badinage;

verb (used with object) 2. to banter with or tease (someone) playfully.

Etymology:1650–60; < French, equivalent to badin ( er ) to joke, trifle (verbal derivative of badin joker, banterer < Old Provençal: fool; bad ( ar ) to gape (< Vulgar Latin batāre; compare bay2 ) + -in < Latin -īnus -ine1 ) + -age -age

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

The majority of the political badinage today will be about the Obamatrocity of a speech last night. The laughline about it not being class warfare was particularly amusing.

Your badinagality implies that is not a word.

I've found the badinage that passes for questioning in the Issa hearings so far to be disheartening.

Ooh I love that Clapton song - “Badinage.” “Thinking ‘bout the times you rode in my car, thinking that we might have gone too far.”

Heard last night’s speech?

Yeah, we’re in a badinage for one more year - at least.

A+++ one does wish that the issue would gain traction and more forceful questioning might increase the chances.

No badinage there.

No. He shoots them.

Now we need to figure out where a democrat is on the spectrum between a member of his own party, and a wile. e. coyote.

I’m wearing a Yale sweatshirt today that one of the Prof’s recent graduates gave me. She just started Grad School at Yale in Theatre Costume Design. Probably the closest I’ll ever get to Ivy League.

Half of the 2011 graduates went to graduate school, most on full rides. 2 at Yale, 1 at Brown, 1 at NYU, 3 at American Conservatory in SF, 1 at Julliard, and a smattering at other programs. The other half got jobs. One of them is Assistant House Manager at The Globe in London, another is a Production Assistant for Disney. You can make money with a Theatre Degree if you’re talented and hardworking, I guess.

I’d love to know what was really said.

I was shocked when Drudge posted it but I could only see the finger wag.

Seeing the larger version where he’s outright grabbing him, to get in his face, is pretty bad ass.

The DOW down 185 is simply a bit of badinage about last night’s speech.

Some things get better with age; Dopey Joe Biden is just bad in age.

While politicians like to engage in good-natured, and sometimes not so good-natured badinage, anytime our idiot of a VP opens his mouth, you just know that a biden gaffe is imminent. biden

This word "raillery" from the definition is an added bonus to the actual word of the day!

Ok...badinage...

I enjoy listening to the badinage between El Rushbo and Snerdly, even though we only hear one side of the banter.

Barack has tried class warfare arbitrage
Steal from the makers
And give to the takers
He’s now a laughingstock target for badinage

OMG where has the badinage gone on FR? A thread yesterday about some old woman in the UK tatooing a do not resusitate order on her chest led to some newbie telling me I’ve been useless in this life and my daughter isn’t fit to be a nurse. We need a word about overblown egos and a new group called “right to zot idiots”

Wondering what the lib fallout is from the speech. Haven’t had time to sit still this AM to read it. The rain let up momentarily and i had to hit the grocery store before it started pouring again. Have you checked to make sure your house hasn’t floated off? or maybe MD isn’t getting as much rain as we are. They closed the Beltway for a bit at Alexandria last night and Fairfax Co. Charles Co. and i think Prince William had no school today. The creek down in our neighborhood flooded over and they closed it after i forded it to get to the groc store. Lucky there’s a back way in!

“I’d love to know what was really said.”

According to my secret sources it went like this:

Kerry: “First I grab the enemy by the arm like this and then I stick my finger in his nose like this”.
