Bait

Bait, n. A preparation that renders the hook more palatable. The best kind is beauty.

2005 Update: v.t. To divorce will from judgement. The intransitive form is Shop.

For Pansi, Anlocken

Bait,n., Temptation. For every person there is one which that person cannot resist. Why resist? There will always be another one.

~Daydreamer~ said...

Bait: A woman's or a man's attitude to make someone fall in love with them.

Yay! I'm the second comment here.

You never told me Doug if you actually love Cinnabon ;)?

karma said...

the one link between the seeker and the seekee

knqxhhdu: kings and queens know the early bird gets an incredibly stupid worm

Doug said...

Yes, Tan Lucy. Or hundreds.

That's an excellent question Marwa, and I'm delighted you stopped by to ask. The only cinnabon I see is in Sacramento airport. By walking fast and thinking about public policy I usually get past it without stopping.

Karma, I see you don't believe in handcuffs.

Quick poll: Who here thinks verifiers are more annoying than spam? I'm on the fence.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Well, I frequently can't get past the verifier. Couldn't get in to comment this morning. So, I e-mailed my comment to Aral so that she could post it for me. But other than this stupid PC problem that I have on and off, the verifier is okay. 'Course, Aral might not think that! LOL

Minka said...

I seriously was wondering what "anlocken" was doing there. Five minutes later, I realized it was the German word for bait.
It is so the time for me to have a short trip to Germany and connect with my roots!

bait,n. according to some: something the American government had hanging on a pole -disguised as hope for safety from terrorism- to hook its people to support a war that was not justified.

mireille said...

um. bait: Old Spice! Yum! zockso!

weirsdo said...

Prelude to switch.

Doug said...

TLP, do you think Aral would post my comments too?

Wie lustig, Monika! They got our library cards, too.

Mireille! I ran out of turpentine.

Bait, n. A word crying out for a definition, hung daily into the waters of the internet. Attracts the grouper, the big mouth and the occasional snapper and roughy.

(The urge to feed can only be a-bait-ed by the cruel vagaries of career.)

GABRIEL C. ZOLMAN said...

Bait, n. That which some pursue to their own detriment, and others master to their own blindness.

Doug said...

a4g, great definition. You left out the irony of a clownfish tossing the line.

Gabriel, I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to stop commenting here. There could never be a more perfect Gabriel C. Zolman entry. *bowing**bowing again*

Rio said...

usually myself, out and about or down and out, waiting for the perfect tackle

weirsdo said...

Oh Mr. Dog!!!!! You dint forget!!!!!!! I will aks Mall Diva to give me a Unlockin right a way!!!!!! Should it go thru the tongue, eye brow, or lip??????
Uropian's have grate fashon sense!!!!!!!!

pia said...

Bait: to hold out hope that tomorrow will be a day where people and dogs can once again rule

Doug said...

Rio, even in cyberspace you're a peril.

Of course not Pansi, I promised you today's post would be a one-syllable word and more germane. All the captists in Peteysville couldn't have kept me from the promise.

Pia, its nice to see bipartisanship.

Jamie Dawn said...

Push up bras, stilettos, well placed addition in Jockey shorts, flashing of cash, ...

I choose word verification over spam because wv makes me annoyed, and spam raises my blood pressure. My health is at stake.

Sar said...

Bait: A Black & Red Stiletto as opposed to a sneaker.

dddragon said...

Bait: the thing that TLP won't take.

Doug said...

Thanks for your vote, Jamie Dawn, and for showing such sensitivity in your wardrobe.

Sar, you must be fishing for women.

Dddragon, you tried and I appreciate it.

actonbell said...

bait-a vending machine, to people on a diet. Maybe the Pope could offer some solace.

Andrew Donaldson said...

Bait, n. A thing which immediately precedes a stabbing pain, jerking around, gasping for breath, and eventually death. Also, something to catch fish.

Dusty, daddy of Icy said...

The sweet aroma of a poodles butt.

AP3 said...

I don't mind at all, TLP!

No, Doug, I will not post for you! ;-P

This word just makes me keep thinking "master".

Actonbell, almost anything to a person a diet. With me it's leaves or better.

Hey, Andrew! Good of you to come back and funny definition.

Good dog, Dusty! I can only imagine.

Aral, Gabriel got there ahead of you. And why not? I thought we were friends.

Alice, I'll turn the verifier off for awhile. Maybe that's what's making us so mean.

AP3 said...

Oh, yeah, Gabriel did beat me... to it. Well done, Gabriel.

Comfort Addict said...

The apotheosis of speciousness (tastes great, more killing).

GABRIEL C. ZOLMAN said...

What can I say? 'Tis not science which blinds me.
