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".
ex·co·ri·ate; tr verb
1. To tear or wear off the skin of; abrade. See Synonyms at chafe. 2. To censure strongly; denounce: an editorial that excoriated the administration for its inaction.
v 1: express strong disapproval of; "We condemn the racism in South Africa"; "These ideas were reprobated" [syn: condemn, reprobate, decry, objurgate] 2: tear or wear off the skin or make sore by abrading; "This leash chafes the dog's neck" [syn: chafe]
[Middle English excoriaten, from Latin excorire, excorit- : ex-, ex- + corium, skin; see sker-1 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....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Nothing like reading something about the Hildebeast excoriating our President, to get one's blood boiling on a Monday AM

yes, as a matter of fact, class IS opening early today : )
In like Flynn.
Sadly, many on the left refuse to excoriate the perpetrators of 7/7.
I've been excoriating myself all weekend for screwing up the entire summer................
hey marteen, i was at Kennywood on Sat. It was so much fun : )
A++ you have to wonder WHAT, if anything, it would take to get them to excoriate the terrorist for their acts.
i skimmed some of yesterday's thread this AM, gabz, i am so sorry about your ankle. what a dang drag. you have to stop beating yourself up for it, though, there must have been a reason that God wanted you laid up this summer and not off doing everything you had planned.
75% of them would change their tune if it was their immediate family. The remainder are too brain-dead -- if you were to excoriate their Leftist "beliefs" you would see a vacuum.
i should have bought you the tshirt that had an arrow pointing downward and said that very thing... ; )
hi grimmy, didja miss me?
I am not so sure about that :) It's a shame I wasn't drunk, since God always looks out for little children and drunks :)
Alright - I'll bite.....what the heck is Kennywood?
It's changed from what I remember.
'Course, that was a loooong time ago.
That's hilarious.........and I can actually hearing her saying just that to the fat slob. Very Good.
Excoriating a liberal only gets you a pile of excretions.
Actually, two piles; the one you removed, and what you have left.
you were gone somewhere???
Rivalled only by the more old-fashioned Idlewild Park.
Dunno if Idlewild still has this old-time ride, but it was always one of my favorites.
A++ i would pay a large sum of $$ to hear her say that to him!
they must all be owned by the same company now, bc the billboards on the turnpike advertize Idlewild, Sandcastle and Kennywood all together.
Fury is a five year old excoriating Mommy or Daddy because she didn't get her way - especially when (a) ice cream, (b) candy, or (c) getting a pet are concerned!!
How is xsmommy this fine Monday a.m.?
we were there with xsbro and his fam, so a total of 10 of us. do you recall the Turnpike ride? it is the old fashioned cars on the track etc. Anyway, we were lined up there waiting our turn and a guy and his kids came up behind us and said "Yunz in LINE?" (intonation going up at the end of the sentence which is TRUE pittsburgh style, so much of the accent is the intonation!) well xskids and their cousins all burst out laughing bc they know Pittsburghese when they hear it.
lookalike fruits? the Pillsbury Doughboy is celebrating his 40th bday and he was at Kennywood and gave away t-shirts, so we could conceivably had 10 of us in Kennywood outfits.
Their party's planned obstruction
Just goes to show us that
No matter who is chosen it
Won't please a single 'rat
They want to have the supreme court
As liberal as can be
And dreaming up new "civil rights"
For every monstrosity
From marrying fruits and abortion
To excoriating the God-fearing way
They want to be the ones to make
The law what liberals say
disgusting visual that : ) A++
Thank you. Idlewild I've heard of, but had not heard of Kennywood.
that 5 yo needs a beating! ; ) good. hows bout you?
Kennywood was established in 1878, it is in the historic register.
"Datem, Dickem & Dunkem"
ROFLMAO! I haven't heard that one in a long time-my dad use to call fat Teddy's firm " Winem, Dinem, Dickem & Dunkem", too...
Chuckie Schumer writes the DNC Talking Points:
For Bush's Supreme Court, excoriate
Every right-winger Bush wants to nominate
'Specially those with a bent
Towards the Framers' intent
The more they adhere, then the more we hate
Ex-President Clinton exkerryated, "oops excoriated", Senator Kerry at the Aspen Institute for Idiotic Dimbulbs!
A++ and we know all that bc we heard it right from the Putzhead's own lips!
A+++ took the words right autta my mouth! ; )
Ah yes, I remember it well!
Anyway, we were lined up there waiting our turn and a guy and his kids came up behind us and said "Yunz in LINE?" (intonation going up at the end of the sentence which is TRUE pittsburgh style, so much of the accent is the intonation!) well xskids and their cousins all burst out laughing bc they know Pittsburghese when they hear it.
LOL @ that Jagoff.
A++ exkerryiated, excellent word!
remember that tunnel of love ride next to it? i can't recall what it used to be, but it was the kissy kissy ride, and they have turned it into some horror thing now, still a boat ride through though.
Instead of just begging for more money at Live 8, they should've spent their time excoriating the leaders of Zimbabwe and all the thugs associated with Mugabe.
A+++ excellent point. but what fun is that for those losers?
How do you beat a girl with such a beautiful pout??? ;-P
I'm pretty good. A little beat up from trying to separate a couple of idiots in a bar fight Friday night. I couldn't help but be involved - they almost knocked me off my feet when it started. Wrong place, wrong time kind of thing.
I wish I was as young as I used to be! LOL
Out west (and maybe nationally, for all I know), Six Flags appears to be the Corporate Conglomerate gobbling up management of all the amusement parks.
This guy gets on my nerves.
look at you trying to play bouncer! bet that was fun to see!!
extremely annoying jagoff.
