Word For The Day, Tuesday, 5/17/05
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".
turbid·ly adv. turbid·ness or tur·bidi·ty n.
1.Having sediment or foreign particles stirred up or suspended; muddy: turbid water.
2. Heavy, dark, or dense, as smoke or fog.
3. In a state of turmoil; muddled
Entymology: [Latin turbidus, disordered, from turba, turmoil, probably from Greek turb.]
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.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!
Here is my example with WFTD.
what laughably turbid thinking it takes for the Dems to blame the US NOT THE UN, for the oil for food scandal.

You forgot a meaning.
Oh, waite - that's "turgid." Sorry, morning problem - I still need coffee.
hope you solve your problem.
You say that to all the guys..... :-)
slappin' ya both !
Everything becomes easier with practice - except getting up early.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)
LonePalm, le Républicain du verre cassé (The Broken Glass Republican)
he said it!
oh for heaven's sake, what a whiner he is! A+++
As the immortal Bard once muttered at a grand estate auction: "Turbid, or not turbid, that is the question..."
nyuck, nyuck, nyuck ; ) A+++
as opaque as my creamed coffee,
swirls about the rationality
of organizing a society
and depends upon its enemies
to come hither
and be corrupted
into the likes of them
and replace their dwindling numbers.
Turbidity of thought
to think that this would work.
17 May 1875
The Kentucky Derby was run for the 1st time in Louisville's Churchill Downs race park. Aristides was the winner.
You didn't think I'd miss this one did you?
were you around for that, grimmy.... ? ; )
Yes, I went with your younger sister. 8-]
i cannot stop laughing.... at how juvenile we are...LOL!
The line between juvenile and senile is razor-thin.
i believe it.
Whoa! Great post!
Ooo, that sounds like the problem with New Europe to me.
would you like to fix your link, miss garden... ; ) ?
looks like FUN! A++++
Still waters run deep, so I'm told
but political waters are turbid
'cuz shallows pick up all the flotsam
with shouting about what some turd did*
They curse and they turn like a whirlwind
while stirring up hatred and ire
the fog of confusion well suits them
their mem'ries are short, like a liar's.
A deeper-cut channel of thinking
would render a river of blessing
the garbage could then begin sinking
just like Teddy's car, I am guessing.
(*yeah, yeah. Like it's easy to find a rhyme for turbid.)
It's really hard to get Jean out of turbed in the da morning, especially when she's prone to staying up past 2:00 in the am.
Then a nice long hiatus in Leavenworth would do him good.
I fixed it!
A+++++ there's always TURGID, for which patton so....pointedly....mistook this word...
Hillary's making turbid fer 'er bed back?
"Ewe", he grinned sheepishly.
A++++ excellent. Harry Reid is a punk@$$ed wimp. (i saw a bumper sticker this AM, calling Bush that, but c'mon, Harry is the poster child for a punk@$$ed wimp!)
Yes, you did...and I appreciate that. :-)
good one! loosh can certainly count dog treats!
Just for you, Grimmy! ;)
Sounds like you're channeling some sort of Cockney-Swedish ancestor there, Robert!
what are you thinking?!? You can't say "Swedish" around Robt., and CERTAINLY not 'Cockney' - you'll have no one to blame but yourself.......
Are you implying that, like Newsweak, I haven't given proper attention to the ramifications (ohhh! there's another!) of my words? Why, my sources are impeccable and my superior moral compass allows me to post with impugnity!
wow! they aren't just a rumor - thanks for the info!
