phanerogamous - loyalty to one's audience above agents, teams, coaches, and even spouses or children.

Britney's phanerogamous behavior gave her the ultimate hold on fame, since her audience would buy any magazine, go to any concert, or purchase any product with her name or likeness on it. After a while, even the papparazzi were tired of her willingness to pose, but the money for taking her picture was just too good to turn down, so they continued to congregate around her, track her movements, and sell her image.

It is time for the obligatory judging of the suggested improved uses for the word "sexpartite". Overall, I find the awesome responsibility of the naming of award recipients extremely intimidating, what with so much utter brilliance, so little time... Alas, let us get down to it.

sex·par·tite (sks-pärtt)
adj.
Composed of or divided into six parts, as a groined vault.

Now what on God's planet earth is a "groined" vault?

Perhaps YsaPur can enlighten us, as her definition makes use of the term:

03-20-2008 12:29 PM
sexpartite n - a petite party for three couples under a groin vault.

This definition earns YsaPur EsChomuw the Sneaky Marcus Award for unabashedly peeking at the definition during the competition.

Trisherina earns special recognition for offering a definition that most all of us can relate to:

03-27-2008 12:06 AM
sexpartite: A person who talks about intimacy at a rate of frequency about six times greater than the rate of engaging in it.

As such, I am pleased to award our meretricious dilletante with the coveted Marcus Truth Squad Award.

Moving on, in the category of pathological conditions, we received a number of very clever, seemingly experienced definitions. The winner is seebe:

03-28-2008 07:53 AM
sexpartite - The name of an operation to separate fused testicals from the perineum.

After the sexpartite, John couldn't wait until he healed so he could stop waddling like a duck. Now, he thought, if only I could break the habit of quacking when I see bread crumbs, maybe everyone would finally stop calling me Daffy.

Seebe's creative spelling of "testicals" earns the inimitable Marcus If-you-can't-spell-'em-then-you-must-not-have-'em Award.

Moving on to the realm of the not so unbelievable, lukkucairi snags the prestigious Marcus Wretched Excess Award for this offering:

03-27-2008 12:40 AM
sexpartite: careful styling of the pubic hair, often utilizing mousse.

Just when we thought we had enough things to worry about, xfox reminds us that space for "private" parties is limited.

03-21-2008 09:51 AM
sexpartite v. when the world runs out of room for "private" parties.

Mother Hubbard knew her lack of control might lead to sexpartite.

For thus sounding the alarm, xfox takes home the Marcus Nagging Concern Award.

All of this takes us to the awaited announcement of this week's big winner. The Marcus Vegematic Award, the daddy of all awards, goes to Coffee with a major assist from YsaPur EsChomuw for an imaginative and innovative product idea:

Yesterday 06:49 PM
Sexpartite™
Sex glue, from the makers of Loctite™ thread locker compound.


Today 09:55 AM
Ink and Psniff were disqualified from the Annual Slovak Sex Marathon because Coffee the Mistrustful discovered they were using a banned substance, Sexpartite™, to hold them together during the race. The two of them were later surgically separated by a team of experts, though with dubious results, as they left the hospital as Pink and Sniff.

Coffee and YsaPur share this week's grand prize, and I leave it to them to figure out who gets to keep the trophy and who gets to select our next word.

With love to all, I had better light out for the territories!

phanerogamous adj

the indecisive state whether one lives monogamous or polygamous;
derives from Phan and Ero, a couple which became immortalised in Old Greek literature,
filling more papyrus rolls with their complicated love life than all classic epics in total,
though their turbulent stories being not as well known today


Their private detective office has recently specialised on couples having phanerogamous problems.

I've almost done it inadvertently myself a couple of times, 'tho. You get to this point of judging fatigue in the middle of it all, read it through before posting and then go .
Because, you know, it's all so crucially important and life-impacting and stuff. Coffee - he's the smoothest sailor in a slick bunch

Sorry YsaPur...getting back on track...

phanerogamous 1. adj. - describing that which resembles the tiny lever that cranks certain manually operated music boxes. 2. describing the mixed feelings of nostalgia, confusion and irritation that arise when listening to several music boxes at once. phanerogamite, phanerogamosity.

The miserable clerk in the "Days Gone By" store at the mall eventually had to be let go because he fell prone to surges of phanerogamous panic several times a shift whenever shoppers played "Eidleweiss", "Love Story" and "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head" simultaneously.

phanerogamous adj Of or pertaining to an organism endowed with three sets of sexual organs, one of each gender.

Leslie conceded that being phanerogamous did have a number of advantages at parties but was quick to add that rarely had anything ever progressed beyond heavy petting.


(To Brynn: Sorry for my oversight.)

phanerogamous

The condition or practice of prefering a single verbal abuser during a period of time.

Brynn respected Captain Coffee's phanerogamous practice and refrained from jumping on the "Damn that damn Coffee for absconding with the Trophy" ship.

phanerogamous - happy about or eager to do only one thing. See also "serial phanerogamy", happy about or eager to do only one thing at a time.

Coffee, faced with the choice between the trophy and the judging, phanerogamously took the trophy.

phanerogamous - n. 1. A prehistoric reptile having two large horns and a massive, constantly erect sex organ. Despite its menacing appearance,the species was believed to have been ill-adapted to an environment of quicker, more supple predators. Archeological evidence suggests that extinction of the phanerogamous was largely due to its slow, waddling gait and its tendency to become permanently lodged in its partner during mating. 2. A rare species of Hungarian beetle, referred to colloquially as a "cockchafer", the appendages of which have become highly valued as a remedy for male erectile dysfunction.

The Most Enthusiastic Britney Fan Award of dubious value goes to Marcus Bales, together with a life-size poster of his phanerogamous object of adoration.

Stephi, the Well-Versed in Old Greek literature wins a never-ending roll of papyrus to make discreet use of when sitting on the toilet.

Brynn’s detailed definition and vivid description results in the suspicion of frequently experiencing phanerogamous sensations wins her a musicbox-patterned straitjacket to use in times of need.

Lukku gets The Seer Award and a medium to communicate with her beloved spouses when feeling phanerogamous. And, because I feel generous today, a small and a large as well.

to overcome any feelings of incongruity hypnoplasm receives several photographs of dentures in unusual places to be used for shock therapy (flowerpot, frying pan, stuck between buttcheeks, microwave, jam jar, toilet bowl, just to mention a few...)

omg, this made me laugh so hard...
*serious, almost solemn face* treekisser, you are reprimanded for overusing the cluster of sounds “erect” as well as for endangering the existence of innocent and innocuous beetles that, because of your dictionary entry have been hunted down for their alleged qualities, thus becoming nearly extinct. Oh, and two posters of those creatures to download and make use of in times of need, when they become history, just like the phanerogamous...

The winner is lukkucairi with treekisser and xfox as her entourage

Oh, I forgot the real definition
phanerogam n. A plant that produces seeds.
[New Latin phanerogamus : Greek phaneros, visible (from phainein, to cause to appear) + Greek gamos, marriage; see –gamous.]
adj. phanerogamic or phanerogamous

Well, some of your definitions were seedy...

Now, lukku, don't pretend you haven't noticed!

lukkucairi is the winner lukkucairi is the winner lukkucairi is the winner lukkucairi is the winner lukkucairi is the winner lukkucairi is the winner lukkucairi is the winner lukkucairi is the winner lukkucairi is the winner
