.” If you mean huger than huge, say, “Obamaegonian.”
I like much. Brilliant, in fact, if you just came up with that! (although sagging hagian rhymes a tad better, no?)
Apparently, Peggy has still not been away from the scotch long enough to see what everyone else knew going in.
He Was Supposed to Be Competent????? What the hell was in his background to make such an assertion...
and from my smokebox buddy!
why aren’t they EMBARRASSED that they were stupid enough to be taken in when the rest of us weren’t. It’s as if someone gave them permission, all of a sudden, to be disillusioned with him.
is that Djou the new Hawaiian republican rep? OMG the look on her face should be slapped off of it. it’s as if she resents having to swear him in! and yes, she looks positively unkempt in that hideousity.

clever homework! did you see it when you were over there?
Indeed. They had some first editions of “A Modest Proposal” and “Gulliver’s Travels” on display as well.
I know, it’s downright comical.
You should see how quiet things are on the BarryO thread at TGG.COM...
The BushBashingBarryOCheerleaders over there barely come around, and when they do they try to stick to policy....
On another Note, the GuvILuv was on PBS last night taking calls and was AMAZING...Not just in the manner that he speaks Zero B.S., but his overall grasp of every and any issue, and ability to communicate it ON THE SPOT, is imho, unparalleled by any current officeholder.
you got to see it? how cool. great story teller.
Yes, in 2007 when I visited Dublin. I spent about an hour and a half in the Cathedral. Swift was the Dean there.
the guv I luv? I missed a tv appearance? dang.
very cool! what’s news from London these days? and Russia too, for that matter?
he is TO LOVE that’s for damn sure! every chubby ounce of him! LOL! i hope he will go far!
Actually the Prof is up in the Midlands, they only visited London. Her class went to York to see a play, and Monday are traveling to Stratford-on-Avon to see “Romeo and Juliet” at the Shakespeare playhouse in his birth town.
Good weather in Russia continues. St. Petersburg trip is this weekend, so I might get pics after.
they just showed him with that teacher on Fox.....luvTHEguv!
i’ve seen the clip. i wonder if any conservatives have found that teacher and humiliated her with her duplicity over her salary?
colleen’s dad is over there, as well as her older sister and the sister’s fiance and he has “rented a castle” for them for a week. i am imagining that it’s similar to going to somewhere like the Greenbriar, where there are other guests and organized activities and meals served in a bucolic setting. She will be coming home next week, so we will hear all about it.
reminds me of my mom and her sister...they lived across the street from each other while I was growing up. there was a pain in the butt neighbor near us who got a speeding ticket....the two of them and my cousin drew a $100 dollar bill, which was his fine, and put wings on it like it was flying....wiped off their finger prints and mailed it out to him.......they giggled like school girls....her neighbors should make up a phony pay check with her real salary, add it to a newspaper clip of her comments and mail them to her. it would be fitting. she is a joke.
I would think other teachers would. Now you have every person in NJ looking up teachers salaries.
Check this out.
Just like the tag line says!
don’t break your arm patting yourself on the back@!
major garret just broke the story of clinton being the one to go to sestak.....and we all know how trustworthy clinton is right? this story reeks.
The band named Brobdingnagian Bards had a tour stop at an Irish Pub in Killeen, Texas back in 2003 by the name of the Irish Dragoon.
Unfortunately, the pub closed in 2006.
martha mccallum loves the guv too apparentlY! LOL!
sounds like a great place!
sounds cool. A+
I saw him first! remember that.
Ha! the White House is throwing Slick Willy under the bus on the Sestak issue
just imagine him with tickle me massa in the shower.......yikes! the mental images of this midget maniac are nightmare material. did you see the pic of him wiping a tear at the wall? and the two poor guys who got arrested for heckling him? yeah, the guy leaves them panting in his wake. LOL
