Excellent word petaj - hmm... I wonder why you have pet in your pseudonym - perhaps petios is your second language - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 09:05:00

today is a day when good words truely run a plenty. i wish i'd've come up with something this good. stupid television filling my brain with laughter and not verbotomies. - jadenguy, 2007-06-08: 09:37:00

You're just lucky I work all day--that word was my first instinct! - mplsbohemian, 2007-06-08: 20:15:00

petaj petois occurred to me straight away when i checked the cartoon before leaving work. Then I had to go to tennis and didn't get home for a couple of hours, so I was hoping that no one else would think of it. - petaj, 2007-06-08: 22:18:00

petaj I'm embarrassed to admit that my only second language is verbotomese. Typically in Australia, most of us have not become fluent in anything but English. - petaj, 2007-06-08: 22:29:00
