This is how I picture Willy Wonka when nobody’s around.
Facula also has several other uses, most of which (all?) relate to light in some way. I can’t help but picture some dumb bastard trying to spot one on the sun with just his bare eyes, however…
… and I’m sure SOMEBODY has done it.
And is now blind.
Because they are, let’s face it, very stupid.
As a writer, I relish synonyms. I hate using the same damned word ooooover and oooooover and ooooover again.
I… don’t think I would EVER use manustupration in a sentence. Not even if I’d used ‘masturbation’ A THOUSAND TIMES prior. Synonyms for masturbation should be hopelessly silly, and nothing else.
Gaberlunzie harkens back to the Medieval Scots. Every definition seems to put a new twist on the word, ranging from a wandering vagabond to a licensed professional who has become a beggar. Or that’s how it sounds, anyway. Go ask Sir Walter Scott, he seems to have the best grasp on the word.
Me? I like to think begging is a viable, eight-hour-a-day-with-health-and-benefits career choice. Certainly seen some chipper beggars on Queen Street in Toronto.
This specific definition was gleaned from The Free Dictionary, because, without that SPECIFIC wording, y’ain’t got the same joke, y’know?
I bet a big tooth would be great as a slide.
This word is mostly relegated to animals. I like to think some humans are capable of managing it, however.
I must woefully admit to having been an autotonsorialist during my high school days. Just once.
Those school pictures can never see the light of day.
Though it sounds QUITE Germanic to me, kosmokrator is supposedly a combination of two Greek words: kosmos (the world, the universe) and krateo (to have or hold power). Smack the two together and you get kosmokrator, the prince of this age. How biblical.
So, naturally, the first thing that popped into my head when I read the definition was a world ruled by somebody out of a Gary Larson cartoon.
