Where do you dump the bag after you finish brewing?

Oh, and Jerry, I am verrry unsure about this, but is it: Geomorphologists?

I hadn't heard of it, but I see that it is the study of the evolution and configuration of landforms. Can't say that I've known a geomorphologist either! Roll Eyes I found morph and then ologists and put them together.

GEOMORPHOLOGISTS is correct, Kalleh.

How about TABUCURARES ??

If you haven't met one of them, you're fortunate.

We understand, Ros. As Tinman once said here, it's too bad that work gets in the way or our posting!

Jerry, really there ought to be a word "bleepershrine!"

I am still working on sagslicer. [It isn't "cigarless," is it?]

...it was meant to be asparagus. Guess I was rushing again, and careless. (hang-head-in-shame emoticon)

You think I can get away with claiming it's "one asparagu, two asparagus"? Y'know, fifth declension, long u ?

Well, to be honest, I had a hunch that it might really be asparagus. However, I knew that I was dealing with a true logophile here, and I just couldn't make that assumption! Wink [And, that's a compliment, too!]

Now, KHC (so good to see some new people here! Big Grin), I did like your magazine title!

Fortunately I skipped the halftime show, stripper, streaker, and all. But in general I thought the commercials were disappointing and in poor taste. Particularly the flatulent horse, and the brawling oldsters. And the game itself was not a sparkling performance on either side, either, even if it was exciting.

(But look at all the potential anagram words in that paragraph!)

Good one.

If one I were an A it would be HARLEQUINS

(Actually, the offense was pretty good, at least in the second and fourth quarters, but the defense was definitely not up to its usual standard.)
