Ode to the Judge

a tisket, a tasket, a blue and yellow basket
assumpsit, a dimwit
a wet and slimy armpit

Young Marcus: Oh heavens, how much longer must I wait for the judging of this round to happen?!

Walter Brennan: Whoa! Easy there, young fella. Ah reckon s'only been two whole weeks. Assumpsit can't be too much longer.

assumpsit – to evoke expectations of something imminent, and then not delivering for reasons of experiencing power, pleasure, or both and even for some financial gain. (Ah, and in some extreme cases due to unexplainable circumstances. ) Assumpsitting is an often-used technique of religious leaders and TDG judges.

The High Priest, wearing his multipurpose fox cape, thus spake unto the remaining faithful:“people get ready”.
This short utterance was interpreted by the ardent dictionary game followers as the Proclamation of the Upcoming Judgement, but after a week or so they became a bit fidgety, because it was clearer by every hour that they have been assumpsitted* again.



*assumpsat in the KJV

assumpsit – a last-minute submission in a competition the judgment of which has been delayed.

David saw that there still had been no wrap-up at TDG after two weeks, and figured what the hell, he'd lob in an assumpsit.

Then he discovered that everyone lay dead, victims of the worldwide swine flu pandemic.

HIMSELF, he then realized, INCLUDED!

DUNT DUNT DUNNNNN!!!

Assumpsit idly by, the problem continues to intensify.

Hi I've missed this thread. I've missed HFox. I've missed the bus, so I thought I'd pop in for a minute...

assumpsit - an erroneous mind burp that results in an embarrassing social gaffe, as when at a party one issues a hint to the last remaining couple that maybe it is time to go home, only to be informed that it is THEIR house.

HFox chuckled at all the DG definitions, appreciating in his calm and mellow way even the strained ones, all the while unaware that his belief that someone else was judge was an assumpsit.

assumpsit - the act of coitus as performed by a donkey or mule.

"My first time was a mere assumpsit, but I got much better over the years," the little portly fellow bragged to Blanche.
