Reminds me of the woman who baked into a propellor: disaster


Give a man a fish and he can eat for one day; give a man a fishing pole and he will find an excuse to never work again.

Shouldn't that be, "Dis is de Forest primeval?" And since de Forest is the guy who invented the triode amplifier tube, his first ones were primeval.

DISSIDENT One opposed to the chief executive or someone who insults teeth.

Hey Hab - your last few are pure gold. I was thinking about how hard it is to come up with new stuff in this game, because there are very few DIS-words we haven't covered but your creative minds keeps pulling out new surprising ones. It reminded me of a couple of years back when I tried to create a new branch of words for us to play with using the A- prefix which is also often used as a negation prefix, as in Atypical, Asexual and Amoral. It didn't get embraced by too many others, and then it just popped into my head:

AMORAL - Morning blow job

Greg, I concur - which means either with dog or against dog. Not sure which is current, which is $75 per month. Anyhow, Hab's nothing if not brilliant. But so is this guy: https://www.ashleighbrilliant.com/
