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

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

Toronto’s venerable “Mop & Pail” as the paper is affectionately known, is what led me to Verbotomy on Friday. My first instinct was to submit “Doggerel” then realized that it was in no way sufficiently twisted to survive! I’m looking forward to a lotta laffs with this!

mplsbohemian - 2007-06-10: 19:58:00
Dang, I just came up with a much better word, and it's too late for me to enter it: gerbilish!
