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.
[From Latin lgubris, from lgre, to mourn.]
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.

Yea, make me laugh today, I need one.
Lugubrious faces surround me since yesterday’s ObamaCare dicision.
You know, I was thinking about that new Velveeta Queso Blanco.
This has to be the first time in history that someone has made something more ethnic by making it whiter.
I was going to call you an early bird, but then I remembered I overslept. It is a bright and sunny morning today. Starting to distract me from my misery.
So a baloney sandwich walks into a bar. The bartender immediately yells at him, while jerking a thumb over his back towards a sign on the wall: “Hey - can’t you read??? We don’t serve food here!”
“Bright and sunny” is one way to put it. It was 80 degrees by 8 o’clock. Yesterday was 95. Today won’t be as hot, but it will be more humid, so it’s going to be a good day to work inside.
I’m sorry, I will try to lighten up. A+++
Velveeta? What’s that? Haven’t bought that in years.
His befuddled mind fell prey to the liberals? That’s a theory. I say the man is a pompous traitor to rule like that. A+++
When the lugubrious meets the loquacious, the mournful joins the mouthy, you can be sure Lugy Beer is the house favorite! You just can't keep a good beer down.
I think he’s blackmailed but I wanted to give him the health out instead of speculating that he might be living on the down low.
Thankfully it can be eaten right from the jar.
You are Adorbs.
The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States does not ALLOW himself to be blackmailed. Epic fail on his part if that is the case. I would spit on him, if so. If his mind is so impaired from medication, he needs to retire. I still spit on him for that.
Ok, I smiled a little.
It’s not just you — it’s everybody. But, I offer this AM’s parody video from the Heartland (from Fox & Friends)to lighten your mood: http://news.discovery.com/human/discovery-news-gotta-see-videos-120628.htmld
If these young farmers are anything like the ones around here, they’ll be voting Republican in November.
The 3 brothers are from Kansas and this film was shot by their 11 year old sister. I predict that they will be inundated with notes and Tweets from girls all ver the country.
In shirts and ties, they were handsome, humble, and charming on this morning’s show.
