The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Honestly, i was going to try for some highbrow homework, possibly dealing with the Newsweek Koran scandal, but i got pinged to another Jilted Jenny story, and you can't beat the runaway bugeyed bride for an example of licentiousness. The best has to be this quote from her former paramour:
"I would have turned her ass in, no question," former flame Todd Kendrick told The Post.
Nice guy that Todd...well i guess he had attributes other than gentlemanliness and chivarly, which attracted her....

yeah, it's early. get over it and stop whining and get to class.
you GO, hd ; )
from what they say on that thread, I wonder if that dude's quote was chopped short; they may have cut "...side-out"
based on the general licentiousness of that thread, I mean
well that was back in the day. she is a born again virgin, supposedly.
and hey - I like being alone in here with you....
That'll be enough of all that Pole Dancing, thankyewverymuch.

Licentiousness - this word reminds me of the impeached 42 and all the garbage he tracked into the White House. It sums up his character in a nutshell.
My licentious license has been renewed.
I am continually aggravated by the licentiousness of liberals.
i never heard that definition, HD, i think you made it up. i was the real thing for long enough that i didn't need any five year period to pretend i was!
I didn't make it up; but it does fall into the nebulous category of "stuff I heard about once"
(Robt grumbles, "Who gave her a licensetowakeus up this early on Monday?")
Grrrr, y'all are up early.
After Bill Clintons licentious reign of terror on the White House, Hillary turned gay..
