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.

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.
