Being first has some appeal.

@Doug's definition: beautiful

Appeal -- In-law, I question, for sure to the real family, yes.

Appeal -- nothing appeals to me today, I must have a s**ty outlook. Can't be the things.

Appeal -- doesn't ryhme with apple but does ryhme with repeal.
You know the twins, Appeal and Repeal?
You can tell, I'm back, and even posted a couple of blogs today.

Doug's definition holds much appeal. Now try explaining it:)

I appeal to y'all to buy my book. Think I have to take a master workshop for the finer points and the contacts

Have appealed to the King of Chick Lit's guilt and like for me to take me on

if you put it after the s word, that's what can get you a raise, the best table at a restaurant, and send you laughing all the way to the bank

-giggles over the puppy's definition-

Doug's definition is appealing. So much so I appeal to him to define appeal for me because...again I got nothing. How unappealing.

I appeal you, you appeal me.

What Groucho Marx was fond of leering.

True story, huh, Doug? Is that the one O. J. Simpson is still looking for?

APPEAL, v. t. To strew banana skins in front of the office doors of lawyers, plaintiffs, etc. foolish enough to think that they've secured a verdict. The banana skins, of course, are gold plated. Which explains how it is that some verdicts actually stand.

VERDICT, n. True story. Really. You can look it up.

Doug The Una said...

I hear that first thing every day, Joel.

Thanks, Ariel.

Welcome back, Jim.

TLP, admit it. You had help with that one.

Pia, I have the money out, just waiting for someone to take it.

Karma, Salami Appeal?

Quilly, aka preaching?

Puppy, I thought it was how you blend it.

OK, Jenn. For you: APPEAL, n. Lipstick in a photograph, laughter across the bar or teardrops at home.

Brian Barneyo Marx?

Amoeba, I guess it's all about where you leave the banana, huh? Dad said so, too.

Nessa said...

A peal of applause for Doug's definition.

A peal of laughter for all of the banana jokes.

A peal of bells to end the day.

Minka said...

appeal,v.t- looking up knowing you have to go way down

Doug The Una said...

Keeps the doctor away, too, Actonbell.

Tintinabulate, Nessa.

Minka, there's more fun on a sled than a staircase.

I can't tell you the JOY I feel at being able to be back online!!

Well maybe with the help of today's word I can:

It's very appealing!!

Our internet access died on Sunday evening and was fixed this evening. Praise be to God and the internet guy too, also, in additin, as well.

Awww...that's so sweet. Although let's scratch the tears.

Appeal: common euphemism for when someone accidentally chokes on the wrong part of a banana

Doug The Una said...

J.D. I'm glad you're back. I was about to send spytruffles.

It's yours, Jenn. Do as you wish.

OE, I bet that happens to secret agents all the time, huh?

Nessa, I'll get it.

Did Mr. Banana tell you that, Puppybrose?
