Word For The Day, Monday, 4/12/10
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".
1 : to expurgate (as a book) by omitting or modifying parts considered vulgar 2 : to modify by abridging, simplifying, or distorting in style or content
183040; after Thomas Bowdler (17541825), English editor of an expurgated edition of Shakespeare
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.
They intend to bowdlerize the Constitution until they are voted out of ofc.
Review Thread One: Word For The Day, Thursday 11/14/02: Raffish (Be SURE to check out posts #92 and #111 on this thread!)
Review Thread Two: Word For The Day, Tuesday 1/14/03: Roister
Review Thread Three: Word For The Day, Tuesday 1/28/03: Obdurate
No pushing at the door please!
End of Spring break, back to the grind.
If some enterprising soul chose to Bowdlerize my book, it would then become a short story. Perhaps a paragraph.
CBS should have bowdlerized Tiger Woods’ on-air comments, or at least had a “graphic language” warning on the screen.
I could use a Spring Break. No such luck.
A++ yeah, i wonder if mr buddhist was able to connect the karmic dots with the outcome of this tourney.
yeah, bc you are too busy robbing people blind until obamacare stops you. ; )
Yup. Kicking little old ladies and premature babies out of the hospital. Better get busy. I’ve 2 pediatric bone marrow transplants to derail this morning.
have fun ; )
No sawing off feet or hacking out tonsils on the schedule?
Nope. I only deal with $100,000+ cases. I’ve got people who deal with the small stuff.
But enough about your love life. ;-)
I was hopping for Golden Tate at 29, but the Jets needed a third wideout, so this is good.
Golden Tate? Sounds like a venereal disease. Or a Chinese restaurant.
Here's the pic to go with your definition.
I can’t see the thread, so I have to guess - I’m the fifth person in to make a joke about how no one here is as well-qualified to teach the grind as you?
A++++++ that’s great!
A+++ he’s nuts sez sark ; )
no, sweet’ums you are the first : )
I <...> to <...> <...> <...> <...> bowdlerize <...> my <...>.
Sure, it’s tragic and all. But most decent-sized companies have policies against putting all of their key employees onto one airplane.
Well that makes me feel all better, now.
Sarko is right.
<> <> <> ++
it was not a good idea. doesn’t mean that the russkies were not behind it in some way.
oh that shirtless hunk o man, vlad... LOL!
Not nearly as great as a little advance notice that you were gracing the area with your presence would have been!
did you see my post on the last thread about me asking about 6-7 people about street parking in manhattan and being told by every single one of them “i don’t know, i don’t drive” ? unreal!
so do you think he had the Poles whacked?
did you not glean from my posts that it was IMPROMPTU? i posted it as we decided— that instead of going straight home, since my FIL wasn’t feeling well enough for us to descend on him, we decided to detour and go home via Manhattan, since xsfrosh hadn’t been there since she was in a stroller and the Twin Towers still stood.
Yes...I was ROR at your surprise at that....
Healthcare: the libs try to bowdlerize
Hoping that we won’t familiarize
Ourselves with the facts
Now Obama attacks
Believing his rhetoric will mesmerize
Yes, I saw that it was impromptu.
Presuming you exited via the Lincoln Tunnel, the very next exit on the Turnpike puts you 7 minutes from our house.
dunno, but i wouldn’t be surprised.
Barack and Michelle, deeply committed leftists who are deeply ashamed of what they believe to be the egregiously venal nature of American life, have decided to bowdlerize it through Obamacare and executive order before euthanizing it.
there was no interest, even REMOTE, in attempting to be helpful in any way. when we were on the steps of st patricks, a lady was asking me where something was, and i stood there and took the time to explain it to her. my family was laughing at me being the one to do it, but i said, well for heaven’s sake not another soul would bother to tell her, at least i told her what i could!
A+++ they are burning it, as if it were a flag.
What’s the motive?
we didn’t go in via a tunnel, we went over GW bridge and exited via the Holland Tunnel to go home. We spent the night at a doubletree hotel in Ft Lee. even though they wouldn’t permit the dogs to stay in the hotel, it had a covered garage and they at least had some grass to pee on. we were chatting with the waiter, a guy named FRANK, he was a dago, at dinner there and asking him questions etc about parking in the city etc. I mentioned something about the dogs not being allowed and he said, why didn’t you bring them in anyway, say it was medical. We roared! i said yeah, seeing eye cavaliers, that’s the ticket!
That’s the problem with the city. No Southerners to be polite and helpful.
i don’t know, de-stabilize the gov’t and maybe get in some russkypuppetwannabes?
i will talk to anyone anywhere. and it was only in retrospect that i realized that they were taken aback that i even approached them with a question in the first place, there was definitely a sense of ARE YOU TALKING TO ME? LOL!
A+++ hoisted on their own petards, those losers are.
