Adipose, adj. too much of a questionable thing. (adipose lawmakers - ugh; adipose chocolate - impossible)

ad-i-pose: one's fifteen minutes memorialized for all time in a staged advert

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Adipose, adj., from early Fat Cat.

Describing a cushy job in politics. See Pork Barrel; further def. at: Pigs bellied up to said barrel.

adipose,adj. I'm with the other guy in saying : too much of a not so good thing.
It could also be looked at in the context of governemt agencies and from which I hear they are cuttiong off their adipose as we speak just like human beibgs do these days.

Adipose: The secret ingredient distinguishing a truly tasty burger from it's current 90% lean counterpart.

Doug said...

Dddragon, here I thought too much of a questionable thing was an answer.

Hey! A Piapun!

TLP, I had a feeling Government might come up today.

Alice, government agencies are looking pretty adipose yet. Too much protein, in my opinion.

Bless you, Sar.

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

It seems they cut off the "good adipose" it there is such a thing.

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

Or maybe it is sinmply a matter of transplanting the adipose to different parts of the body.

Doug said...

Alice, believe me, there is. And they do, usually to the head.

Jamie Dawn said...

I WILL NOT use this word for self-deprication.

Adipose: All my tissues are adipose-free. That includes my adipose tissue.

There, I gave myself a compliment.

Adipose: (n) A politically correct pose for female models showing no breasts, and leaving no possibility that the clothes will fall off accidentally. The kind of pose you'd expect from your Aunt Adi.

Doug said...

Thank you, Jamie Dawn, I saw no need to be self-deprecating with this word either. I'll give you a compliment, too: You look lovely in your recent pictures from your trip. Attention commenters: It's Love Jamie Dawn Day.

You're right, Gabriel, if it weren't for our bellies we could probably get the great apes to take up a collection on our behalf.

You raise a good point, Indie, hiding implants just makes no sense from any angle.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Really adipose people have their uses. In jokes mostly. Respect for the adipose is hard to come by.

AP3 said...

I feel kinda ignorant 'cause I never knew this word before!

Doug said...

Tan Lucy, here's an example. On my second date with my most recent girlfriend a topic was unfulfilled fantasies. Mine was (Goa'uld and Bookworm take note) I wish I could play a jazz horn. She looked at me a second and said "Well, you look like you could be a tuba player. I was still laughing two days later when I asked her out again.

If it makes you feel better, Aral I just learned the word watching Deadwood along with a few other words unlikely to be posted here.

LeesahEm. said...

But the other deadwood words are so much more FUN!
adipose-the stretch of tissue between my actual thigh and my worldly thigh, see also jiggle-flesh.

Sick blogging-- my funny is all stuffed up. (As to my regular daily contribution: blame mediocrity)


Adipose, Saint. The patron saint of the United States. He cloaks special protection over both the restaurant and diet industries. Plastic surgeons and comfort slacks manufacturers regularly offer prayers for his intercession.

actonbell said...

Is it adipose, or is it panty hose?

remember those commercials depicting a little girl at the zoo with her mother, and she [the girl] points down to the elephant's baggy 'ankle' skin and says, "Look Mommy! Elephants got wrinkly ankles, just like you!" (I think it was a Legg's hose commercial about better-fitting hose.)

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Doug, so did she say "yes" or what?

Anyway, YOU are not a joke. She should have known never to judge a cover by it's book. You're a good book. I also think the cover is pretty cute.

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

I'm kind of in awe of your fantasy.

Doug said...

True, Masil. I think they have the best scripts ever on TV and it's stunning that they can accomplish it with 2/3 cussing.

a4g, I think that's pretty good actually. I'm glad you and God are back together.

Wow, Actonbell, that's taking me back. I remember wondering what the big deal was.

TLP, we dated five months several of which were happy. That wasn't a poor me story. She apologized for the line for a week. I remember telling her that if I had stayed slim I'd never have known how funny people can be. Thanks for looking after me, though.

Yeah, Alice, I wish you could see it with me. I am so cool!

weirsdo said...

Type of indisposable tissue or bulging deposit, difficult to withdraw.

karma said...

adipose nekkid if i wasn't so fat

Doug said...

Weirsdo, that goes well with today's post.

Karma, how about I'll be the judge?

Oh Good Lord!

I thought I had commented to this post, and when I looked tonight to see it (nothing like seeing your name in print on someone else's blog, kind of like listening to your own voice), all I saw was a "comment deleted by author."

I wasn't sure if I had accidentally deleted my own post, or if His Dougness had deleted it.

And then I mixed it up with the definition from a few days ago, and thought maybe I had committed some kind of blogger faux pas. So, I did the next logical thing.

I sent Doug a cryptic email questioning him about me offending via text.

So now, with this comment, I'm not only the crazy-and-long-ass poster, but I'm the weirdo who goes blogging while too tired to think straight and making a huge thing out of nothing and then writing about it.

Because we all care.

Pass the Nyquil.

Doug said...

Not to fear, Revi, that was someone correcting their spelling. I'm sure there are many blogger faux pas(es?) but I don't know what they are and don't care.
