How about a word from each and we have to use both in the same sentence?

H.F. - I bow to the superior winning definition, and wholeheartedly believe that urosthenic is a perfect word to inspire another round . I'm not awake yet, however, to contribute a definition for it, but I will later.

So Brynn doesn't want to contribute a word to the first Double Dictionary Game, huh?
OK:

urosthenic

A prosthetic device for men which allows the user to pee a stream twenty yards long.
Useful if one wants to make yellow snow but it's too damn cold to go outside.

Yes, that coveted second place grows more valuable hourly (stretches luxuriously).

urosthenic (adj.) - 1. barely there, wispy, vaporous 2. ghost-like
3. (informal) preternaturally thin due to excessive liposuction


"Blanche, " screeched her best friend Caroline through a mouthful of shrimp remoulade, "divorce completely agrees with you - why, you're looking positively urosthenic!"

Exclamation recycling bulk of previously ignored definition

urosthenic: From the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV (Text Revision), delusional content involving the genito-urinary tract.

After suffering trauma related to having a heavy gas station restroom toilet seat slam down suddenly on his penis, Gerald suffered a brief psychotic reaction followed by a urosthenic compulsion to dab the tip of his penis repeatedly with toilet paper after urination, even to the point of excoriation.

urosthenic:

Penchant or preference for things Uros, including beautiful and intricate handwork, weaving, spinning, and embroidery, as well as fishing and watersports.

The library displayed Abner and Angelina's travel treasures, and showed clearly their urosthenic taste for knicknacks and hand crafts from natives of the Lake Titicaca area.

urosthenic, adj.

urosthenic language, urosthenic word; a word that has its origins in the experimental polish system thetos that translates written text into sign language, used to facilitate communication between deaf and hearing people.

In the beginning, Marge had a hard time putting to use the urosthenic terminology that seemed strange and alien to her but she soon realized that it helped her to clarify what she wanted to express and her son Daniel to understand more readily what she meant to convey, thus avoiding misunderstandings based on plurivalent expressions.

urosthenic n. A secretly manufactured isotope of arsenic that is the main ingredient in green hair dye. Its atomic weight gives this chemical a highly fixative property and also allows it to reflect a mean green wavelength of light. Unlike its well-known cousin, it has managed to stay under the EPA's radar. The word in the underground punk scene, however, is that Manic Panic's Snappy Apple (green) dye is providing several unfortunate victims with permanent mental vacations.

Is there a saying about the definition being the window to the soul?

The Phrontistery defines urosthenic as "having a tail designed for propulsion".
