Word For The Day, Monday, August 5, 2013 mawkish
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".
mawkish; adjective 1. characterized by sickly sentimentality; weakly emotional; maudlin. 2. having a mildly sickening flavor; slightly nauseating.
166070; obsolete mawk maggot ( late Middle English < Old Norse mathkr maggot) + -ish1 . See maggot
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....

WFB's attempt to emulate us ; ) No pushing at the door please!
Here is my example with WFTD.
The mawkish libs in Seattle are censoring completely benign words to protect PC sensibilities.
better late then never.
we have some toothless men from southern VA here pulling a stump of a tree that had been cut down last fall. It was a locust tree and apparently it has been sending shoots up into the lawn bc the stump had not been removed. The toothless men have removed it and done sundry other trimming etc for $500. You can see why them come to NoVA for work.
xshub is lawn obsessed. is that a common male condition? we have been through at least a dozen lawncare companies, bc if he doesn’t see an improvement, BOOM they are gone. The lawn is consistently treated but we have nutgrass and assorted other crap poking up at all times and not just a little bit. and our house sits on only a half acre.
I think it’s more of a guy thing but I am more into yardwork than the spouse. The only part he enjoyed was the riding mower and now that’s gone.
Women, yes. Lawns--not so much!
Obama, androgynous, dorkish
His anecdotes border on mawkish
The multitudes? Bore ‘em
Al Queda? Ignore ‘em
He’s making me even more hawkish
By the way, as a native of da Bronx, the first two lines in my limerick rhyme perfectly.
I think there is a certain type that obsesses over these types of things.
A ++++ excellent!
You’re such a dawk!! ; )
Good grief !! A +++ clearly misses it!!
Thankfully, the purported B-day of The Unnh took place over the weekend so we were at least somewhat spared of the more mawkish Media commemorations in prime-time...
A++++ purported bday LOL! Yes I guess there was mention of it but I managed to avoid more than that.
Each time Mitch McConnell opens his mouth, I can imagine anyone interviewing him getting a mawkish odor from the breath of each word, indicative of his sickening misunderstanding of the nature of this country.
eThere isn’t much use in wearing yourself out over a yard way out here, but guys will always find something to be obsessed with-it is a man thing, I think. MrT5 had a thing for having all of his tools with other tools like them in a certain place on the shelves in the garage-he would religiously return them to that spot after use. I call that being anal retentive...
When liberals are promoting
One of their Marxist stands
Saying it’s for the children
While they wring their hands
If I hear that mawkish line
Just tone more time, I swear
I’ll be turning up Ted Nugent
So I won’t rip out my hair
The emperor doesn’t realize
We’re tired of being broke
By paying for his vacations
And his every golfing stroke...
I’m alternating a product info search and WFTD this morning...
A +++ I’m focused solely on the governors race in VA. Ken Cuccinelli must defeat scumbag terry mcauliffe. Xsbaby is now working for Women for Ken, a PAC.
Oops-”one” not “tone”...
A ++++ that was great!! I’m sitting at DMV, praying xsbaby will finally pass the learners permit test. She’s taking it on paper this time maybe that will help.
Haha - I agree!
