Word For The Day, Tuesday, April 15, 2008
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".
fes·cen·nine [fes-uh-nahyn, -nin]
scurrilous; licentious; obscene: fescennine mockery
[Origin: 15951605; < L Fescennīnus of, belonging to Fescennia, a town in Etruria noted for jesting and scurrilous verse; see -ine1]
It’s a great day for hockey.
Isn’t that Huma’s middle name? Huma Fescennine Abedin?
Woo-hoo, it IS a great day to be a hockey fan! Wasn’t this wftd the name of the giant in The Princess Bride?
I saw your Predators go from despair to jubilation in about 15 seconds. That was pretty cool.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
We did it in 9 seconds and set a record for the play-offs and our franchise. It was jubilation, absolutely it was. My throat is still sore. We willed them to win.
As you wish...
Crosby set a franchise playoff record by scoring 12 seconds into the third, stunning the Senators and breaking open a tight 1-1 game. Within another 90 seconds, we added another and the rout was on.
First I see the words "Scurrilous, Licentious, and Obscene", and then I see the picture of these guys walking off Air Force One:
I think it sounds like a law firm.
I'm sure the fascinating, fescennine, former first lady will be joining them soon.
Lindsay Lohan says it's fine
To have ten buttons, but fescennine
A+ for you!
Is this a great time of year or what?
We pay quarterly. Don’t get me started on how much I think we’re overtaxed.
soother, i understand that mcnut is speaking at your alma mater this AM.
xshub had a full third of his salary withheld this year which is the only reason we are not having to pay and are getting a little bit back. it is fescinine what the gov’t extracts from us. did i spell that right? i guess if i had a SLAVE window going i could tell...
That’s just wrong. A 22-year-old woman who hasn’t borne children shouldn’t sag that much. She could hide a ham sammich under that fenarkey.
And you still have deductions for kids. I got nuttin’ but my house. Between the IRS, SS, Medicare, Indiana, the county income tax and property taxes, I’m quite fortunate to have my genitals left intact.
So you were the one directing fescennine mockery at the Red Wings last night!
I switched over after the (thoroughly enjoyable) Pens win over the Sens in time to catch the fun. It’s somewhat consoling that the “Mighty Wings” can look like Buffalo at times...
i LOVE that! that used to be my fave station when i lived at home! and when i drive up that way now, i swear they are playing those same songs they did back then! i always feel like i am in a time warp!
That there’s overabundance in all its glory.
xshub is convinced that Hasek is Detroit’s weak link, though. he said he was the best goalie in hockey 12 years ago, now, not so much.... he let in at least one cheezy goal. to the Pred’s great joy, but still, it was cheezy.
To the nation's chagrin,
she stood by her man.
She was the first lady,
one with a plan.
Obama is a lie,
not a uniter.
He understands not
the Republican voter.
He lives in his world,
we live at odds,
he calls us bitter,
with our guns and our Gods.
Two peas in a pod,
not worth their snot,
just fescennine suits
let's vote for them NOT!
Are you on the Pens bandwagon for the duration?
The booby expert speaks.
I have to agree.....
she should put on bra like Kathy Lee.
hubby and I both got a $200 rebate off our taxes for being volunteer firemen. ‘bout time we got something back for all our hard work. - just from the state, but it helps!
We’re so screwed that the IRS is going to eat up our stimulus rebate to pay what we owe. Plus I owe the state and local tax on my 401k funds I withdrew so I could live while I was out of work. Real nice. Local and state already taxed the money going in.
Slip to xsmommy: The United Health Association rated the healthy folks in Iowa as No. 7; the folks in California as 24; and the folks in Arizona as 34. Now if I add them up and divide them by three, I, personally, come in at 22.67.
Did I do that correctly?
Argh to Slip: I'm afraid not, you're still a 34. But you're aces with me, kiddo!
Kindly send ($U.S.) cash donations to:
Slip to Argh: I'm mailing you my donation now, along with my letter to Santa Claus.
Argh to Slip: I'll be contacting Mister Claus to ensure that you didn't accidentally mix up your envelopes.
Slip to Argh: You better check with Mrs. Claus first. I heard she held the purse strings in the family.
Argh to Slip: Of course, Santa's too masculine to own a purse But I have obviated the deleterious effects of your possible confusion by sending Mrs. Claus the following email:
Dear Mrs. Claus,
Kindly note that the lovely and talented Slip 18 of The Great State of Arizona (34th in healthiness), U.S.A. (you've heard of the U.S.A.? It's been in all the papers) has sent me copious amounts of $U.S. in a spontaneous display of her affection and respect for my intelligence, good taste, and suavity. There's probably a little lust thrown in there too, but I would advise her not to hold her breath because I don't go in for that cheap physical stuff. Anyhow, she appears to have accidentally sent this money at the same time as her annual letter to your esteemed husband, and, being female, she confused the envelopes. You are presumably in receipt of my cash, which I would appreciate your forwarding to me posthaste. I shall forward her letter to Mr. Claus likewise (Mrs. Claus, what the heck is a "Mr. Vibrator"?)
Thank you very much for your consideration. Give Rudolph a hug from his Uncle Arghie.
That should do it.
Slip to Argh: OMG! ROTFLMAO! It hurts, Arghie!
I miss Argh. I miss Robt. dang
Then aim better........ ;^)
I feel your pain in more ways than you know. My good mood was completely dissipated 10 minutes ago after finding out what we owe today. I am seriously down.
I’d like to see the Pens take it this year, but I do have to confess that “officially” (i.e. in the office pool) I have Detroit beating them in the SCF.
am I the ONLY one getting a hefty chunk of change back?
Yeah, head over heart when it comes to wagering, I’m afraid...
If Buffalo had somehow made it, I would’ve had them gone after the first round too.
Here’s another fun way the gov’t “helps.” Say you owe $15k on a credit card debt. If you negotiate and settle the account for $10k, the gov’t says “Hmm, you just made $5k in income, please send me a third.”
huh? that’s sick.
-but if you shop a sale and get an extra discount for using the same credit card...they don’t. govt is intruding too much here.
i am sorry to hear about both of your tax woes. while we are ok this year, we have had some very bad april 15ths in our past.
you know, i gotta say, jaromir jagr is still hot. even without that endearing mullet. i haven't seen him in a long time but saw him interviewed last week and he still makes my heart beat fast : )
i am not good at it. i have the latte, i was on the phone with xsteen, trying to deal with an email from the office about a case, and reading my freepmail and it was stressful for me. i can only really do one thing at a time, i am afraid. if i want to do anything well.
