Attention all female Verbotomists:
It has come to my attention that the most men do not get "Sex and the City", the once popular TV Series which is just been release as "major" Hollywood extravaganza. I am hoping that perhaps, this is just an education problem. And in an effort to address this knowledge gap, I am proposing we engage ourselves in a Sex and the City Week here at Verbotomy, starting on Monday June 2, 2008. That is why I am sending out this emergency call for Sex and the City definitions.

Submit your Sex and The City Definition...

I have also posted a short instructional video on our blog to help give a hint to the males in the crowd. See: Verbotomy gets in bed with Sex and the City
