Caprimulgid - One of the tribes of Gaul before the Roman conquest, the Caprimulgids had displaced the Operagamals along what is now the coast between Genoa and Monaco. The Operagamals had defeated the Ostragauls a hundred years earlier. Since the Romans before Julius Caesar hadn't paid much attention to their northern borders for quite a while, they just called everyone they met to the north "Gauls" based on what Strabo had written about the area. The division of Gaul between the Caprimulgids, the Operagamals, and the Ostragauls was made famous by Caesar in his Bellum Gallicum with "Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres".

Caprimulgid - Greek physicist and gourmand. Developed twenty-three principles of buoyancy in vegetables whilst Archimedes was still looking for the soap. Best known for inventing cream-style corn, which was originally named after him, until those bastard Zodiac maniacs filed suit. GOAT, MY ASS! I HOPE YOU CHOKE, YOU WEASELS. AAAAARRRRGGH!

caprimulgid - an archaic Celtic word meaning "just desserts."

The fact that Ian actually licked the frozen pole during recess on a dare and was left to scream for teacher after his tormentors fled his frozen imprisonment was the ultimate caprimulgid for him after violently stuffing a half-eaten orange Creamsicle down the front of Tessie's best white dress and calling her "Booger Tits" the summer before.

caprimulgid the fanciful chapeau King Kong wore in his trailer on location while waiting for the director's call.

The rare sight of King Kong in his caprimulgid was never photographed, however the legend lives.

caprimulgid n. - Any of the poisonous family of plants, the caprimulgiceae, native only to a section of the New World along the Tropic of Capricorn, including the southern tip of Peru, Brazil, and Bolivia, Chile, Uruguay, and northern Argentina. Caprimulgids have traditionally been used as a medicine and folk remedy as well as a poison in this part of the world, and recent studies with the caprimulgid Hunqua Vidrea have shown it to contain compounds which have been found to be effective as an anti-inflammatory agent.

caprimulgid

An insect found on Cabo Verde which has taken to wearing capri pants and sandals. There is an entire industry on the island now dedicated to making teeny, tiny sandals specifically for this insect since it takes a lot of sandals to shoe ten million six-legged creatures.

It's okay. I chalk it up to all the sexual tension on "The Office" that may or may not be resolved in five years. It's driving us all crazy.
