Word For The Day, Tuesday, January 17, 2012
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".

Is Michelle an angry nebbie?
Here's Bong with his babe:
As Pixburgh as a filled uh flahrs!
(He was a real PITA ;)
Where did they find that many brunettes in Texas?
Good pick SD - saw it myself and it is a very good dark comedy. Plus I was very amused at the opening sequence
If they need more I’m willing to scout for them....
I don’t know how you have those actors in a movie and it totally flies under the radar. They must have had test audiences full of morons expecting a summer blockbuster superhero movie or something.
I was also happy that it was a 'dark comedy' that was actually funny. Some of the movies I've been seeing for a while were just plain dark, with the 'comedy' part thrown in there by artsy types who like to prove us dupas just don't get it.
Although for all my complaining, "Burke and Hare" was a pretty cool dark comedy I just saw last night.
I’ve just returned home from an appointment at my doctor’s and the nebby nurse practioner was really annoying.
My paternal grandmother lived and worked in Philly for a few years in the 1930’s-and imported her third (and last) husband from there to ranch with her family in south Texas. As a small child, I remember both of them using some of words I see in that tutorial-Ah swear ah thought it was a foreign language at the time, y’all...
The EPA and other nebby groups
Want to order all that you do
Because they have to be sure
Contracts go to those who renew
The fear of the unwashed masses
That the climate will get too warm-
Making glaciers melt and oceans rise
And cause such dreadful harm
Never mind if you look at history
There’s a different story told-
Humans didn’t advance or prosper
When the earth was icy and cold
I’ll look for it. I like Simon Pegg.
i can’t see photobucket at work, so I am unaffected. :-)
/most obscure reference I'll make today
Used to watch Dave Allen all the time. Back when UHF TV was truly independent.
I just saw that Paula Deen is going to promote a diabetes med, and that she has diabetes? If so, is that not the best example of a bad example ever-not to mention possibly creating customers for a product? Is her show going to be the next target of a frivolous lawsuit by some dumbass?
