Word For The Day, January 15, 2013
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".

[ 162535; < Latin fatuus silly, foolish, idiotic; see -ous ]
What did you call us???
The useful idiots who elected this stinking Marxist as POTUS cling bitterly to the fatuous hope that he will act with integrity.
Congratulations! Your husband made the funny pages.
OMG he did! that is priceless!
Yes, he was “the fat one.”
i am SLIGHTLY better at boybands on Songpop than i am on Hairbands. i SUCK at hairbands, they ALL sound alike to me—none of the songs really stick out to me, so i am not even capable of LEARNING them— Tesla, Whitesnake, Poison, etc. What was i doing then that i don’t know them? wasn’t it the 80s? I know other 80s music.
Yes, the 80s. Boy bands were, as they are now, pre-packaged pap for preteen girls.
Weren’t you busy with having kids then? Tmight excuse you not being as in tune with the music as someone who was in high school and college then.
Here’s a hint for identifying Tesla: if you feel the overwhelming urge to give the singer a throat lozenge, it’s Tesla.
80-83 was law school, got married in 85, xsteen born 1988. i associate New Wave music with law school. Childbearing years was 88-94, so i missed more the grunge era and the 90s.
what songs are associated with each of those bands? nothing comes to mind for any of them for me.
Tesla’s most famous ballad
A little single entendre from Whitesnake.
