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.
[Perhaps Middle English *elriche : Old English el-, strange, other; see al-1 in Indo-European roots + Old English rce, realm; see reg- in Indo-European roots.]
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....

Class is in session. NO dog ate my homework as an excuse today, it’s a president eats dog kinda day.
“its a president eats dog kinda day”
made my day. thanks
Let BO be warned...”after the election I will have more flexibility”...run BO run! @jimgeraghty
“Eldrich” is the kind of husband a bimbo looks for.
Wasn’t Eldrich the fat Blues Brother?
BTW, I could give a rat’s pitootie that Obama ate dog in a country where it was culturally acceptable. I eat veal, tried the foi gras last summer in France, and wear fur. Unless he beat it to death first, I don’t care. Romney is still a douchebag for strapping the dog to the roof....and even stupider (yes, I said stupider) for bragging about it. And nothing having anything to do with dogs should matter in this election. It is the economy, Stupid(er). Why was Newt the only one to remember that message?
(disclaimer: the dog recipes being tweeted are HYSTERICAL)
you mean Elwood?
No, but you wouldn’t be the first woman to substitute “rich” for “wood.”
oh, I think the whole matter highlights that O never had a normal AMERICAN childhood like the rest of us. never stood each morning to salute the flag....dogs were food, not beloved pets. yes, it matters. how much? just another drop in the bucket.
There is something very, very wrong about Obama, a nearly imperceptible detachment from reality that emanates from within his soulless existence. His left-wing, liberal extremism, more mental disorder than mere eldritch sickness.
Liberals are petty and eldritch
Hating Mitt Romney, “He smelled rich!”
But for Nancy and Teddy
The voters were ready
Loved AlGore and Kerry who dwelled rich
Oh, I knew it was Elwood, my 10 year old can recite his whole list of excuses to Carrie Fisher...”IT WASN’T MY FAULT!”
And yes, I agree that BHO does not have an American background. He outrages me on so many things, that I just cannot get worked up about his love of collie-flower (just read that and howled).
LMAO with the Kennedy’s their being rich made them even more venerable....with Romney he’s a dirty capitalist. Can’t win. A++++
Eldritch Cleaver was the Beaver’s cousin.
The oceans began to recede and revealed the abnormal, non-Euclidian geometry of Cthicago and its gibbering, loathsome denizens—we had encountered the Eldritch Obama Nation.
Have you tried ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B- in Apt 23”?
I watched the first 2 episodes on Hulu the other day and it was actually pretty good. Quite demented.
The title character loves to befriend and torment fresh-faced newcomers to the city, stealing their money before sending them packing back home to Iowa or wherever. Oh, and James Van der Beek plays himself as one of her friends. Can’t quite break away from the “Dawson” thing.
Episode 2 airs tonight and it’s got some twists, to say the least.
I stayed up too late last night howling over those recipes. I am still laughing this morning. Care for some German Shepard Pie?
abomination, obamanation.....same diff. A+++
I SAW that.....couldn’t stop laughing.
He was the Black Sheep of the family!
Tonight’s episode is really good. The show is fast paced and twisty-turny. I don’t know how long they can keep it fresh, but so far so good.
oh you think you are a laugh riot right there, don’t you? ; )
No, but I will have some Chow Chow Mein!
No, but I will have some Chow Chow Mein!
I did see the pilot The first one was pretty good - the previews made it appear the new roommate was going to be a doormat, but she fought back so it was pretty good. I will look for it when I have a free minute.
when the blonde sold all the B’s furniture I thought I would die laughing.
Yep, this is kinda earie for the nosey so to speak.
This elder itch comes up on a fella sitting around cogitatin’ on what he’s done in his whole life, things like being Honorary President of the Woodsman Association and a being a notary public too (except the second wife ran off with that Simms kid an took my notary stamp). Taking that stamp was plain hurtful.
Yep, a elder folk gets the itch to give back to the community, to do something for the less fortunate...so I went right out to the smoke house and got a pint of home brew. It’s earrie alright and killed off that itch complete.
How about some Chili Con Cairn for lunch?
I amuse myself. Others are free to join in.
A+++ Yep, gotta scratch those itches.
I feel like some Hound Cake.
It was a lot better than HBO’s hyped “Girls,” which was morose.
I have to admit I totally missed this story - so did he just mention it in an interview or something?
i liked it, not gonna lie ; )
someone found it in his autobiography, Lolo Soetero fed them weird foods over there apparently. so it’s in his own words that he ate dog, no one is making this up. It’s not a huge deal, but it does make for hilarity!
@iowahawkblog: George Washington: chopped down cherry tree. Barack Obama: chowed down on bark.
Lolo couldn’t afford the prime cuts, cause Obama reported the dog meat as “tough.”
Romney takes his dog on vacation, Obama takes his dog to the butcher.
