6. Don't be an idiom
Only crepuscular holepunchers like yourself look for dirty meanings in words. I think you LIKE jactations like this.

Your probably one of these people who like to gesticulate in public so that everyone can see whether you're circumscribed or not.

What a potsticker.

11. Dingbat. It is actually a device used by typesetters back in the old days
to hold paragraphs of type in place to print pages of books.

I remember there was a Southern Republican who criticized his opponent by saying he had matriculated in college and that his sister was a thespisn.

14. How can you say that about Robb?
Just kidding, Robb! (I think he's still a mod.)

I've heard the matriculated/thespian story variously attributed to Lyndon Johnson and Huey Long. There weren't any Republicans in the South prior to 1970 (apart from good ol' Strom of course). The folks at the Snopes board say that though it was famously attributed to a guy named Smathers in a primary race against Claude Pepper in 1950, Smathers never actually said that stuff: http://msgboard.snopes.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=g... ;f=101;t=000379;p=0

20. Yeah, I think it's just a story, but it's a good story. I also recall
that he told his audience his opponent was a homo sapiens.

25. Carbuncle doesn't just sound like an insult, it's an excellent one, bunion.
