Fair Venus, speared by diomed,2009 Update: A humor for which humanity's bilious disposition and melancholy nature have rendered us too dry a host, leaving only he who waxed most prideful ichorous.
Restrained the raging chief and said:
"Behold, rash mortal, whom you've bled-
Your soul's stained white with ichorshed!"Mary Doke

ICHOR, n. A fluid that serves the gods and goddesses in place of blood.

Icarus was a discussion topic over the weekend. Waxing politic?
Ichor: a word that Spell Check rejects. But I don't care. I like it anyway.
Ichor--icy whore; an oxymoron except when it isn't
Dodger fans bleed Dodger blue; Angel fans ooze ichor.
I shouldn't comment first, ever. I forgot which blog I was at. Nobody pays attention to Krauthammer around here.
(And the Yankees are the best team in baseball. They ooze 2009 World Series Championship).
iCHOR, n. The lifeblood of e-commerce.
The Yankees are the best team that extortion can buy. Their days (and those of their criminal compatriots) are numbered. Or ours are.
Waxing his ichorous must be like choking the chicken.

"ICHOR, n. A fluid that serves the gods and goddesses in place of blood."
So it's really beer then?
No, most Omnipotent Poobah ... at this point I think we're talking Peach Schnapps.
Ichor - the stuff that comes out of monsters -usually it is black. Stephen King writes about it sometimes.
"So it's really beer then?"
Nah, I've tried tasting mine, when I've cut myself in the past. It really tasted more like Enzo Boglietti Dolcetto d'Alba Tiglineri 2003.
ichor...Schwarz-beer in Prague!
just trust me on this!
Karen, politics is best left unwaxed.
Lily, I don't see how you write your books without it.
And when is that, Pia?
They ooze, Karen. I'm with you there.
Amoeba, we aren't doomed, but it feels that way reading the sports page.
Maybe, Icy. Why would someone choke a chicken?
Bear, because I know you I will trust that while I have no idea what Monika's dress has to do with anything, the meaning is good natured.
I'd have to think so, Poobah, yeah.
Well, or that, Karen. But for me, I'm with Poobah.
True, Terry. So does Lovecraft. Usually sticky and black.
Haha, Cooper. Do you donate by the carafe?
Minka, I'll trust you for now, although I look forward to a second try at Prague.
yes good natured-though bill may not
see the humor-well enjoy the day-have to go-420 issues to deal with.......PEACE
The Ichorous mortal was dead, alas, soon.
