Adopt a Word

Who knew that there were so many unwanted, unloved words just waiting for homes? So many locupletative vocabulary words with which to enhance our blateration that may go the way of the ten-cent store if we don't take a stand with our sospital acts on their behalf. "How?" you may ask. By adopting a word! Go to and you can adopt your very own word! You can use your word in your everyday speech, in your writing, emails, texts, or poems. You can use it to name a pet or a boat. You can even get a tattoo of your word to help you remember how to spell it. Your word doesn't care how you use it. It just wants to be needed. It doesn't cost any money, and you'll be making a huge difference in the life of a neglected word. It takes only a minute. Just a minute of your time to save a word. Please. There are so many words just waiting for your love, and many of these words have so little time left. Please act today.

Thanks to M.A.S. at for alerting me to these words' terrible plight.

My daughter and I adopted the word "snollygoster" today. We're so proud.


  1. Something is VERY wrong.
    I commented last night and the slate is blank.

  2. Hey, I adopted assectation just because it has 'ass' in it.

  3. I'm doing some pimping today and you're one of my bitches! Come check it out on my blog

    Now get out there and make us some money, dammit!

  4. Thank you to Mrs. Hyde for mentioning me in her blog! Check out her blog "A Bitch Called Mom"

    for some honest, funny, and thoughtful stuff.

    I adopted a word too. It's sesquipedalian. It means " a type of person who likes to adopt words" (no not really)


Rant with me. Come on, you know you want to!
