Word For The Day, December 3, 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".
-noun plural, singular incunabulum
1.extant copies of books produced in the earliest stages (before 1501) of printing from movable type.
2. the earliest stages or first traces of anything.
[181525; < Latin: straps holding a baby in a cradle, earliest home, birthplace, probably equivalent to *incūnā ( re ) to place in a cradle ( in- in-2 + *-cūnāre, verbal derivative of cūnae cradle) + -bula, plural of -bulum suffix of instrument; def. 1 as translation of German Wiegendrucke
Get in on the ground floor.
what if there’s a nice basement?
You buy a pool table, and a small refrigerator for beer.
One would think the Owe-bamacare website is an incunabula given how outdated and primitive it is.
Great. Yesterday, I had ‘Shock the manque’ running through my head all day, now this will inflict it’s ravages as well.
Researching medieval incunabulum, Prof. Indiana Jones found a map showing the hiding place of some alien treasure called a bitcoin.
Good morning. How does incunabula fit with the WFTD criterion that our sentence be representative of the news of the day?
hahaha! but that’s a great song!
I think I saw that word written on the front of an emergency vehicle, but it was hard to tell.
The letters were all backwards.
It is for you to fit the word to the news, not the other way around.
Little Red Riding Hood was better ;-)
When archaeologists view our incunabula
In the future, they’ll all shout “How fabula!”
Our country destroyed
And into the void
Kardashians discussing their *labula
*I know it’s the wrong word, but at least it rhymes.
how about Sydney Leathers [whorebag who was sexting with Weiner] having her’s cut down and she intends to auction off the overage.... i didn’t even know that was POSSIBLE!
Emmitt Smith dropped by to remind everybody that there are ONLY 22 days until Christmas.
Does it have a pool table or a pinball machine?
Infinitessimal incunabula, if allowed to persist, can become ravaging infestations. Consider liberals, for example. When first sighted they are a curiosity, nothing more. But they grow and grow, consuming all in their sight until they are no longer incunacious but are dominant and malicious.
GMTA! The first thing I picture when someone says basement is a pool table. Well, that and black light posters but let’s not talk about high school...
He’s teaching us patience and charity. Now if we’d just apply these to the people we encounter every day the world would be a much better place.
no, i hadn’t, but thanks for posting it. i take no pleasure from questioning Pope Francis on these things. yes i understand he views everything through the prism of the third world from which he came. i love his unassuming and humble nature, i love that he embraced the incredibly deformed man in such a loving way that the man was transported to paradise by his touch. but soooo much of what he says makes me uneasy.
Not just lib, but flat out COMMUNIST. That’s my impression. It’s not the translation, either.
Other musings: Does anybody remember the children's book series about Bunnicula, a silly little tale about a vampire bunny rabbit?
Is she 21 yet, or is this a case of underage overage?
A modern day Dr. Frankenstein could sew all the excess labia together, give it a jolt of electricity, and Voila! Hillary Clinton.
Remember that Francis is Argentine...a product of the socialist glory days of Juan & Evita Peron. However misguided, he probably just can’t help himself.
oh i am very cognizant of that fact, but it is troubling nonetheless. esp since i am obsessed with end times eschatology, and a bad pope is something that occurs at that point. not that i think he is that, but troubling even still.
yes that electrified bag of labia is down in the polls, did you see?
I completely agree. Amongst his many titles is “Vicar of Christ”. I wish he would review that list from time to time. :-|
It couldn’t happen to a nicer witch.
O M G, i just got an email saying that the hour long staff meeting tomorrow is to be devoted to training on diversity and inclusion. thank the LORD i am going to be off tomorrow, bc i have zero doubt that i would blurt something aloud that would be a firing offense. this is beyond outrageous. our office is ethnically diverse, and always has been. if this is to cram faggotry down our throats then it’s even more of a godsend that i won’t be here for it.
I wish you would go and ask them to point out one single benefit of diversity. Just one.
and have to live out my days here branded as an open homophobe. no thanks!
what would it gain? taking a stand for no gain makes no sense to me. not a soul in this ofc has any doubt about my stand on any issue. so i jump ugly on diversity and what is accomplished. my coworkers who are liberals don’t even see the point of this. staff attorneys do not hire/fire/promote, that’s management’s purview— train them.
and i venture to guess that the supervisors in my ofc agree that it’s worthless, as i am sure it’s being imposed by the higher ups.
Homophobe? Do you STILL pretend you don’t like making out with the secretaries??
there are bonafide lesboics here, i assure you, you would not be turned on in any way, shape, or form by them.
well, I won’t excuse that one. Jesus did become angry. Or do we just revise the Bible when we feel like it?
damn. Can’t tell you the number of times the freakin’ real world gets in the way of the one inside my head
that’s the thing. do we have to excuse everything, when there has been a string in the past year of stuff to overlook, explain away, accuse of being mistranslated or the product of leftwing media bias? i’m still waiting to see the flocks of the left returning to church based on these pronouncements, which was what Hobbes said was supposed to happen. More butts in the pews, to hear the leftwing pronouncements expounded upon. great.
Jesus was man and God, he had human emotions....which means anger can be used for good. He did not live in anger, but he did experience it.....so is it OK that I am angry at the Pope for this crap? Hmmm, something to ponder.
oh, the lefties are IN our churches already. this just gives them better cover.
