Flu...ooo...moon, I saw you standing alone...without a dream in your heart...without a love of your own." Song of the Day, dedicated to Silveryaspen! - readerwriter, 2009-04-22: 10:47:00

Enjoyed your sentence, mweinmann - well crafted. - silveryaspen, 2009-04-22: 11:18:00

Silvery Moon is more fitting as a song for me, readerwriter. 'Sail along silvery moon, sail along lovers' lane, sail along silvery moon, to my love again!" There's another old verse about the moon I like "Oh, the moon shines east and the moon shines west, but I like the moonshine they make next door best!" - silveryaspen, 2009-04-22: 11:22:00

Morbitorbit

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mor bit or bit

Sentence: When Glak and Fribor entered Earth's atmosphere, they knew they were going into a morbitorbit. They had been to this planet, third from the Sun, before, but eons ago. When they saw it again, it was like viewing the rusted and decaying snagrom of a kleronbeen. A yellowy haze (not yet identified on their gastronomogeiger)hung over the sphere. Then they started giggling to themselves. "Jokes on you, Earthlings! You feel guilty, but really there is a sign near the Milky Way, pointing to Earth as a sanitary refuse and toxic dump for the Universe. All us aliens picked your planet because we could hide our trash in plain sight here! Your are not alone and the trash is out there!"

Etymology: Morbid (caused by or altered by or manifesting disease or pathology;suggesting the horror of death and decay; suggesting an unhealthy state) & Orbit (the (usually elliptical) path described by one celestial body in its revolution about another)

Today's definition was inspired by Earth Day. And the way things are going, maybe we do need some extraterrestrial help... ~ James

silveryaspen - 2009-04-22: 02:09:00
This is another great fresh definition and very clever cartoon!

silveryaspen - 2009-04-22: 02:13:00
Since players are located, not only all over the 4 time zones in North America, but the time zones, of Europe, Asia, and even Austrailia ... verbotomies are posted all during the 24 hour period after a new definition is posted. For example, when it is midnight ESDT, where I am the is 10:00 p.m. MSDT. I certainly do like to be in bed earlier than midnight, even thought tonight I won't be!

abrakadeborah - 2009-04-22: 06:17:00
James, we certainly need more done to regulate people somehow to quit building MORE and use empty buldings and incentives to clean up our world! It's so sad to me to watch what the greed of people and uncaring of what they are doing to our planet for our children to have to deal with when we're long gone...food for thought on this one! :) I enjoyed today's verbotomies a LOT! Thank YOU!

abrakadeborah - 2009-04-22: 07:27:00
OOOPS James, I see a typo...(buldings) buildings* It's late and I was bored and commenting on a LOT pages,voting and making definitions...I guess I better get some rest finally! Having too much FUN!!!! lol :) I LOVE this site and the people!

readerwriter - 2009-04-22: 08:34:00
Me,too, Abrakadeborah...and Down Under because they are one day ahead, they get to play Verbotomy on Sunday!

mrskellyscl mrskellyscl - 2009-04-22: 10:21:00
It's a bit disheartening at times when I get up at 5:00 a.m. to see the definition and not only are there several words posted, but folks have already voted before we on the east coast have had our coffee.

silveryaspen - 2009-04-22: 22:46:00
Sorry mrskellysci ... but it's such a fun way to end my day! Hope you find it a fun way to begin yours! My biggest joy comes from reading everyone's creations, and feeling enriched and refreshed by that as I begin my day. I do wait until the last hour or two before I vote, so I can give consideration to as many verbotomies as possible ... but occasionally there is one so appealing and great, it's hard to wait! It's just nice to think that every is having the time of their lives while whenever they are here. Sure is nice that this open to all time zones all over the world!

splendiction - 2009-04-22: 22:52:00
Happy Earth Day to all!

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2009-04-23: 00:27:00
Yes it is earth day at Verbotomy, and we have people playing from all sides of the planet, which is great! Thank you to everyone! ~ James

readerwriter - 2009-04-23: 04:17:00
Maybe we are all adding new meaning to the word Bi-Polar????

'Don't get too close. It might be contagious...'

DEFINITION: n. A sick planet which has a cold, a fever, and some kind of weird infection. v. To be worried sick about the health of the planet, because you know the problem is really the people.
