Word For The Day, Monday, 10/28/13
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. an official license to print or publish a book, pamphlet, etc., especially a license issued by a censor of the Roman Catholic Church. Compare nihil obstat. 2. sanction or approval; support: Our plan has the company president's imprimatur.
Etymology: Origin: 163040; < Neo-Latin: let it be printed, Latin: let it be made by pressing upon (something); see impress1
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.
Big Man gives his imprimatur of another BIG MAN.

No pushing at the door please!
If Professor Higgins from “My Fair Lady” would start a business doing what he did for Miss Doolittle,
would he be a “Im Prim ateur”?
i am going to have to let that simmer a bit... ; ) A+++
I’m surprised that King Obama hasn’t used the FCC to cancel the imprimatur for Fox News to broadcast.
maybe because, as some freepers suggest, fox has moved a bit left! A+++
I admit it was quite a stretch...
Mom always said I was born too early to be either useful or interesting. Im prima tur!
You mean those Chaldeans of Ur were primatur too?
bless ur heart A+++ ; )
CIC went cerebral there for a minute!
Oh! Like a party! a cerebralation.
and i changed you from CYC to CIC, you are eminently more qualified than the guy who has that title now!
Had Ben Franklin and many other great patriots eschewed imprimatur, We might not exist as the republic we have today.
I’m just a CIC trapped in the body of a CYC. (snip, snip, clip, clip, “Not too close there, mate!”, stitch, pucker, stitch, stitch) and I’m bock! Bock? Bock? What have you done to CYC?!
MAJOR SCREWUP! I meant "Had Ben Franklin and many other great patriots NOT eschewed imprimatur, We might not exist as the republic we have today.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
President Ronald Reagan
George Soros gave his imprimatur
To Obama, a socialist plotter
When their Maker is met
It’s for sure they won’t get
Into Heaven, but someplace much hotter
A++++ i threw out your other erroneous hw ; )
I have that first line on a sticker for my car.
I am not now and not ever going to get the imprimatur of, or “a license issued by a censor of the Roman Catholic Church” for the books I have written. But that doesn’t surprise me.
Maybe if I had put some clothes on the guy ...
Well, we’ll never know, will we?
yeah, they aren’t big on porn for some reason A+++
You know, neither am I, now.
Kinda glad I got that out of my system. Let me know when the Word For The Day will be "cathartic".
Is your puppy doing well?
It used to be that imprimatur
From one with gravitas or fame
Could assure credibility to
A bill or a law with the name
Thanks to Obama and his minions
That has taken an opposite turn-
Any backing from their messiah
Will cause it to crash and burn
Like the unraveling Obamacare mess-
The website-from-hell and high cost
Have voters wishing its namesake
Would shut up, go away and get lost
great job!! A++++
Yes, thanks, chan is doing better it appears, she has more energy and seems to be herself again. am still working out with the dogwalker about taking her next weekend, but i feel more comfortable leaving her now, barring anything unforeseen.
xshub knows the bankruptcy judge dealing with the Detroit bankruptcy case. A+++
Funny how he grabs all power possible, but never knows what any of his departments are doing.
I didn't see this happening so soon; Vanek was bound for UFA anyway, maybe it's better value now. Interesting too that it took place just prior to Lindy Ruff's return to the Arena tonight coaching for the Stars ...
I’m so glad to hear Chan is improving.
an endorsement for Krispy Kreme? how nice.
RIP SU alum lou reed.
A+++ guess they had to get while the getting was good.
A very painful lesson, in voting Democrat.
Sadly, it affects those least likely to recover from it.
It will be good to see him playing with Tavares.
Fox News doesn’t broadcast. You can’t get it with any antenna.
They did venture into college football Saturday evening. Some poor schmuck looking for Huckabee must have been confused.
Omg that is hilarious! I was roaring aloud!!
I did not have management imprimatur to reboot the email server, but considering their technological ignorance and the fact that the president of company was complaining he couldn’t get his day started without it, I rebooted them anyway.
Lol. When I was in Millington we used to play Assassin.
Everyone puts their name in a Jar, everyone takes a name.
Dart guns. Defined Safe places. (Mess hall, club,Barracks etc).
You get a guy you get his paper (no rule about going after the guy whose name you have, as you can get the guy that has your name, inadverently, its collecting that counts)
Guy who ends up with most names wins.
Would this bear a South American imprimatur?
Boys will be boys. ;) Really though, it sounds like a lot of fun!
What makes it entertainig is when all of sudden, two guys break out of a crowd and start running for dear lofe for no apparent reason....
