Wait! Listen.......its the sound of dead air.

Okay, thanks, Coffee. I won, but you should've.

nepenthe, n.

a form of remorseless nepotism

mildred threw aside all notions of nepenthe when confronted with dixie may's accusation. "how dare you!" she shouted, her ample face turning a bright shade of red, while she dug her fists into her pudgy sides and extended her torso trying to appear taller than she really was... "harold may be my son, but he also baked the best pumpkin pie this country fair has ever seen - he has earned the blue ribbon!"

nepenthe - a concoction of tar and pitch in which rags were soaked to wrap around long wood sticks to make torches.

Firstly, apologies and regrets to Coffee, whose fine entry should have been my second choice, and at the very least not dismissed out-of-hand. Mr. Coffee, sir, I un-disqualify you, and pass you the rest of my delicious peanut clusters, as penance.

Okay then,

nepenthe (adj.) - flat broke in Glathgow.

nepenthe: In pre-Hippocratic medicine, this little-known bodily humour was thought to be excreted by tissues in response to resentment left unexpressed for the sake of a greater good.

dddrum 10-18-2005 12:46 PM

Oops.

That's right, and we'll all be better off if I don't bring up how annoyed that makes me.

Say... what's that oozing out of my innermost core, there?


(Um, has anybody got a Kleenex?)

Yrs,
DDD

Marcus Bales 10-19-2005 02:30 PM

Nepenthe - The sudden realization that a Kleenex isn't going to do it, and one will need either a torniquet or to file an environmental impact statement and get help from the brownfields fund to clean it up.

xfox 10-20-2005 11:50 PM

Booty call
 
Nepenthe n. (Greek ne-not, and penthos, grief) Something, such as a drink or a drug, capable of making one forget suffering.
