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".
mundify \MUHN-duh-fahy\, verb
To purge or purify.
The cleric, fatigued and mumpish, scolded her, saying that a woman of her burdensome years should return home and mundify her morphewed sins.
-- Edward Dahlberg, The Olive of Minerva: Or, The Comedy of a Cuckold
Vigorous efforts to mundify old nasty habits should find priority as a substruction on which the edifice of the efforts of humanising the police should be built.
-- Praveen Kumar, Indian Police
Mundify is built from two Latin roots, mundi-, "to clean," and ficare, "to do."
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

Many northerners adopt all of their travels and vacations to a MonthlyFloridication over the frosty winter months.
(Yo teach! You gonna discount the grades of those who copied my homework before I could hand in it today?)
A for you Robert. What do you think of our new football coach? I don’t think they did a good job of notifying Sherman but he had to be suspicious with a 25-25 history and a horrible bowl record to boot.
If you get some produce infected with e coli, you will involuntarily mundify your system.
I think I may be immune, thanks to all the raw cookie dough I ate as a kid. A for you!
It works better as a cheer this way:
The love for mittens has got to go!
Good word there Robt! Nice to see you doing homework.
The Flyers have Bobby McFerren in goal now?
This Eagle got Mundified.
Yikes, I see knee/ankle surgery in someone’s future. A+ for you.

Love me an eastern European of any stripe, Even Jagr was looking pretty decent sans mullet.
Speaking of eastern Europeans, it’s hilarious whenever I mention loving Dan Baylsma, xsteen loves to say, need I remind you he’s fifteen yrs younger than you AND you’re married! LOL
And yes pedant, I know it’s bylsma.
We know you’re in love cause you tried using capital letters on his name!
Telling, isn’t it?
Honestly my girls accuse me of being a closet pens fan, I am forever suspect in my own house.

Another rainy day! We need the rain badly, but it is a tough trade for a lean-to-the-bone Christmas...
To mundify the Peoples’ house
After the Obamas have moved out
Will be like the Aegean stables
Of that there is no doubt
Hillary took place settings
And that was pretty crude-
But Michelle Antoinette
Just might steal fancy food
The computers will be trashed
All wiped of e-mails and such
To hide which Chicago mobsters
Had been staying in close touch
