Word For The Day, Thursday 11/14/02
The Verbivores | 11/14/02 | Mistress Bella

Posted on 11/14/2002 7:44:58 AM PST by Bella_Bru

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....


raffish \RAF-ish\, adjective:

1. Characterized by or suggestive of flashy vulgarity, crudeness, or rowdiness; tawdry.
2. Marked by a carefree unconventionality or disreputableness; rakish.

Etymology: Raffish derives from the noun raff (chiefly used in the compound or duplicate, riffraff), meaning "people of a low reputation."

Good Morning, riffraff!

I was here in plenty of time for a change, and there was NO ONE to talk with! Then, I go to work, and everyone shows up -- these are the kind of things that can give a guy a complex.

Sorry, Lone, I can't do that because I'm stuck back here in 1962 and somebody keeps playing The Locomotion over and over and over...

By the way, did you see the reference to Broken Glass Republicans on Lucianne the other day just after the election?

No I didn't. The link was to Lucianne.com and not directly to the article. It was gone by the time I got back from vacation.

I guess raffishness would be a good word for it, xs. Tucson is about as liberal of a city as San Francisco.

The reference was in Lucianne's description of the article, I don't remember it being in the article itself. Something along the lines of "The Broken Glass Republicans have done their jobs well" or something like that. I guess I should have copied it onto our thread for you, but I didn't realize you were gone. Oh, well.

I'm surprised hobbes, W, CJ, Robt. et all aren't razzing you about this. Too obvious, I guess.
