Redefining misanthropy for a fresh generation. Standard posts begin with a definition from Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary followed by a modern adjustment. Miscellany on Wednesday and storytelling on Saturday.
I'm in a predicament.I'm first & I don't know how to handle it.
People still believe when they go to ballot booths?Granted they might not believe their vote will count or anything--but just to believe in somebody or something has become behind my scope
PREDICAMENT, n. A gentleman with the blues. PRECONDIMENT: An undressed hot dog. See also Condoleeza Rice in the Middle East.
PREDICAMENT n. a precipice of indecision.
I have no idea how all these naked men got on my computer!
A ballot booth before a believer: That's ABBBAB for the beaurocrats. Other than that I don't understand your modern definition.Predicament: I'm having an unpleasant, troublesome, and trying experience figuring out what to say about this word (from which extrication is difficult)...BTW, did you notice I'm back from Guatemala?..
Ariel, such a predicament. Luckily I'm here - shield your eyes!
predicament: when you can't be sure how it is going to turn out.predictament: when you decide to shoot your mouth off anyway.
Predicament: foreskin dipped in Wintergreen Schnapps?
Wow puppy -- I am gob smacked and impressed
Ariel's definition wins the Jamie Dawn FIrst Prize Ribbon for her hilarious comment.She's got LOTS of splainin' to do!
Jamie Dawn, when you can log into comments before the others, then you will be a grasshopper.Pia, I have no consolation to offer except you're not the first cynic. Welcome to team Dawg.Amoeba, I'm looking for a connection between Predicament and Precondiment and simply can't see one. Huh.Biercean, Quilly. Good job.Ariel, I'm terribly thankful no one was around to hear me laugh at that.Jim, one of the not-so-well kkept secrets here is that sometimes I'm lame. Bienvenidos a su hogar. Did you visit the caves at Coban or climb a volcano? Eat a tamale with chilis in the masa? I guess I know how to find out.G, way to take one for the team.Mutha, I'm not sure if that's a predicament or an x-chromosome.Neva, I'll that was either a funny pun or a recipe for the Mengele Mojito. I'll trust its the former.Mutha, I don't want to know what Gob Smacked means. You people are worrying me.JD, I second the nomination.Actonbell, I suppose your running shoes are in the trunk, huh?
*bowing* to Neva! That was awesome! I'm not even gonna try after that one.
i considered going for something less, shall we say, provocative, but then i had this image of something, um, er, ah, sexually refreshing, and my comment went downhill from there.that said, i'm SO freaking sorry. won't happen again. or maybe it will, but you'll be in on the joke, and therefore will find it... funny. Predicament: stuck between a rock and a thick skull.come on, Mutha & TLP, let's go find the "rowdy" crowd... ; )
Douglas, should i cut the red wire or the blue wire? please tell me what to do.Ariel: i'm hacking into your computer right away! :))kixmh: kicks my ass
The Detroit Lions are in a bit of a predicament... they've won more games than they lost since at least ten years ago!
*hands him a gherkin*
What I get for trying to post in the wee small hours of a Hawai`i morning before two plus hours on the bus to work, dawg. I was thinking Nixon, the tricky ...
Caught between a cougar and a crone? xoxo
TLP, another round?Neva, I know how to party! Trivial Pursuit?Karma, which one provides the most support?Karen, I'm old enough to remember the Rosie Grier Lions. They never have to win again.Thanks, Minka. Why does it smell like almonds?Amoeba, I hear you brother.Mireille, that's no predicament. It's barely a choice.
I have a predicament too. My bro might be really upset if I RUB IT IN HIS FACE THAT THAT PATRIOTS ARE GOING TO GO 16-0 THIS YEAR!AND... SOX RULE!
at least my bro has the satisfaction of my typo
Thanks for the ribbon and all, it's big comfort. :-)
Predicament: something I always find myself in with creditors due to the fact that I have very little wages.
Sis, Sox fans generally have thick skins. This is marginally better than the Colts going 16-0.Ariel, may it keep you warm and safe on cold, dark and windy Hungarian nights when the vampires throw off their disguises and the socialists re-elect.Lily, if they believed in God they'd only loan to the wealthy.
Doug: "Gob smacked" is one of my very favorite English expressions meaning "surprised," "shocked," or "speechless" -- but literally "smacked in the face."
Sorry - tripped on a pesky cabbage and couldn't make it to the comment section in time. Such a predicament.
I'll keep that one, Mutha. Thanks.Terry, I've learned to be readable by cabbages.
