Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

The GOP's hopes for 2014 electoral victory, now moribund, will be DOA, should immigration reform pass.

Is it not ironic that within six months of launching the ACA, it being touted as the health care fix, that it itself is moribund?

Living in Florida, I’ve learned to accept the fleeting, moribund nature of winters.

Until we can be rid of B Hussein Obama, the Republic is definitely in a moribund state.

The florist offers a 20% discount to AARP members. It pains me to do so, but i have got to join, it’s at least $600 savings.

My best friend's granddaughters, 9 and 11, rang my doorbell yesterday, selling Girl Scout Cookies. As much as I wanted to, I couldn't refuse them. What was I supposed to tell them--The GSA is in league with the Planned Parenthood baby killers? Makes a boycott difficult.

In stentorian tones that are orotund
Obama, on Benghazi, is strangely jocund
“FOX is pushing the story
‘cause it’s defamatory
To regular ‘folks,’ it is moribund”

Well THAT's a bum thought to start the week! Certainly Virginia's recent election defeats don't help.

Hilarius. I’m glad I finally got to see that ad. Most of the clips cannot be shown on my laptop (no flash upgrade yet) and the stairs were too dauting to climb just for a video! Yours came through fine.
