I don't feel like trying the word today.

I thought antipathy was an Italian starter for people with lisps.

Doug said...

Giddyup, Helen!

TLP, antipathy got you too?

Dom, how've you been, friend?

Sar said...

*giggle* Dom's comment is really funny!

I'm having a brain dead morning, so I'll just leave it at that for now.

some kinda pasta!

Antipathy: losing one's way to here.

antipathy, n. cinnamon to me. I always utterly disliked the smell of it. Once I tasted it and discovered the only allergy I have is against this spice. It can kill me and I hate it with a passion!

Bierce was funny!

S's longwinded sarcasm:
Antipathy, n: What all rightheaded progressives feel about conservatives, and what all rightheaded conservatives feel about progressives. Syn: nausea.

antipode of empathy is antipathy

AP3 said...

Tom & Icy, my head is spinning!

After last night's debacle, all I can think of is that (today) antipathy = my job.

GABRIEL C. ZOLMAN said...

Antipathy, n. That which will rise against empathy in the Last Days, during the Tribulation.

I'm getting a head start.

great definition, doug! I'm definitely against all suffering (including going to work), so that is my chosen form of bigotry.

Jamie Dawn said...

I think the word "antipathy" sounds too pretty. It should have a harsh sound, like Hitler in his speeches, in order to match its definition.
It needs to have a gutteral edge to it. There's nothing intense when you say "antipathy."
That's just what I think.

Fred said...

Antipathy: Trying to say Auntie Patty with food in your mouth. Lots of food.

Doug said...

Sar, it was funny wasn't it.

Sreekesh, you plagiarized. Please rewrite.

Dddragon, glad you made it again.

Monika, I'm sorry to hear that you're allergic. I promise not to praise beautiful, delicious cinnamon in your presence.

S, you must follow politics closely.

Yes, Icy and it really unblocks the old sinuses too.

Aw,, Aral, it's tough when you love your work and the people act like jackasses. Why don't you set up a blogboard?

Gabriel, you will not be outdone.

Actonbell, I see you're a connoisseur. Excellent selection.

You make a good point, Jamie Dawn. Henceforth, in this realm antipathy shall be referred to as "nastykopf."

Alice, it feels so good to be misunderstood.

Hahaha, Fred.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

I've thought it over carefully. I'm neither for nor against antipathy. Or bias. Or any of these statements above.

I'm not moved either.

Doug said...

Ah, TLP, you meant apathy. Who cares.

Just like a tree, g.d.

weirsdo said...

It may come as a suprise to you and you're readers, Mr. Dog, or Pimpy, or whoever you are, but I don't actualy CARE who Auntie Patty is!!!! I am really sick of you paying so much attenshon to long words and never telling about Ann Rose's Piercing's!!!!
If your so smart why don't you make more money????!!!!!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Oh. MY. god. *slink away, so embarrassed.* I did tell you about my dyslexia, right? I was able to cover it up until I was 63 and 3/4 years old. Then people began to notice it.

Sad. Just pitiful.

Minka said...

Doug, that is so considerate of you.
I wish you many happy and active bees in the near future!!! :)

Doug said...

Pansi, I'll look for something more germane for tomorrow.

Naw, TLP, we all have our days. What's aixelsid?

Haha, thanks, Monika, honey.
