Magnificent

MAGNIFICENT, adj. Having a grandeur or splendor superior to that which the spectator is accustomed, as the ears of an ass, to a rabbit, or the glory of the glowworm, to a maggot.

2008 Update:  Depleted of notoreity by the gas of an enthusiast's account or the the edge of a surgeon's blade.  Indifferent.

hhhmmm... too many of our politicians have a habit of being magnificently indifferent to the requirements of their office. Exhibit A: Mr. Stevens.

err, tu, rabbit?

MAGNIFICENT, n. The American dollar. Which buys now what a penny would buy a mere 100 years ago.

MAGNIFICENT
magnify scent
the practice of certain bakeries, restaurants, and other public eateries to vent their cooking odors, unfiltered, into the surrounding neighborhood -- which also helps magnify their stacks of cents.

Not insipid.

Yes, Karma!

Wow. No one mentioned that I was missing a word. You guys are polite.

Actually, Poobah, for a pun that's pretty good.

Pia, a woman with no idea is magnificence itself.

Sauerkraut, I can think of a hundred examples in the Senate alone.

TLP, I subrscribed to several like that but the renewal cards had such small letters.

Jim, I think we'll meet in the city. My place is kind of boondocky, which in LA, means a long drive.

Amoeba, you're tempting me to quote from Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.

Exactly, that many, K, and Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen were magnificent enough for the other 5.

Hahaha, JD. Safe travels.

Quilly, that's a fine habit.

Weirsdo, that was the standard although I think the advent of blogs has lowered it some.

Ariel, I'd have bet you were a fan of that film.

Ariel the Thief said...

No so much a fan but I kinda like it.
