I'm addicted to Arrested Development. - jadenguy, 2007-06-08: 09:25:00

perhaps i should change my sentence since i've gotten no attention for a clearly awesome word... - jadenguy, 2007-06-08: 11:26:00

Awww, don't pout! Here's some attention... ATENTION PEOPLE! PLEASE CHECK OUT JADENGUY'S WORD. IT'S QUITE LOVELY. Better? - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-08: 11:38:00

actually, i'm smiling a bunch now. that was amusing! thanks. - jadenguy, 2007-06-08: 12:12:00

sorry jadenguy - there are just so many good words today and yours is definitely a great one - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 12:37:00

i was just joking because my sentence is terribly esoteric, nominally tangentially related to the word, and the product of a lot of allusionary jokes. purpleartichoke did get me to chuckle, so all's well that ends with laughter. - jadenguy, 2007-06-08: 15:03:00

hehe to that sentiment - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 15:05:00

Pronunciation: pet ant ikayt

Sentence: Petula had gone to her Petiotrist many times to try and petanticate better with her pet pug, Petunia. Though a petulant pet, Petunia perpetually tried to pet peeve Petula by pretending not to understand her peticular speech patterns. Finally, Petula put herself in her pooch's persona and put out many puppy perks for Petunia. Amazing what prolific pet perks and persuasive pet lingo can do to persuade a pooch to perform with perfection!

Etymology: Pet (a domesticated animal kept for companionship or amusement) & Pedantic( marked by a narrow focus on or display of learning especially its trivial aspects) & Communicate (transmit thoughts or feelings or information)

I've said it before - Verbitch. Oh well, at least it banished that evil disco tune from my head. (...i-n-g-o...) - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-08: 06:45:00

And Bingo was his name-o! what disco tune? Bee Gees? - jadenguy, 2007-06-08: 09:57:00

Believe it or not, inspired by verbotomy again. I was thinking that I'd like to wait until the next day to vote, but I don't like the view you get, having to hit More, More, More (how do you like it, how do you like it). Egad, it's back. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-08: 11:00:00

Pronunciation: pets-puh-RAHN-toh

Sentence: Petsperanto became fashionable once again in the 23rd century, but by then it resembled Klingon. Later it would lean more toward bafflegab, just as it always had, but Star Trek was taken a bit more seriously in those halcyon days. Of all the people to reanimate, why'd they pick Shatner?

Etymology: pet + Esperanto


I couldn't decide between "Petsperanto" and "Espetanto." If somebody wants to take the other one, I'm cool with that. - Clayton, 2007-06-08: 02:15:00

probably his singing prowless? - jadenguy, 2007-06-08: 09:51:00

fabulous word Clayton - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 12:14:00

maybe they like Shatner because he's such a 'regular' guy - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 12:15:00

I'm only giving Shatner a hard time. I've decided also that I should've gone with "Espetanto." So hasty sometimes. - Clayton, 2007-06-08: 13:07:00

I love petsperanto - it's a great word and I referred to Shatner as being a regular guy because he does all those bran commercials - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 13:25:00

"Petsperanto" is better than "Espetanto". - ErWenn, 2007-06-08: 14:12:00

I'm glad to hear that he did do bran commercials, Jabberwocky, because that's the kind of regular I was thinking of when you first said it, and I thought maybe my mind was just in the gutter...toilet...whatever. - ErWenn, 2007-06-08: 14:13:00

it's a good thing Clayton chose Shatner and not JL Picard - that would have led to all kinds of silliness - we could have even encorporated Galwaywegian's baldipachitis into it - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 14:39:00

"Espetanto" has a nice ring to it, though. Damn, now I can't decide again. If anybody reading this works at a coffeeshop, please invent the Espressperanto. I'll take fifty of the most confusing drink known to man, please. - Clayton, 2007-06-08: 16:24:00

petaj Sounds like coffee with a dash of Spanish fly - petaj, 2007-06-08: 22:25:00
