In a 4x4 game I played FLAWIER for 12 pts and new best/longest records.

Definition of Flawy
1. Adjective. Full of flaws or cracks; broken; defective.
2. Adjective. Subject to sudden flaws or gusts of wind.

Why say, "That tent looks subject to sudden flaws or gusts of wind." when you can just elegantly and succinctly say, "It looks flawy."? (probably get some strange looks too) lol

Thank you for the laugh

Gotta love the words out there. Some to laugh at. Some to wonder at. And some to just confuse you.

Enjoy!

MINIVETS

After finding it, I was wondering what exactly a minivet is. (A small veterinarian? A small veteran?) Turns out it's a kind of bird.

Lol. My veterinarian would get a good chuckle from this, too.
Thank you DrP, especially for including the link and information. The picture shows a beautiful creature and it appears to even have some personality.

Enjoy!

EXPERTING. (I looked it up. Expert is also a verb: to act as an expert. Huh!)

I think everything is a verb these days (including the word verb), in usage if not in a real dictionary. EXPERT becomes a verb by verbing the root. I assume that we could also noun verbs.

It's hard not to be EDACIOUS when the food is delicious.

Here's a new one on me:
buffaloberries

It's a shrub with berries. I thought it must be something else, but I was wrong.

I've heard of those. Salmonberries grow around here. If they were the same as what you thought buffaloberries are, they would be really hard to find.

I admit it. Every time I see this post, my mind shifts to Mordred's "Seven Deadly Virtues"song from Lerner & Loewe's Camelot (and it doesn't even mention gluttony). Next it's "C'est Moi," followed by "The Simple Joys of Maidenhood," etc....

I've really enjoyed this post !

Enjoy!
