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.

Practice makes perfect.....post on....
when will they turn the firehose on the lot of them? has to be chilly enough now to have good enough effect! A++++ Flush the park clean of the filth, literal and figurative.
I wasn’t alone, we all screamed at her to fix her hair. Why doesn’t she just go to wigs? She could look good every day then. Gees. O has an eye for the women...LOL. MO looks better than Hill these days, which isn’t saying much.
i have a sugar high from all the eclats, i mean eclairs!
No, I am afraid not.
She looks like a washed up old washerwoman. Maybe she needs her presidential aspirations pumped to get her to care about her appearance again. the GUFFAWING about the death of Quaddafi was also kind of unattractive [we came, we saw, he died, YUCK, YUCK, YUCK]
she cares about her appearance! she just plays for the other team and has a differing idea of that “hot” look.
i do not believe that the flat to the skull look is attractive on any planet or playing for ANY team!
Imagine if Bush had said it.

Here’s that Serbophobic and muslim-kissing witch Hillary supporting that “gay” “spirit day”, and talking about fighting “bigotry and hatred”:
The gaysbians already have a whole MONTH—June, which they don’t deserve, either. (Serbian Vidovdan is June 28th on the civil calendar). Now they get an extra day on October 20, too? The gaysbians have ALWAYS had Halloween—let them just keep that and give us all back the rest.
I hope that we can dispatch the obamaites and the clintonites with great eclat in 2012, and end all the madness forever!!!!
Post #31 (and a chocolate “eclat”) is for you, too!!!!
A certain degree of eclat is due to the guy that put a bullet into Kadafi (who has not yet made an appearance that I’ve seen with @OsamaInHell), but he unfortunately aided in Libya’s headlong rush to Sharia law :(
A+++ can’t be soon enough.
thanks, one can never have too many chocolate eclats!
With raised-cleat slides and other feats of great eclat, the annual Halloween Classic is still underway...
A+++ i didn’t see @osamainhell reporting on seeing Moe, but he did mention something about William Safire yesterday which i thought was odd! but i did see @moeqaddafi HIMSELF make reference to being asked by Lucifer to bend over, you may want to check him out. He’s been discussing the other inhabitants down there...
“Exlax!” he exclaimed as the laxative showed its brilliant success.
