Word For The Day, Wednesday, 8/1/12
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".
lacking intelligence : stupid
Etymology: alteration of English dialect gaumless, from gaum attention, understanding (from Middle English gome, from Old Norse gaum, gaumr) + -less First Known Use: 1883
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.
The gormless had the Tea Party dead and buried, . To quote Gomer Pyle, SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE : )

No pushing at the door please!
hoping that Ti is getting a well deserved sleep in, for a change.
in before the ping?
The gormless response of the left to the Tea Party’s Victories is always amusing.
Obambi is gormless....and the GOPe are gruntled.
Barack’s foreign policy’s formless
“I’ll just talk” and the world will be stormless
No war and no threat
“I’m so cool; there’s no sweat”
So naïve, so corrupt, and so gormless
I read that as gorEless. Ok, same thing.
no, sweetums, but you tried ; )
A+++ they are so clueless.
that they are! A+++
The new archbishop is a Prop 8 proponent, and that is a very big deal in SF! A+++
love it! A++++
gormless Gore? totally! A+++
i am full o gorm ; )
already had my chickfila today. i googled to make sure of what time they opened since breakfast was going to be my only opportunity today, and was able to go thru the drive thru at 6 am. my entire family will each be eating at least one meal there today.
I’m told that the new Archbishop is stepping into a den of lions (San Fran) and needs our prayers in support for the job ahead.
Den of iniquity more like it! Dante’s inferno!
I did sleep in. Just woke up and ran down to post class. Thank you!
Bishop Troutperdaughter is out in Erie. Priest from Gbg is new bishop.
If it weren’t for Ceasar Augustus would today be the first of Sextember?
Baldrick: I’m a gormless idiot and I’ve never been invalided back to Blighty
Blackadder: that’s cause you never said “wubble”
Nice - all gams and gorm - ahhhhh
Old Gorm is dead and gone,
Left me here to sing his song,
Pretty little girl with the red dress on,
Old Gorm is dead and gone.
Amen to THAT!
A+++ that’s what lead to the #harryreidmaybeapederast on the twit yesterday. I don’t know but there are twit rumors and i presume it’s being investigated in the offchance that he is indeed a pederast.
It is easier to teach goats to surf than for Obambi to understand how a lemonade stand works....
Here are the ungormless goats surfing ....
Wow, he is articulate and awesome! We await the naming of our new Bishop, the liberal Bishop Clark is retiring. Clark got reprimanded by the Pope for allowing and attending same sex ceremonies being done by a Catholic priest in the diocese. That was many, many years ago now. I am hoping for someone like this Archbishop. A breath of fresh air is much needed in our happy slappy community.
Waking up to Blackadder is always welcome, thanks.
I was LMAO reading the tweets from @AceofSpadesHQ and @eriContraian were cracking me up with those rumors yesterday.
Well you can't be too careful these days and it is a very serious charge.
what clever goats! our president has no gorm. A+++
[riders on the gorm.....]
oh i hope you get someone good!
NOW I have an earworm for the day. LMAO “riders on the gorm..” is that JoeyB leading the pack?
What’s a pederast?
Shut the #@*+ up, Donny.
“In the beginning, the Media was gormless and void, and darkness was over the airwaves. And the spirit of EIB was hovering over the face of the radio dial. And EIB said, Let there be light, and there was light...”
I just LOVE our new jr pastor. I smile when I see him in the church as I walk in. The two priests rotate around the county churches, we never know who will be there when we arrive. I pray we get a devoted conservative Catholic as bishop. Most hope I have had in ages. (we will not mention the SCOTUS decision....or I may plunge into the depths of despair AGAIN)
I am busy doing my semiannual cleaning, purging and general spruce up. Stayed up till 2am to finish off a project. Will be at it all week. No kiddies this week. The mom is after me to watch them before and after school. Wants me to tutor the older one and supervise his homework. That is a sure fire way to make me the evil one. Debating that, cleaning and the Olympics have left me with no time for Twitter or news. Better ping me to notable things like the HRtwitter scandal. Another possible sandusky? I feel like I have been in another world all week.
AWESOME! Made me smile.
And from noon to three eastern, it was good.
Off to Chick fil A for lunch right now.
