Word For The Day, Tuesday, Date7/17/12
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".
to cheat, deceive, or trick
Etymology: 156575; perhaps < Old North French coçonner to resell, verbal derivative of coçon retailer (< Latin coctiōnem, accusative of coctiō, cōciō dealer), influenced by Middle French cousin dupe, literally, cousin
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.
An old WHO song which is extremely apropos of today, we won't get cozened again!

No pushing at the door please!
up and at ‘em
you are indeed, sweet’ums : )
I don’t cotton, cousin, to the cozening by the dozen from BO
that’s a mouthful! A+++
My very attractive cozen married a rich guy and shot him when leaving the lawyer’s after making his will. It’s in the papers, so I win.
what do you win? A+++
Cozen me once, shame on you.
Cozen me twice, shame on me.
you are just shameful. A+++
Wll, ya know, he had iReggie there, getting all cozied up. Oops, the word was cozen...
Cozen: a group of lying witches?
had it been he and Reggie he wouldn’t have to be coaxed to perform for the kisscam!
Obama does nothing but cozen
Examples abound by the dozen
His minions aren’t curious
They ignore Fast & Furious
‘though the facts have the Tea Party buzzin’
a cozening coven? A+++
great one!! A++++
It won't be easy, since about 50% of the voters appear to be deaf, dumb, and blind. It is unclear whether any of them excel at pinball.
[you can’t be]...talking bout my generation... ; ) [how long can we keep the WHO anthology going?]
stooopid. i doubt the regular joe in the street seeing Batman has even heard of Bain.
Your cozening heart will make you weep
You’ll cry and cry and try to sleep
But sleep won’t come the whole night through
Your cozening heart will tell on you
a country song? of course! ; ) A+++
I think I’ve come down with a bad case of quadrophenia
You might say, non-Kissin’ Cozens
Obama’s Muslim duty is to cozen the Infidel population of the U.S. to Islam’s true intentions.
Is it still Monday or is Dave still on vacay?
Checking in late from CA. Obama cozened a whole generation into voting for him in 2008. The question is: will he be able to cozen them again in 2012 to insure a 2nd term. B**turd!
dave was on a plane home at 8:00 am, he asked me last week to cover for him today.
Rush just mentioned the bane/bain thing and batman.
does he think it’s going to be a factor? while there may be bad intent there on the part of the movie people, i can’t imagine it’s going to influence any potential romney voters. my 26 yo niece who is visiting said she doesn’t think there is remotely the enthusiasm to vote for him among her age group that there was the last time. and my 18 yo nephew’s girlfriend is from a union goon dem family in Warren. So he said to her, well you just won’t vote then right? and she said yeah, she wasn’t going to vote. : ) he considers that good enough. my brother’s kids are all on the right page. my niece is irked because her husband is blind, and the poll watcher teases her about her voting TWICE instead of casting her husband’s vote. she said he says it every time, and she probably could make an issue of it as being potentially harassing. What, she should not cast his vote for him but rather let some Ohio leftist pollwatcher cast his vote?
Bane is a Batman character from years ago. It has nothing to do with this election.
I’m home, safe and sound. Waiting for the A/C to bring the temps down.
We lost one goldfish during the trip. Still have the one from Memorial Day last year.
One of my favorite Who songs-I turn it way up-
The bomb throwing politics
That have now entered the race
Are happening because Obama
Has nothing else for the chase
He can’t run on the record
He’s used to cozen the dumb-
Some of those captive voters
Are no longer under his thumb
Now that they’ve seen the light
And left the bolshevik bus
They need to vote for sanity
And work like the rest of us
I know it is a coincidence.
And if anything he’s more of an occupy type.
In general there is a machine for the visually impared among the voting machines.
And if a poll worker does help, they are supposed to do it in pairs, one democrat and one republican. At least in Ohio and in theory, and for the most part in practice.
what a hearty soul he must be, that survivor!
when do you pick up River Phoenix...? ; )
They always try to get him to use the SPECIAL MACHINE, and his response is, sometime when i have TIME i will try your special machine, but right now i am trying to get to work, so can my wife just go in with me and help me cast it.
A+++ lord knows what the next few months will bring.
A+++ i sure hope not!
eeks he looks pretty pervy there.
We have to pick him up between 6-8 tonight.
It’s kind of an odd twist for the character. He wasn’t anything like that in the comic. He was simply a juiced-up brute with above-average intelligence who wanted to take out Batman and own the city. He executed an elaborate plot to wear Batman down over several weeks, then broke Batman’s back, paralyzing him.
He was eventually defeated by Batman’s hand-picked replacement, Jean-Paul Valley, aka Azrael, an hypnotically-trained assassin for a secret religious order. Azrael predictably went apeshit and started killing criminals, something Batman would never do, so the real Batman had to take him down once he healed up.
