Class is in session!
See Chris Matthews expectorate and Al Sharpton macerate. Tune into MSNBC!
(Let your brain evaporate.)
Good morning. Every word we study seems to raise the spectre of Obumbum. You stole my thunder. I’ll have to think again.
Macerate = how fast your self defense spray comes out.
Very clever! Then I guess "expecto-rate" refers to the speed at which freebies are anticipated by the low-information supporters of Obama. Then again, I've been told that I don't know spit. At least it sounded like "spit."
Good pun on expecto-rate...
Could also be how fast you can spit.
I’m so proud i got that right away ! : )
I thought macerate was the swiftness of a crazed lunatic calming down after getting hit in the face with a squirt of mace....hmm, perhaps you are right though. I have seen it happen pretty dang fast right outside my ambulance. The guy kicked one of us (not me) and the spray hit his face within seconds. Amazing job by the cop. Nasty spitting mess all the way to the ER though.
We’re all proud of you, too. ;-)
Now you can stop taking the ahort bus ; )
if you do that long enough you could go blind.
The what now?
To engage in or perform the Macarena
