    Not trying to resurrect the closed thread about why we can't debate sexuality issues....

    But Padre has earned kudos for this post:
    This was entirely too brilliant for two reasons:
    1.) He (against all natural tendencies) rightly said "AN" Euphemism.....

    (which none of us would do, even though we technically know we should).

    2.) "Twitterpated"....
    The man introduced some ingenuity from Bambi people.....
    Bambi, in order to discuss an issue of greatest importance and sensitivity.


    Padre is the man....
    That is all.

    Post Script:

    I suggest a third reason to love Padre:

    3.) he didn't say " I suggest" Twitterpated....

    he said "I submit" Twitterpated....

    Gotta luv a guy who talks like that. You just do.

    Actually it is a euphemism because euphemism starts with a 'y' sound. Just like 'a unicorn' or 'a uniform.' A yew tree is also a similar sound.

    That's what happens when you confuse a semi-vowel/glide with a dipthong. The YOO is phonetically a consonant, not a vowel. My mistake.

    Inspector Javert, you now have another reason to sing my praises. Please, by all means, continue. :laugh:

    No need ... there's a free referee online. :laugh:

    And that, undoubtedly, does indefinite articles to within a hair's breadth of way TMI.

    My head hurts. :tonofbricks: Splat! That would be a onomatopoeia. No indefinite article needed.

    Welcome to the Mutual Admiration Society (padre division). Please educate us on an obscure part of American English grammar for full access.

    Don't forget to share this with madre. Because behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.

    Don't worry. She's read it. Worse than following this thread was her explanation of indefinite articles, prepositions and the difference between infer and imply.

    Well, that could get deep but just know that "aight" means that we think you're all right.

    N.V.M. I guess,

    Inasmuch as new evidence has demonstrated that "an" euphemism was in fact the wrong thing to say...

    We must hereby demote you from "ultimate kewl" status, to "a rather nice guy"....status, sorry Padre. :tear:

    On the other hand, this demotion may make Madre's life a little easier:flower:

    BTW, its a diphthong pronounced dif-thong, if you remove the first h you have something that you probably shouldn't be personally swimming in public in. :laugh:

    Yes indeed....like living with a gaggle of nuns which probably explains my aversion to Penguins.

    PS : Prisoners of war understand the experience.

    Three minutes into her grammar lesson and all I could hear was bzzz bzzz bbzzzz bbzzz bbbbz bzzz bbzzzz yada yada yada bzzz bzzz bbzzz bbzz......

    It is possible I was distracted hearing thong and became quite... Well, I can't use the word twitterpated while it replaces that other word

    Now we have to find another word for twitterpated. Oh, bother. This was so much easier when we could all be gay and nobody seemed to notice.

    You need to feel relieved that Madre is out there with a Shotgun ...... Ignore the "Rippon" imitation. Either that, or get an old fashioned fountain pen & practice your penmanship while congregating verbs & other such nonsense.
