Word For The Day, May 7, 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".
[Spang is an Americanism of uncertain origin. It first entered English in the 1830s. ]
1. What is this song talking about? I mean the chorus, not the verses.
2. Do you know any other songs on the same topic?
3. Do you need more cowbell?
Hopefully, tomorrow’s hearings will pull Obama and Hillary spang into the middle of the Benghazi brouhaha.
And how are you? We finally got rain after about 10 days without any.
Achy, breaky. I’ve got pains where there are no reasons for pains. The whole leg aches. Should move around more.
Anybody who tells you that this operation is “easy” never had it, or is lying. My best hope is that it is like childbirth — the mind lets you forget after a few months.
maybe it’s just me, but this word sounds dirty to me.
Did video kill the radio star?
Yes, the band specializes in odd. Quirky little happy songs. They play with 2 strings on the bass and 3 on the guitar.
But do you get it?
It could have been the word Wayne and Garth used instead of “schwing!,” but it wasn’t.
No. No video available for this one.
Dr. Anthony Avery
Spang: ... The sound of a pig hitting the bottom of an elevator shaft.
no, you know me, i never do. what is IT?
Spang is like something wavy, spanghetti, spangled banner, to spang as punishment, or the sound of buttons coming off a cheap suit.
We’ll see if anyone else tries.
2. "Losing My Religion" by REM
3. Here ya go...
So one could spang sprang into action?
If you can’t answer 1, how can you answer 2?
is it needing a bath of hellfire, or purgatory in order to purge oneself of sin/dirt?
I think one would “sprang sprang into action.”
You got it. Except it’s not hellfire, it’s purgatory fire.
Easily. The lyrics in both songs are random and make no sense. If the intent of the writer is stream-of-consciousness banter, then the songs are on the same topic.
Stevens: “We need help now, spang!”
As Benghazi explodes with a bang
But Hillary and Barry
Weren’t there when their panic phones rang
It’s a country in Europe, near Prance.
I clearly said to focus on the chorus.
you win, that is hilarious! A+++++
amazing story and that guy is hilarious! “you know something’s wrong when a pretty little white girl runs into the arms of a black man”, that reporter didn’t want to go down that road!!
don't most words sound dirty to you? wait, maybe that was someone else.
Now to get coffee - if I can manage to stop focusing on that haunting chorus for a few minutes.
I wonder how long before the auto-tune remix is released like Sweet Brown “Ain’t nobody got time for that” and the “Hide yo wife, hide yo kids, they rapin’ everybody up in there” interviews.
I'll raise you one Rory Wright, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon.
He's about 6'5" -- maybe 6'7". He looks like he's 22, but he's much older because he has been a favorite doctor around here for years and owns his own hospital. If he really were only 22 (which he is NOT) he could be my grandson!
But, I don't see him that often. I see the PTs 3 times a week. I admit that I'm not too faithful about daily exercise. I do it when I think about it. Most of my daily excise is derives from things I have to do. As my PT says, the body has unlimited ways to cheat.
I was shocked the other night to see Gowdy on an episode of "The New Detectives" back when he was a prosecuter. It's like discoving Fred Thompson in an old movie. I saw Thompson on an episode of Matlock recently.
Antoine Dodson of bed intruder fame has vowed to go straight. FYI !
He does look a bit like him. Ill keep dr Avery thanks. Though he’s not the hip doc, he does shoulders. My PTs are all pregnant women, oddly enough! I’m seeing the doc who replaced my hips today.
If you did want some more cowbell, click here. Some more awesome 70s fashion, too.
I have a man and a woman PT. They are both good. I think the woman is the lead PT. At least I see her the most often.
I chose Dr. Wright for his record and his bedside manner, not his looks. However, most of the women who recommended him liked his looks — LOL. As one of them said, “When you are going through such a brutal surgery, it’s nice to waide up to somebody good looking.” My previous surgeon had a couple of cases on his record where the knees came apart several months into recovery. I don’t need that.
Good luck today. Let us know what happens.
North Spain had rain for 41 of the 43 days I was overseas, snow on the last weekend of April.
... Got back home to NW GA ....And more rain since then. Global warming? Well, it’s a whopping 1/10 of one degree warmer this spang than it was in 1970. 43 years of global warming = 0.10 degree hotter?
Pinged for removal - sorry
Thanks. Commonwealth Orthopedic is the official Orthopaedic group/PT of the Redskins. They have a surgical group and a PT facility as well. The surgeons specialize in a specific body part. Because the hlps were recalled by the MFR, they have had a few re-dos but not many.
Well you just apanged right into that weather report!
They are using this song as an ad for a site called Shoe Dazzle. I don't get it, and I don't like it. I hate the image for impressionable teens. I think I'm a fuddy duddy, but our kids are so vulnerable. Shoe Dazzle will get no business from me.
My daughter likes her She Wolf song.
