Word For The Day, Monday, 9/9/13
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. causing or capable of causing laughter; laughable; ludicrous. 2. having the ability, disposition, or readiness to laugh. 3. pertaining to or connected with laughing.
Etymology: 155060; < Late Latin rīsibilis that can laugh, equivalent to Latin rīs ( us ) (past participle of rīdēre to laugh) + -ibilis -ible
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.
Obama's risible foreign policy team still getting laughs abroad.

No pushing at the door please!
Anyone who is not getting pings that wants to please let me know. I feel like i have missed putting a few of the more recently matriculated students on the roll, when i get notice on days i am working at home.
Obama: so bad that it’s risible
Go away! Or at least go invisible
His rantings on Syria
Are approaching deliria
“One Nation” completely divisible
good morning Truthy! A++++ i will NOT watch him blather tomorrow night, i don’t care what he announces.
I'd rather watch a re-run of my beloved Giants throwing 3 interceptions, losing 2 fumbles and muffing a punt against the arch-rival Cowboys.
Do you find it risible when I say the name of my friend?
The highlight of our game yesterday was the opening kickoff. The Titan fielded the ball at the goal line, stepped back into the end zone and knelt down.
Those 2 points were all we scored until the final minutes.
Good morning! We had fun last night at a Predators Foundation party and fundraiser for Parkison’s research. Met lots of people and hung out with players and coaches. Kevin Nealon was the entertainment and he was FUNNY! I mean, risible!
That should read Parkinson’s, you doofus!
that is def the pose he most often strikes.
I should have recorded it for you then TSSYF.
You can take comfort in knowing that despite all those gifts, the Cowboys STILL almost snatched defeat from the jaws of victory but they ran out of time.
sounds great. i have to google kevin nealon. he may have been the guy who emceed the NHL awards show a few years ago.
I saw that. The Steelers are definitely lacking some firepower right now. The Giants actually were competitive until the end, despite the 6 turnovers.
I told some people that if Rich Clune had taken off his shirt, he would have been able to make more money having pictures taken with people. Lots of ink there. I almost bid on a Sidney Crosby jersey for you. And I would have liked that Aerosmith guitar but the bidding started at $1000. Today’s our anniversary but we counted last night as our night to celebrate.
I think that was Amy Poehler’s ex.
