This word is as ugly as the organs that it describes.

I would like to say it is entirely useless, and a remnant from another era, if there were only a word to describe it...

cowardly words

Okay, so if you're going to say something is cowardly, try this great word:


But don't, under any circumstances, use the word pusillanimous. I don't feel the need to explain why.


I never fatigue of this fantastic word.

Muy Bién

I'll tell you what, the Mexicans sure got it right when they invented the word "Bueno", that is one bueno word to say.


Learning about your body.

I loved my college human anatomy class. There are some great sounding body parts that could also be lairs for evil villains

like the philtrum or the caruncula.

But there are some body parts that are so evil I shan't say their name in public.

( Uvula, I am looking at you, and don't even get me started on the word "nodule")

In other news, did you know that most amphibians have a nictating membrane? You didn't? that's because your biology teacher was too shy to say that word.

Also, remember when the rappers would say "Insane in the membrane, insane in the brain!"

Um, you know they are not the same thing, right?

I can't believe I just wrote that.

Going Anakin

I'd like to introduce an new phrase into the American lexicon:

Going Anakin

When a show with a beloved and well-respected mythologies over-explains it in a cute, and unnecessarily detailed way (Like when a powerful and mystical force becomes simply the actions of midichlorians, and the darkest villainof all time(s) becomes pie-faced kid with a whiny voice).

Example: "Last weeks episode of LOST totally went Anakin with the light cave."


The last episode of Battlestar Galactica was awesome until it went Anakin in the last fifteen minutes.

Sometimes the mystery box needs to stay a mystery.

The Worst professional sports franchise

Prolly the worst name for a professional sports franchise is The Nuggets.

Think about it

When I hear the word nugget I think of two type: Chicken and Butt

gold isn't even on the list.
