Word For The Day, Day, Date
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".

Prone to outbursts of temper; easily angered. 2.Characterized by or resulting from anger. 3: quickly aroused to anger; "a hotheaded commander" [syn: choleric, hotheaded, hot-tempered, quick-tempered, short, short-tempered] 4: characterized by anger; "a choleric outburst"; "an irascible response" [syn: choleric]
Etymology: Middle English, from Old French, from Late Latin rscibilis, from Latin rsc, to be angry, from ra, anger. See eis- in Indo-European Roots.]
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....

Old Teddy is so irascible,
A demeanor deemed impassable,
From his quivering chin,
All too well soaked in gin,
Blows a stream of vile gas, et al.
clever ending! A+++
My husband is a really laid back kind of guy, not one prone to be irascible - I have a feeling things are a bit different this morning. Since the school bus came hornblowing and screeching up the road abuot 3 minutes ago - I know must figure his absence is that he took Jax to school himself.
I've risen, I've shone, I've arrived to learn. Now what's this crud about no movie tonight?
Seen it all, done it all, can't remember most of it.
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!)

I ran short of soundalikes passable, so rather than being irascible, I decided to try the old catchbucket "et al"!
