limnophilous, n. - an enzyme which impedes digestion. Furthermore, when added to milk, it curdles it instantly. The dietary technician who isolated it was sent scrambling back to the drawing board when his supervisor exclaimed, "Acidophilous stuff I ever tasted!!" :eek:

limnophilous: Possessing an enviable characteristic that allows one to behave outrageously from time to time with impunity.

That limnophilous bastard Geoffrey beat me out for Regional Manager despite being caught groping the CEO's wife at the Christmas party!

Alas, it is time for the judging….

The actual definition of limnophilous is occurring mainly in standing waters, but also found in flowing waters, and it is unusual in the fact that it contains four consecutive letters of the alphabet (mnop).

After ballet class, Blanche could feel the stranger's wandering, limnophilous stare penetrate right through her Danskin and legwarmer combo; later she would swear to friends she could smell the irresistible aroma of Vick's Vaporub as she returned his gaze.

Marcus_Bales steals the Van Gogh’s Ear award for:
loving drawing or portraiture.

Though it took years of effort, Jackson Pollock overcame his limnophilous tendencies.

And congratulations to daverbee, who is awarded the Cool, Man award and First Place for:
Brother of noted jazz innovator and piano legend Thelonious Monk, Limnophilous Monk distinguished himself as a band leader and triangle player.
As there was little call for musicians who could improvise on triangle in the halcyon days of Bebop, Limnophilous' career was brief.
His remaining days were spent in Wyoming where he called the cowboys in for dinner at the Rolling R Ranch.

More cow bell !

pabulous adj.- to be paunchy about the waistline with self-esteem still intact.

People gaped at George's pabulous physique beneath his bare midriff as he gracefully moved about the room like the Greek god he knew himself to be.

pabulous adj. when functuation is used to define emotions. :D

"Hey, you guys rock!" exclaimed Chris, when one post became more pabulous that the last.

trisherina 01-01-2006 01:01 PM

pabulous: Describing teeth appearing capable of managing little more than rice cereal.

His hair was hoary with tangles, his uneven stubble two weeks shy of being called a beard, and pabulous grey teeth peeked out between his cracked lips.

Zatoichi 01-01-2006 01:15 PM

pabulous -- adj. (from fabulous + pablum)

A term used only when 'damning with faint praise', especially as when speaking with children and wishing to retain a smidgen of honesty.

"How do you like this new Backstreet Boys album?", queries Tyke.
"Oh, it's just pabulous!" answers the Old Man.

In spite of Zeno's warnings, after the fifth beer, Michael not only had to pee really bad, he'd become pabulous.

Specifically drinking Pabst (or is it Papst Blue Ribbon Beer?) ;)

A beer-drinking couple's bizarre
Relations began in a bar:
Their love-making arts
Were propelled by their farts
From their favorite beer, PBR.

pabulous (a) neologism created in the 1960s by the advertisers of Pab, a new washing powder, for which it was decided there was no existing English adjective sufficiently superlative to capture the quality of the product.


Gosh, Joan, I wish I could get my Jim's shirts so white and.. and.. and..

Pabulous!

Did you say fabulous?

No Pabulous! And Jim's shirts would be pabulous too with new Pab washing powder!

Gosh, do you think so?

Trudy, Pab is no ordinary washing powder, it's got space age technology built right into every granule to ensure your husband's shirts are as white as they could possibly be! Look, there's even a rocket right here on the box! It really is...

Pabulous, Joan?

*laughs* Oh, Trudy.
