    Excuse me... Miss Shmi, I'm francophone, so do I get to use "under" instead?

    (Actually, I believe that is the true meaning of the word. A sous chef is nothing but a fancy way of saying chef assistant.)


    In the meantime in honour of our movie night today's word is evolution:

    Evolution being defined as what gives creationists (who believe that the world is only 500 years old) a real bug up the butt.

    The evolution of the star wars fan throught out the years seems to have followed NASA programs of space exploration.. high at some points, and down at others.. But as the Evolution continue, maybe true philosopher will get to search for the meening of religion and find out that IN FACT all religions are alike, and that it is an higher FORCE that bind us together.. ;)

    Hey U.,

    Do I even want to ask how you know what a tire tastes like?

    I could be wrong but doesn't Moxie (besides being slurm's biggest competitor)have an actual meaning? Like being gutsy?

    You're right - moxie is defined as, energy, pep, courage, determination. However... all those meanings are the result of incredibly good marketing. Moxie was a soft drink before it was a commonly used word.

    [link=http://www.xensei.com/users/iraseski/WhatIs.html]http://www.xensei.com/users/iraseski/WhatIs.html[/link] This link explains all, but does have a repetitive ragtime piano solo going on in the background - so you may want to mute.

    And then there's Moxy Fruvous, which is completely different, but deserves mentioning, because I've decided to mention it.

    C'mon, everyone...

    Once Greg was the King of Spane...

    M'kay, M'kay Greg, but the Poohbah said you were the king of Spain. Do you realize in the song you get to be a zamboni driver for the Leafs? Kewl...

    Anyway, I digress. Revisionsm...hmmm...to easy just attach the word to any Walt Disney films in the last 5 years.

    I thought so too, but I found it on the net as the king of Spain.

    Anyway, how about we make the word of the day D'oh! in honour of the fact it has made it into the Oxford dictionary.

    the song is king of Spain, I'm the king of Spane, I know, it's all very technical.

    D'oh! A deer! A female deer!

    Despite being late in the day, it's time for a new word of the day, which is:

    sphincter

    This just in, sphincter related injuries up .002%; suspected cause is popularity of sphincter excerices to relieve stress and revitalize skin.

    "Always remember to use Drain-O in clogs of the sink... never for clogs in the sphincter. It can get messier than mixing up your colon and your cologne."

    You want me to say "what," like I don't get it...Is that it?

    The sphincter regulates the duration of a politician's speech.

    I LOVE the King of Spain! :)

    I think my word of the day will be respond, as in this sentence:

    "If Shmi doesn't respond to my emails, she will not be able to get the Taco Bell poster she is seeking."

    The new word for today is Epidermis which means skin.


    As a joke, walk up to a guy and in a hushed tone say "Excuse me, but your epidermis is showing." Then wait to see how many of them will look down and check to see if their fly is open. :)
