Word For The Day
Monday, September 29, 2003 | Slip 18

Posted on 09/29/2003 7:20:58 AM PDT by Slip18

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”. Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the “word of 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....


Subbie Slip is watching you. She has a large telescope with her today. She will be yanking you out of class and into the Janitor’s closet if you are evil, and then maybe sending you off to the Principal’s office to refresh your memory on the usage of his learning stick. And, yes, the paddle has those wondrous holes in them.

flatulence noun:
Pronunciation: flat’u-lens Etymology: Flatus – Latin “ a blowing”

Excessive gas in the stomach and intestines.

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Now, Vast and xsmommy, play nicely in here today with all the other students! Flurry, you behave yourself, otherwise Nurse Helga will take care of your flatulence in a not so nice way.

I heard Principal Robinson is roaming the halls today, so all of you students be on your best behavior.

You must use the WFTD in a sentence for an A. For a + after your “A,” you must bring in a link of the word usage or something funny, a poem or some prose that will elucidate the word for us.

If you need to know how to link, come to the Subbie’s desk in the front of the class.

I'm not using Vastie's WFTD, although it is a good one. My computer died on me the minute I tried to post this old WFTD that was already prepared. Who was it that recommended this word? It's not my fault, really!

I think it was Flurry the Flatulence that gave me the word. I did so love Vastie's word, but I just couldn't get it up!

Hey xs, did you notice that Miss Slippy opened the class in the wrong hall? How long do you think it will take before the admin mod moves us from "news" to "chat"?

Tucker Carlson is a flatulent old fart for getting bent out of shape about Fox News giving out his home #. he is the one that started to play games by giving out the Fox #, so he can hardly cry that his privacy was invaded.

Miss Slip, I've been around but busy -- and it's daunting to check into class with several hundred posts already in... How are you?

*In the year 2000*

Taco Bell food will come with a warning label like cigarettes after years of litigation by trial lawyers:

"SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: The consumption of this burrito may cause flatulence."

Flurry would support a flatulence ban, the toxic chemicals are dangerous to public health and he doesn't like the smell!
