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”.

Sui Generis

    Being the only example of its kind; unique.

[Latin su generis : su, of its own + generis, genitive of genus, kind.]

The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.

The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

Tom Hanks recent racist incident is not sui generis of the left. As a matter of fact, it is ubiquitous.

Sui generis - asking for a lot of money in a lawsuit.

That 17min lap dance he performed on theO sure shows his perverted political desires. I love that he got caught with the black face schtick. Perfect. A++

Sui Generis.

Suuuu wheee! That we understand is the call to supper but generous? No sui generis round here, it's root hog or die.

Here at the garage over our Breakfast Bud we've decided this is probably a French word and we refuse to use it. Time for the Dessert Bud so I hafta go.

His comments during the “blackface shtick” were even worse than reported! The video is short and VERY telling.

Looks like it’s another lost weekend......me and Jim Beam.....oh, those people with three pluses know the warmth of the sun of success while I shiver in the cold, empty darkness of only two pluses.....why oh why couldn’t your fingers have held down the shift key for one more second and typed another plus......I see the three plus people driving by in their Ferraris.....the sun playing off their perfectly styled hair.....laughing and listening to The Captain And Tennille.....I sit eating cold gruel and dreaming of the life of a Three Pluser......cruel world.....

Did you see this giant boulder that rolled into a guy's house in Athens, OH the other night?

He heard a thump and the power went out and he figured it was storm related, so he went to bed.

Firemen woke him up to see if he realized what had happened.

xs checked in before her battery died to tell me she was in a cab in Boston and told the cabbie she liked the Bruins’ Tim Thomas.

“Even though he didn’t go to the White House?”

“BECAUSE he didn’t!”

We are enjoying Boston but that was def my highlight! The cabbie was nice and joking, but I took him aback by saying that! Typical lib, thinking everyone else is like-minded! We got out of the cab and xsjr and xshub were congratulating me for that! Xsboy got here this afternoon and we will sightsee some more before tomorrow nights game. We saw a fair amount today.
Last night’s game was spectacular! Luckily we were in a heavily SU section and xshub had other loons around during the game. We will see how many buckeyes are here. Last night was very very heavy orange presence at the garden.

The loss was a major bummer. I watched in disbelief. At least you are enjoying the sightseeing and having your family all together.
