  1. I love salopettes, poor pets!

  2. Hilarious and a great choice of words – gotta love the bookish sextodecimo, and hylomorphism. A lift on the rampage, great 🙂

  3. Schlicker! LMFAO! it could also be a very drunk person trying to say liquor!

  4. Wappenshaw made me giggle – hylomorphism is, according to you, the definition of my recurring nightmare. Thanks for putting a label on it. 🙂

  5. Hahaha! Lindsay Lohan would fit a couple of those. The hylomorphism and the holotype. (Sorry fans, just had to go there.)

  6. sextodecimo – yep just the best word ever, lol. Well done 🙂

  7. Really good. I took one of my manuscripts and gave it a good mammock. Then I pulled my top off and fell into a hammock. I wasn’t sure at the time that my actions were all defined.

  8. So great! Who is buying the next round of drinks? Are we nuts?

  9. Mr. Webster would be green with envy? (a different shade than our green hero, of course!)

  10. This was great, Ionia. Very well done.

  11. Wappenshaw! Maybe we should do a fun ‘make a funny definition’ post that people can play with. People are having a lot of fun.
