Word For The Day, Friday, 3/21/03
3/21/03

Posted on 03/21/2003 1:42:33 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....


Teacher's note:
I know some of you wonder why I post WFTD just after midnight every night. The reason is simple. I am on the west coast. If I post it when I get up, it would be late morning for many of you, and I do not want any of you to think that I forgot to post it. Also, I know many of you are irked by the fact that you do not always receive a grade and critique, or that the critique is non-existent. Once again, by the time I get up and get around to this thread, it is upwards of 200 posts. My apologies if any of you are annoyed beyond belief.

supposititious\suh-poz-uh-TISH-uhs\, adjective:

1. Fraudulently substituted for something else; not being what is purports to be; not genuine; spurious; counterfeit.
2. Hypothetical; supposed.

Etymology: Supposititious is from Latin suppositicius, from suppositus, past participle of supponere, "to put under, to substitute," from sub-, "under" + ponere, "to put." It is related to suppose.

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

That's funny Argh. (You might have noticed your alter-ego inspired my tagline)

What do you think of your quebec scum hockey fans who booed the American National Anthem in the game against the NY Islanders the other day? I will not boo the singing of "Oh Canada", but if I attend a sporting event here in Dallas featuring a Canadian team I will be awfully tempted to sit down during the Canadian anthem. I guess I shouldn't diss the whole country over the actions of a few hooligans however.

What can I say, Quebecois can be awfully childish. I remember a Montreal Machine game back in the early 90's in the World League of American Football (which has now shrunk down to NFL Europe or whatever it's called). Anyway, Canada was going through our Meech Lake agonies (WAY too long a story to tell here). The bottom line of it was, Quebec was all insulted by some national referendum that seemed to (but didn't really) insult Quebec. The hilarious thing was, Quebec (barely) voted against it too! Anyway, the young hotheads were angry, so at that week's Machine game they politely applauded the American anthem and booed the Canadian one like crazy! The Machine never had anthems performed again during the rest of their (brief) history. I lived in Montreal for 28 years, and love the city, but the French part of the population has a large percentage of very childish people. Canadiens' fans used to have more class, but not anymore, I guess.

Ping!

Pong!

Ping!

Pong ....

Oh wait. We can't keep going on like this.

( Xsex doesn't get it. )

If the war started on Friday the 13th, would the democrats also complain about George W. being supposititious about protecting America's interests?

Gas prices are getting so high in Texas that women are starting to carpool to run over their cheating husbands.

I saw a replay of the booing idiocy in Montreal the other night. For what it's worth, it appeared at least half of the crowd did a good job of trying to clap and cheer over the booers. The American goalie for the Islanders appeared to appreciate the effort.

Clinton joke I found on an old thread:

Hillary is lying in bed wide-eyed one night, and starts poking Bill in the back. "Wake up," she says.
Bill just turns over and groans. Again, she pokes him the back and says, "Bill, wake up!"
"What do you want?" he grunts in a sleepy voice.
"I'm going to the bathroom," she says.
"You woke me up just to tell me you're going to the bathroom?"
"No," Hillary says. "I want you to save my place."

If I may be permitted to state the painfully obvious:

CBS/ABC/NBC/CNN/MSNBC/PBS are virtually useless as a source of factual information regarding Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Meanwhile, KY spanks Utah by 20 points.
