Announcing the premiere of Special Guest Wednesdays
Starting today, every Wednesday Waking Ambrose will feature a definition from a Special Guest. The plan is below, but first...
Superstar Lexicogramibob...Pansi from The Pansifiles Yay!
Thingy, n. Like, one stuff. You know?
...and...some lady named Weirsdo who knows Pansi and updated Gymnast! Huzzah!
Gymnast, n. A man who puts his brains into his muscles. The word is from the Greek gumnos, naked, all the athletic exercises of the Greeks being performed in that shocking condition; but the members of the Olympic Club make a compromise between the requirements of the climate and those of the ladies who attend their exhibitions. They wear there pajamas.
2005 Update:A person of any gender who attempts to translate the human form into rubber for the benefit of corporate sponsors. --Wiersdo
How to be a Superstar guest Lexicogramibob: You don't have to be as beautiful and smart and wise and easy as Pansi or as well-connected as Wiersdo. Just leave a comment any Wednesday saying you're in or send an email to the link in my profile. In the latter case, because I may not recognize your email put something in the header so I don't mistake you for a spammer. "Special Guest Definition Aspirant" or "C1al1s 4 cheep," for instance.
Every week I'll choose someone from the list and send them a word not in The Devil's Dictionary to define for posting the following Wednesday. The only rules are no profanity and keep your definition a reasonable length. Please also send a link so I can put a picture of or representing you with your definition. One special guest per week.
By the way, thanks to everyone who helped me wish my dad a happy birthday.
