Word For The Day, Monday, 2/11/13
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. harsh discordance of sound; dissonance: a cacophony of hoots, cackles, and wails. 2. a discordant and meaningless mixture of sounds: the cacophony produced by city traffic at midday. 3. Music. frequent use of discords of a harshness and relationship difficult to understand.
Etymology: 1650s, from Gk. kakophonia, from kakophonos "harsh sounding," from kakos "bad, evil" (see caco-) + phone "voice" (see fame). Related: Cacophonous.
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 have been caught up in the cacophony of speculation over Pope Benedict's resignation.

No pushing at the door please!
One’s thoughts turn to END TIMES about now...
"..snot nose kid got me in trouble by leaving one of those plastic piles on the living room carpet"
ha! i see what you did there.. ; ) A+++
Good morning. The so called storm of the century was over the next morning. We kept to our Saturday routine. This morning they were threatening “ice storm”....yeah, a few minutes of freezing rain without any car accidents. School buses were on time. The frozen tundra is just another day in paradise. I do feel bad for those who lost power, though. Too cold for that.
Sorry i didn’t see yours before posting mine.
Among the cacophony of Pope jokes, shock and news...Brett Baier said that the white smoke beats Ohio in picking a new Pope. I have to agree. Obama’s SOTU speech not the talk of the day, the Pope upstaged him.
The Left’s Cacophony of Lies Attempts to drown out the truth.
The cacophony over Pope Benedict’s resignation from liberal media commentators like Soledad O’Brien and Piers Morgan is intolerable!!!!
A+++ me too.
i find the nasty posts by FReepers about it more upsetting than those libtards. A+++
and THAT is the upside to this sad news! A+++
LOL re caca phoney! A+++
When Reagan spoke, I heard a symphony
From Obama, merely cacophony
Deflection and lies
His favorite disguise
For increasing his left-wing hegemony
like i said the rabid anti-Papists on FR are doing so as well. does not reflect well on their supposed Christianity. Guess their moms never taught them that if you can’t say something nice... SHUT THE HECK UP.
A+++ wouldn’t it be great if NO ONE watched the SOTU tomorrow PM?
