Wow, two very good definitions.
*I bow to Doug and Ambrose.*

Weak try:
Insurrection,n.,
An attempt to correct the correction.
See Get outta here.

A new product to rival Viagra?

Insurrection. We insure results. (Check your inbox for spam.)

Doug said...

That's hilarious, Icy! Good girl!

TLP, this is a no bowing zone but thanks. I like your definition, but I'm holding my back rigid.

Hahahaha! Aral! I haven't been offered that one, yet...By the way, you should listen to Sar's story. I'm thinking the two of you in a radio play.

AP3 said...

I just listened to Sar's story -- it was great! I'll have to cook up something for "Doug Drones On" someday.

Sar said...

Insurrection: The feared reaction to my little story from the audience accustomed to Doug's proper storytelling; thankfully pacified by the likes of Doug & ap3. :)

Jamie Dawn said...

I find the word "insurrection" revolting.

Placing bets either way on the Last Judgment?

dddragon said...

good gods, the first thing that popped into my head is pornographic, and I haven't been able to think of another thing to comment with. Been trying ALL day.

I'm surprised that 3D didn't mention Star Trek: Insurrection--If a planetful of people can be forcibly removed from their world, destroying their way of life, where does it end?
OH! Now I know what she was thinking!

Doug said...

Aral, any day will be grand. Some day soon even better.

Sar, I'm not sure you were wrong.

Jamie Dawn, excellent wordplay!

Alice, what could you possibly know about that?

Weirsdo, I may be pansified. We talkin' Dante?

Well, Dddragon, you seem to have gone a similar route to your baby sister and with a better excuse.

Pia, we're talking screenplay I presume.

Haha, Actonbell.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Great comments today. Well, of course, everyday, but even better today.

Insurrection, n. One more than La Cosa Nostra, one less than a dictatorship.

weirsdo said...

Doug: Rather than combine insure with erection, which was already taken, I clumsily tried to combine it with resurrection. Your Pansification is fully justified.

To make amends, I have another: Election monitoring in Japan.

Doug said...

Thanks for the pats, TLP. Thanks for taking part.

That's pretty funny a4g. Irony is hard to blend with arithmetic. Well done.

OK, Weirsdo, that's wronger but funny.

AP3 said...

I see that dddragon had the same demented reaction that I did...

Shirazi said...

This was new to me. I know more now.

Doug said...

Yes, Aral, but with a different inspiration, I'd wager.

Shirazi, I'm afraid you took fruit from the wrong tree. May be just as well, though.

Insurrection, n. A play of both middles against the end.
