    "These ants are my friend, they're blowing in the wind."

    Poor Mr Dylan. I can't imagine anything worse than seeing your tiny ant friends being taken away from you by a sudden cruel gust of wind. :-( No wonder he always sounds so miserable. RIP Ants. :-(

    Its lucky for him that this never actually happened. No, what has actually occurred here is that I have misheard his lyrics for poor comedic effect... and to give you todays word of the day!!! :-D

    That's right folks! There's only a blimmin' word for a misheard lyric!!!

    MONDEGREEN!!

    You know how some people keep trying to be funny, but they aren't?

    Well there's a word for pathetic attempts at humour...

    WITZELSUCHT

    ...and if it was up to me I'd have it branded across some people's f******g heads. :mad:

    You know when you make a gun shape with your hand? Point it at someone and playfully go "Pow! pow! pow!"

    Well, someone I trust implicitly has assured me there is a word for it and I see no reason to doubt them or check it's vailidity myself.

    FINGER-BANGING!!!

    Isn't that great? Really sums it up doesn't it? I don't know about the rest of you, but I think I might finger-bang someone today! Just for fun! But remember, if you want to finger-bang someone yourself, please bare in mind that some people don't find joking about guns very funny. So I suggest you do what I'm going to do and ask permission first.

    I wonder how many of us will get finger-banged today? I sure like to get a finger-banging in the street.

    Maybe if I don't get one today, I'll just finger-bang myself.

    You know when you are happy? And because your not used to it, you start picking it apart, analysing it and trying to work out what the downside of it is?

    Well there's a word for that.

    KAIROSCLEROSIS!!!

    Have a nice day everyone! :lol:

    What about the opposite of it undies, that I also sometimes do, like when something bad happens to you, and you try to analyse it for positive aspects

    I believe that's called arrogance.

    Because of the assumption that you can.

    Now shut up, I've woken up in a love-dovey mood today and I don't have time to argue. I need to find a nice mushy word of the day...

    ...ah here's one! You know when you want to give someone a big affectionate smooch? Well there's only a word for it!

    DEOSCULATE!!!

    ...nice isn't it? And yet if you tell most people you want to deosculate them, I bet they'd slap you. :-(

    Well round here we call it getting a lovey-dovey on. And I think we're better people for it.

    but what would you call the opposite of that undies? When someone doesn't feel all lovey-dovey?

    @Underdunn has called in sick today, so he's asked me to do it in his absence.

    So you know when you really want to keep people off your property, or you really want to keep some kinda animal IN your property? You might think "Hmm, if only I had some kind of wooden posts with some wire attached to solve this problem I'm having".

    Well there's a word for that structure you're thinking of.

    FENCE

    You're welcome :thanks:
