Word For The Day, Monday, 7/28/14

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".

Behoove; verb (used with object), be·hooved, be·hoov·ing. 1. to be necessary or proper for, as for moral or ethical considerations; be incumbent on: It behooves the court to weigh evidence impartially.

2. to be worthwhile to, as for personal profit or advantage: It would behoove you to be nicer to those who could help you.

verb (used without object), be·hooved, be·hoov·ing. 3. Archaic. to be needful, proper, or due: Perseverance is a quality that behooves in a scholar.

Etymology: before 900; Middle English behoven, Old English behōfian to need ( behōf behoof + -ian infinitive suffix)

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....

before the EXEMPT are either swept up by the People
and replaced, .... or seized by their Tyrant and disposed.

One of the reasons beef prices are so high is that the goobermint has ordered cattlemen to send troublemaking calves to special classes so that they learn to behoove.

Us to get in his communist groove
He is merely a parrot
For Commissar Jarrett
She orchestrates every last move

“Lexophilia is a word used to describe those that have a love for words, such as “you can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna fish”, or “to write with a broken pencil is pointless.” A competition to see who can come up with
the best lexophiles is held every year in an undisclosed location. This year’s winning submission is posted at the very end.

.. When fish are in schools, they sometimes take debate.

.. A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months.

.. When the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C.L.A.

.. The batteries were given out free of charge.

.. A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail.

.. A will is a dead giveaway.

.. With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress.

.. A boiled egg is hard to beat.

.. When you’ve seen one shopping center you’ve seen a mall.

.. Police were summoned to a daycare center where a three-year-old was
resisting a rest.

.. Did you hear about the fellow whose entire left side was cut off? He’s
all right now.

.. A bicycle can’t stand alone; it’s just two tired.

.. When a clock is hungry it goes back four seconds.

.. The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine is now fully recovered.

.. He had a photographic memory which was never developed.

.. When she saw her first strands of grey hair she thought she’d dye.

.. Acupuncture is a jab well done. That’s the point of it.

And the cream of the twisted crop:

.. Those who get too big for their pants will be totally exposed in the
end.

yes, I think what we missed most of all was bringing in the bday treats for an in-class party. Any bday around a holiday is a gyp-job though, you’re right.

Happy belated birthday!

Home from an estimate for someone with 2 pet snakes-I love animals, but that is creepy, so when the customer proudly showed me the things-two small boas of some sort-I smiled politely, said oh, aren’t they pretty and went about my estimate-outside, fortunately...

The clueless Obama minions-
Still elevating their noses
As they address we commoners
And strike practiced poses

It would behoove them better
To look and listen, but no-
As the kingly numbers plummet
They’re putting on a show

Trying to appease their base
Means everyone else gets dissed
And now no one is listening
Since most of us are pissed...

It would behoove

Oops-didn’t finish my extra sentence-it would behoove them to send Rahm the 1000 illegals he asked for, and several thousand more-Chicago certainly could use more gang recruiters...

That was probably fake. An homage to the pick of the ISIS dude having a $6,000 James Bond villain style watch.

And you tell me these guys aren’t CIA....
