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?
