Peace

Peace, n. In international affairs, a period of cheating between two periods of fighting.

2005 Update: The stated purpose of every martial leader as weight loss is the purpose of every customer at Denny's, prosperity of the gambler and education that of this writer. Purpose should, perhaps, be the word redefined but by a superior lexicographer.

You sound a little down and depressed. Or just tired. I wish I knew how you can weave sentences like that.

Indeterminacy said...

I wondered about the sentence weaving myself. I suspect he sold his soul to the devil.

Doug said...

Tom & Icy, I don't sound perky? I try to sound perky!

Indie, Tom and Icy: The trick is this: Begin with incoherence and rarify.

Sar said...

I'll attempt to piggyback your last 2 words, though your incoherence and rarification are a tough act to follow...

Their undying ardor for power and might has left the world hungry for much needed peace.

Doug said...

Sar, by they you refer to the illuminati?

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Oh, you guys! Very impressive language.

Sar said...

Are you insinuating there could be a conspiracy?

Doug said...

Tan lucy, our vocabularies are like this!

Careful, Sar! There's Rosicrucians everywhere!

The Devil said...

You got to bear your rosy cross!

Tom & Icy said...

Whew! You take something abstruse and make it esoteric, or is it the other way around? I'm having a mental meltdown. Maybe it's the illuminati that's flashing, or would that be Girls Gone Wild?

Doug said...

Devil, you've done well with that and with the fact that "palms" is the word I expected after "rosy."

Actually, Icy, I take something esoteric, make it abstruse and then set my dog down at the keyboard. Once he got halfway through Much Ado About Nothing before I walked past with food.

Sar said...

Devil - yours would be the witty comeback I was searching for. I owe you one (but I'd like to hang on to my soul if you don't mind). BTW, I'm a fan of your hockey team (that is when there is an actual season).

GABRIEL C. ZOLMAN said...

Peace, n. A concept of the bumper sticker industry, who receive royalties when their said "product" is given "a chance."

Doug said...

Sar, nice, give the Devil his due.

Gabriel, good definition. The whirled peas people are the real scoundrels.

The natural law of the intelligent and understanding (archaic).

Doug said...

Really archaic, addict. "Intelligent" and "understanding" I mean.
