Word For The Day, Monday, 2/3/14
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. in a dying state; near death. 2. on the verge of extinction or termination. 3. not progressing or advancing; stagnant: a moribund political party.
Etymology: 1721, "about to die," from Fr. moribund (16c.), from L. moribundus "dying," from mori "to die" (see mortal). Fig. sense of "near an end" is from 1837.
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.
The GOP's hopes for 2014 electoral victory, now moribund, will be DOA, should immigration reform pass.
miserable day in DC, raining cats and dogs but 39 deg.
Snowed in here in NJ.....Got the phone call from my employer to stay home!!!!!
well how nice for you! it’s too warm here, unforch!
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?
yes, but it still has to be gotten rid of! A+++
Well, for those of you that remember the “Where’s the Beef!” commercials,
the little old lady was complaining that there was moribund than burger!
RIP Clara! A+++
Living in Florida, I’ve learned to accept the fleeting, moribund nature of winters.
A+++ a fleeting winter is a good thing!
I used to like snow.....I don’t....I want to see a crocus!!!!!
Until we can be rid of B Hussein Obama, the Republic is definitely in a moribund state.
i agree, i am so ready for winter to be over. my husband is from upstate NY. i told him i would go with him anywhere but there. and this winter has northern VA looking like upstate NY. cars covered in salt, roads and sidewalks gritty with salt, snow in the yard and frigid temps! not good!
A+++ he is a living cancer.
Effing snowing here. Dang phone rang at 5 for school closure.
Upstate NY is great for snowmobiling....that’s it!!!!!! And yes I hate salt....it’s all over....I wash my car all the time and it gets salty again...I’m going to build a snowman and run it over!!!!!
oh boy. are they out of snowdays yet? Fairfax Co. has to go on Presidents day now, if there are more they will have to start extending the school year.
my husband washed my car last weekend, and this weekend again, so it’s not too bad. But i hate the grit!
Washed and wiped it down Friday, it’s garaged but will be a mess tomorrow ):
yeah, it was a bust wasn’t it? and that was hilarious! A+++
Prob.they’ll start tacking on to the end of the year soon.
It was apparent to me that Denver’s chance of winning the Super Bowl were moribund from the very first play
Nasty and icy and overcast here too. Two hour delay for school.
I laughed all the way through it too.
that huge head coming out of the purse was HILARIOUS.
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”
You can always cancel your membership afterward.
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.
Tell them you are on a diet and just give them a donation instead.
Ssh, we don’t have any electoral elections this year so don’t worry. Yet.
oh i’ll cancel as soon as practicable, have no doubt! i knew the scot in you would see my point in this!
yeah, can’t boycott little girls, totally understand.
loathsome creature. A+++
also love when the dog show guys say it’s hard to look it and it goes for them!
You did a nice thing. Hopefully the little girls will bail out by the end of middle school when the indoctrination begins. Ours did.
did not even notice her last night in that commercial! yes, it was pretty good!
A+++ have not followed common core really, but i know it’s a bad thing. Saw a tweet that said that Huckabee is advising them to re-brand and stay the course?
That was another good one. My favorite part was the music. I’m guessing yours was the tiny gymnast.
Huck needs to shut his pie hole. He wants to be president so badly he can taste it.
Ping for a funny ad, if you haven’t already seen it.
Doggie ping! (HUMOR)
