APPEAL, v.t. In law, to put the dice into the box for another throw.
2007 Update: n. The advantage a true story holds over an actual event.
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.
At PHOTO PLACE and LITTLE BLOG.
Appeal: Italian for what the bell does for you: itsa apeals.
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
appeal v.t. to beg, corporate-style; also known as advertising
the bigger the banana, the greater the appeal.
or so i've been told. ; )
-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.
I hear that first thing every day, Joel.
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.
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.
appeal,v.t- looking up knowing you have to go way down
Keeps the doctor away, too, Actonbell.
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
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?
