I wanted the Epilady.

Ha ha, funny thing - I'd met a swarthy young man one night who was cackling over his drinks about how much money he was going to make off of this simple gadget that cost all of four dollars to manufacture, but he would sell it for eighty to rich women everywhere. He was so right about that. He would use his own extremely hairy arm - randomly dotted with square patches of baldness - to demonstrate it. He also moved aside the bling on his chest to show the same phenomenon there.
I often wonder what to do with memories like that.

okay, Hfox, my dear good man, while we're all breathlessly waiting for you to give us the real definition, here's a word to play with:

feijoada n. a losing round in Scrabble, even with the extra letter for which no one is the wiser.

feijoada (n) an Axtec spitoon.

Blanche was transmogrified with horror when Gerald, caught without a napkin and finding the pickled salmon hors d'oeuvre not to his taste, made good use of the Weatherby's recently acquired 14th century feijoada.

Feijoada n. The gruesome mating dance of the South American Latrodectus hasselti spider

...The Spanish assassiness was nicknamed 'Lady Feijoada' due to her penchant for seducing and decapitating her victims (not necessarily in that order).

feijoada: Peasant flatbread popular among the domestic servant set in Dar es Salaam.

Dahir loved her, loved her saucy head-swivels whenever he tried to catch her eye at jamatkhana, loved the curve of her hips and loved her perfect feijoada.

feijoada- origin. Japanese.

English pronounciation- Father Yoda.

Def. The name of the infamous Ninja in which Yoda (Star Wars) is based of of. A great role model...

Feijoada - The strike force of the vegetarian command; also an individual within that strike force.

The vegetarian command was in a stew about the way Brazilians were combining the healthy bean with the forbidden pig, and sent in a team of feijoada to take out a few leading restaurants as a warning to the rest.

Great round! I'm making no promises about judging soon, but it may be sooner than you think....there's certainly plenty here!

Feijoada


Ancient assassination sect of Hindus. They killed by boring their victims to death with lame impersonations of Pat Morita as Mr. Miyagi in The Karate Kid.

After one last mumbling of "Wax on, wax off." Tujinder's work was done and the sahib dropped to the floor.

feijoada - Portuguese for "sudden growth", mostly translated as "green thumb".

What Senhor Dinzdale most admired about the youngest Nolan sister was her feijoada.

feijoada - a structured, statically typed, imperative, and object-oriented fluffy robotic chinchilla that is currently all the rage in Japan.

After Keiko's new feijoada was taken out of its box and she named it "Lovelace", it proceeded to upgrade her ram, reorganize her digital photos and take control of the operations of her local general aviation airport
