Attention Verbotomists: We are trying a new thing this week with "photos", which we are using to illustrate the definitions, instead of the cartoons. I have chosen photos from some of the best photographers at Flickr. Click on the photo credit (creative commons license) under the image to see the original pictures. Hope you like them! ~ James
