Word For The Day, Tuesday July 15, 2014
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.a conceited, foolish dandy; pretentious fop
2. Archaic head; pate.
[Coxcomb is a corrupted spelling of cock's comb , the comb of a rooster, hence the badge resembling it that was worn in the cap of a professional fool or jester, hence the wearer of the cap, hence a fool or a vain and silly man.]
No Spanish today due to blurriness.
Jay Carney, Barack’s lying coxcomb
Replaced now in Earnest, keeps rocks thrown
Josh says they’re transparent
But his viewpoint is errant
His podium still just a schmuck’s home
It’s Josh Earnest now, which Jonah Goldberg pointed out is an oxymoron of sorts. It’s fitting, though, as the guy seems to be always seriously kidding us.
LOL! good one!
Did you watch the “24” finale?
Yes I did. I was afraid they were going to off Belichick. Audrey was our least favorite character. Loved the send-off Jack gave Cheng. What did you think of it?
Being nearly bald, what did Wally Cox comb?
I think it was thoroughly depressing in the last few minutes. Everybody is scared, nobody will remember anything that happened this day (or any of Jack’s “save-the-days”) and our hero is off for a life of torture at the hands of his enemies.
No good deed goes unpunished.
I was half-expecting Jack to have on a suicide vest and blow up the helicopter at the end.
I suppose there’s a glimmer of hope that Jack will survive and return, but it’s grim.
I would watch another (abbreviated) series with Kate Morgan (despite being named after a porn star) provided she has the right sidekicks.
Haha, all true
My Time-Warner service leaves a lot to be desired, but I’m not enthralled by the Coxcombs at that cable company talking takeover, either ...
I was lax in college and I never got any scholarship.
obv not lax enough to end up in a LAX championship. piker.
We know Jack can fly a helicopter so what’s to stop him from strangling the pilot, pushing out the bad guy and flying away? It was weird though, I was saying Chloe is Jack’s best friend, his only friend, except for Belichick, before they would say the same lines. Freaks my family out when I do that. I liked Morgan and had no idea of the porn name since I know nothing of it. Still seemed strange to have Benjamin Bratt be a bad guy.
I made the mistake of showing up. The lax champion didn’t.
My favorite moment was still when he threw Lady Stark out the window.
I like it too! I didn’t pre-order, because my internal dialogue argued ‘CD or download?’ back and forth to the point of inactivity. But the family is having fun guessing what songs will end up being parodied. And my girl can’t wait for Weird Al to tour so she can see him again. Finally, a parenting win!
