zygote - completely inappropriate for any sane conversation and it sounds hideous

I want 'Like' gone. At least when it is every other word in a freakin' sentence!

Haggis

"Perfect Storm."

That and "Haggis."

Any name that ends with four vowels.

Umm rob's ends with 3 technically. One is repeated...

I'm just sayin'

Dammit! I was gonna nail you on that one. No exceptions. We aren't having the I after E except after C crap. No double letters means NO double letters....including you Haggis :D

Yes, tigers like monkeys a lot, especially the ones that spend time on the ground.

I'm so glad to see that emoticon on the list. Everytime I see one of those "heart" things, I think it's an ice cream cone or something. It just doesn't register to me as a "heart" immediately.

WTF! I throw myself under the bus for you with Haggis and you just leave me there? Nice guy you turned out to be ;)

Haggis can't drive. He can't even open a door.

Kitrianna

:ROFL:

I can no longer hear the person whose name no longer exists.

I submitted "s/he". I feel good.

Can you still hear me? :)

Gee, Joe, if you take s/he out of the mix--how am I going to condensendingly refer to my ex-husband who now cross-dresses full time, legally changed his name to a woman's name but it far too much a weinie to actually go through the rigors of psychoanalysis and the operation?

I mean, really. There is a good use for it.

Two this time -

supercalifragilisticexpealidocious - superflous on its face

antidisestablishmentarianism - if you belong with those whose beliefs are against conventional principles just say as much; pretentious and a waste of syllables and bandwidth. That might be a good idea for a new thread - make up your own 'isms'

So do you think you're some big language scientist, maybe an Einstein?

And to think of what happened last year to a perfectly good minister.

I stopped listening to Hannity just because of his endless repetition of that "NOT God BLESS America,..." clip.

Wordsmith.

Please. Immediately. And allow me to strangle any offender that comes up to me and says, "Ed, I have this item that needs wordsmithing." or "Can you wordsmith this for me, Ed?" or any other variation thereof.

Wait a minute..."wordsmith" has been verbed?!?!

That's wrong on so many levels.

Shadow_Ferret

Everything has been verbed.

"Someone posted a stupid comment and I robeiaed them."

See?
