Word For The Day, Monday, 9/17/12
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".
. light, bantering talk or writing. 2. a frivolous or flippant style of treating a subject.
Etymology: 1757, from Fr. persiflage, from persifler "to banter," from L. per- "through" + Fr. siffler "to whistle, hiss," from collateral form of L. sibilare "to hiss," possibly of imitative origin.
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.
I pray this is true. The absolutely ridiculous persiflage that goes on by the MSM in purporting to cover Obama makes my blood boil! how can they be permitted to get away with this?? yes, new media is covering it, but the great American unwashed still gets their news from the MSM, and it's an abomination!

No pushing at the door please!
I am beyond agitated about the media and what they are permitted to get away with. A CNN reporter on twitter, tweeted a link to an obama FUNDRAISING SITE. soliciting $ support for him!?!?!?!
i am headed to the Toyota dealer where i will be parked waiting for my highlander to be fixed. The driver side window is completely off track and will no longer close. It’s cold and supposed to be rainy this week so i have to sit there and wait til it’s done. They have free wifi though so i will be grading homework, don’t worry ; )
I just woke up and am listening to the persiflage on Fox and Friends.
Barack’s moronic entourage
Of left-wing press tries camouflage
“Everything ‘O’ is just groovy
They’re not mad at him, it’s the movie”
Just repartee and badinage
Analysis by persiflage
Mr Pants: You’ve really worked out your banter, haven’t you?
Edmund: No, not really. This is a different thing. It’s spontaneous and it’s called `wit’
I missed it but xshub said someone got one over on Gretchen. Posed as disillusioned obamabot.not on mediaite yet .
In between reprogramming pacemakers at the county home the guys from the garage engaged in some persiflage with the old folks and installed a combat video game in Squire Morris.
He bantered down the fire door and is thought to be living in a nearby woods with a concur (that’s a dog that’s been in prison).
The persiflage treatment of the death of our Ambassador as ‘just one of those things as he knew he was in a dangerous place’ irritates the hell out of me. No matter the Party in the WH, this is an Ambassador, and for him to be without protection at any time (allegations of no bullets in the Marines guns) shoudl demand a f***ing criminal investigation!
A++++ I can’t take it any more!!!!
R&B artist Percy Sledge didn't treat his soul-rendering compositions with persiflage...
My favorite of his songs is “When a Man Loves a Woman.”
My favorite of his songs is “When a Man Loves a Woman”...
Oh, wait, that’s Percy Sledge.
I swear we are living in an alternative reality. A+++
