Pronunciation: DAWG-MUH-TOE-MEEE-UH

Sentence: Mickey was very proud of her DOGMATOMIA. She had clearly spent hours shaving or tweezing her facial hair into a personal proclamation of pure pugnacity rather than submit simperingly to the recalcitrant regrowth on her upper lip area. The problem is, nobody knew what statement she was trying to make.... besides "go away".

Etymology: DOGMA+TOMIA... DOGMA- a strongly held belief not to be questioned... -TOMIA-Greek suffix meaning to cut or shave...

That picture is so disturbing on so many levels.

About the picture... I have received a suggestion that this young lady's allegiances are less than clear, so I have prepared an alternative portrait. Please see: Being Clear About our Allegiances. Thanks ~ James

OMG! It's an American Hairwolf in Toondon! (Or perhaps she has a hairmone problem.)

Chewytobacca? I wonder what JediJawa thinks of that?

Bulletchewer - 2007-05-02: 16:45:00
Always love stirring up debate, but credit's due the artist. For some strange reason forgotten in a dream, I only ever thought of this definition applying to the male of the species...

It appears as if this wampeter definitely needs a waxing!
