fucoid adj. - describes any offer that is deliberately futile, doomed to rejection, but coyly offered anyway.

Everyone in the kitchen knew that Blanche's belated offer to do the dishes was especially fucoid in light of the fact that they'd already been at it for half an hour.

Employee's have speculated that that is how the company actually feels about them...a giant "FU"

ineluctable - going first in a game or endeavor of many participants wherein being overlooked is important.

Even when Trisherina was but a child, she had profound insight into human nature, and when dodgeball was called as the recess game, she was always ineluctable as the first dodger, secure in the knowledge that the undodgeable barrage of balls would be reserved for the players behind her.

ineluctable - either "unlickable" or "unelectable" in sign language, but one would need binoculars to know for sure.

ineluctable

Inability to have luck.

Eunice after 40 years of trying to get a jackpot, in complete denial of her ineluctable nature, purchased and scratched off her 12,584th losing lotto ticket, tossing away yet another dollar into the super secret US ex CIA agent retirement entitlement program.

ineluctable: a word used exclusively by the Bush adminisration to describe Al Gore's situation in the 2000 presidential election.
Bush to Karl Rove on the eve of the Supreme Court Ruling: "Quite simply, Turdblossom, we need to make sure that Gore remains ineluctable"


*okay, so maybe its a little too easy, but I couldn't resist using Bush's nickname for somebody in context!

Ineluctable

1. A state of complete blankness whilst playing a Dictionary Game.

Daver was ineluctable when it came time to present his definition.

2. Being at a loss for words.

Try as he might to come back with a clever retort, all that came out of Daver's ineluctable mouth was, "Ukk...ukkk...uhhhhh."

3. George Bush's condition whenever he is confronted with a situation in which he has to think for himself.

When asked about political favoritism, President Bush ineluctably responded, " !" which caused snickering all around the press conference.

Ineluctable (adj) unable to be well lit

"Finally we reached the hall, each of our separate minds tightly gripped by the darkest of expectations, and each fearing to behold a sight that it could only dare imagine in the vaguest terms. But gazing into the great hall, we saw nothing disturbed. Everything stood, solid and resolute, in the precise place that it had occupied not more than a few hours ago, and for all we could see and know, for many years preceding that. Suddenly a sharp cold draft descended upon us from above, and with such a force that it extinguished all our torches in its passing. And it seemed then to my strained mind, as if this icy gust had lain in wait for our arrival, like an insubstantial cat, crouched and tense in the air itself, before it sprung upon us, around us, and through us, and indeed through our very souls.

We were standing now in darkness, only the four large windows overlooking the lawn revealed themselves, in palest grey. I felt the fear rising in my body, and the room now seemed as if a flooding cave and the black cold water of the earth was rushing in, determined to have us. It was a sound that then dragged me from this fantasy of terror and into a terror altogether more real. The sound was of a long scraping claw or hook dragging down the distant wall, catching and tearing the paper as it went. Then the sound of a chair knocked to the ground came and I felt Emily now close beside me, and she let out a small low cry, almost a moaning. I could not imagine a more fearful and pathetic cry could come from her body had she been face to face with Death itself. But Emily's fear had awakened a courage in my own heart and I fumbled in the darkness to relight the torch, and finally succeeding I held it aloft to light the room. The damage we had heard was clearly evident, but again the room seemed still. I held the torch as high as I could but nothing out of place was to be seen. I took a step forward, and Emily, fixed to her spot, released her grip on my arm. Then I took another step. Emily then pleaded with me in the strongest terms to stop my advance, begging me to remember I had obligations to the living as well as the dead, but something inside me had now gone past all reason. Moving along the room, I advanced finally toward the edge of the large table and I knew that whatever it was that had killed poor Richard could only lie in the shadow beyond the edge of that table. I took one more step and leant forward, the torch held high, and I saw the shape of that thing, dark beyond all fathoming, like a hole without end, ineluctable..."

"The Event At Maystone House", Charles Wyatt, 1873.

ineluctable - unwilling, uncooperative

Despite his initial confidence, and his best efforts, and an entire tube of KY Jelly, Vice President Dinzdale finally had to admit that the eldest Nolan sister seemed ineluctable.

ineluctable unable to provide French boys with a second hyphenated name

Fortunately for Captain Picard, his parents had not been ineluctable when naming him, or else he would have been simply "Jean Picard", and not had the name to support his Federation career.

ineluctable - preference for one kind of oomphalos over another.

Davers' eyes were drawn ineluctably to her perfectly-formed belly-button.

ineluctable - ene·luc·ta·ble
Pronunciation: any-'lek-t&-b&l
An absence of emotion
Function: adjective
Etymology: Middle English, from Old French, from Latin: ene of none and lucialis to delight.

O'hara's cabbage stew proved to be just the ineluctable treat we all thought it would be.
