Word For The Day, August 28, 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".
1. presumptuously conceited, overconfident, or proud
2. exaggerated, excessive, or arrogant
Please control your weening.
Are we to presume the word is spelled overweening?
Because you are a WEENIE
Because you are a WEENIE
I’m so tired of seeing the ODramas overweening mugs on the TV that I just can’t even watch the news anymore.
At least I’m not redundant. ;-)
Michael Bloomberg, the overweening Mayor of New York, has advanced his nanny-statism to promote rigorous prohibitions over soda pop, and over weaning, as he promotes breast milk over formula (and over Coca-Cola.)
The Soother is a lazy slacker who stole this word right out from under me!
She’s young and stupid. At least she’s not involved in serial auto accidents or getting arrested naked in a field.
Food fight! (chortling!)
You snooze you lose!
Yet!! She bought a house in Hyannis!
Making weeners from pork? O.K. or from beef, O.K. but then folks got real uppity about it and went for making weeners from feather meat like chicken and turkey which is plain unnatural and definitely overweening.
America is overdue for some weaning.
It won’t be her for one reason.
No one wants a repeat of 1976 where everyone walks out knowing they nominated the wrong candidate.
As soon as they were eating solid food, my kids and grandkids were overweening.
But the twin 4 year olds are at times not overwhining yet - like when their brother has a toy that he doesn’t want to share. Or when both want to play Roboblox on the same OC at the same time.
Anthony Weiner is an overweening twit.
What a ridic thought to have Sarah Palin as mystery speaker. Good grief. It’s probably W, he is the last winner we had.
Speaking of football, they said on the news last night that Penn State is going to cease playing “Sweet Caroline” at their football games.
My wife looked at me puzzled.
Hands — touching hands
the just don’t write em like that anymore.
oh that would be brilliant
Speaking of football, they said on the news last night that Penn State is going to cease playing Sweet Caroline at their football games.
They really should just disband the team, or the school, really.
or if NOT W. Maybe Trump is going to do a skit firing Obama?
No way. Maybe Dick Cheney, or Liz Cheney.
Maybe hologram Ronald Reagan.
OMG They have been playing that?
Mormon Tabernacle Choir?
Donnie and Marie Osmond?
I didn’t know they were. Pitt started doing it 4-5 years ago. The self-flagellating has got to stop.
RME. typical sarahbot response. i do not think she’s remotely schooled enough for that job, no matter that we have novice in there now, Sarah Palin is not the answer. Charisma and conservative ideals are not enough to be president. She has, as of yet, done nothing to improve her bonafides for that job.
Too big to fail. Too much money tied up into conference schedules and TV and the local economy, too.
Nixon’s head a la Futurama.
since when did sweet caroline become a theme song for all sports teams though? i think it’s stupid.
I think Sarah knows what she is good at, and she is doing it. She has made a difference in smaller races around the country and she is in AZ doing just that. Good for her. She, also, promotes herself into a career. Good for her, it’s the American way. President? No way, she had her shot and failed.
the preeminent break up song!
A weenie tweety or a tweety weenie. Works either way.
It came out of Boston, apparently. It’s campy. It’s so gay it’s wrapped around the other side and ceased being gay.
i think she knows what’s shes good at also. but her acolytes on FR will never stop being breathless at the thought of her as president. i know i am merciless when it comes to palin, but it’s truly those same acolytes which have made me feel this way about her. it’s a cult of personality every bit as as pronounced as those for obamabots for obama. they lose all perspective when it comes to the reality of her limitations.
Rush would be a great surprise speaker. And I’m going to take up for Taylor, who was raised right and is a good kid who just happens to be an emotional girl who falls hard when she falls for someone. It’s not the first time. She dresses modestly and does a lot of charity work under the radar. Overall, she’s a good role model for young girls unlike the others out there in the limelight.
Actually the ultimate surprise speaker is Obama's brother: George Obama.
Overweening is like overpreening, only wussier.
