Define-a-Thon Tonight At Word Books

It has come to my attention that Word Books will be hosting their first Define-a-thon this evening at 8:00 p.m. What is a “Define-a-thon”, you ask. Well, the email I received announcing this event sheds some light on this:

Move over spelling bee. Just because you can spell a word doesn’t mean you know how to use it. From the editors of The American Heritage Dictionary comes the DefineaThon, a competitive word challenge.

Illiteracy is a sad truth in our society. Little brains trying to use big words (our Chimp in Chief immediately comes to mind) is another. Go to this event. Maybe you’ll even learn a new word or two to perplex our fearless leader with.

Nothing breaks Miss Heather’s heart more than telling someone to go fuck fornicate himself only to get a blank expression in return:

An insult is a terrible thing to waste.

If the previous isn’t sufficient motivation for you, dear readers to attend the Define-a-Thon maybe this is: I have been told there will be prizes for the winners.

  2. i wanted to go. i thought it’d be like balderdash though, but i think the questions are multiple choice. i guess that is kind of like balderdash. but now it looks like i’m having dinner with my dad. if only he was getting here earlier he could go with me! we’re a nerdy family, i think we’d kick ass.

Tell me what you're thinking...
