I learned today that it is a Syberian word. Such a good word.

Re: Word of Today

I should test it...although I can't remember when I actually had any. I think it was bourbon, anyways.

Škoda.
I think Škoda has more-or-less the same thing as the Polish noun spelled szkoda and pronounced in the same way.

But, as we don't know that Š=sz, we pronounce the Czech car brand name as "Skoda".

A little shoulder-moving? Pheeew.

Seems to me, if you want to dance, you gotta drive a Seat Ibiza

Re: Word of Today

Blueberries.

I did something I did not know was possible. I ate too many blueberries. About a kilo and some too many. Yikes.

Oompa loompa doompity doo
I've got another puzzle for you
Blueberries are fine
One cup at a time
Vitamin C without the harsh taste of lime
But three cups will be your doom
Caught in a sleep paralysis tomb
So keep it down to one cup you see
Like the Oompa
Loompa
Oompa
Loompa
Doompity dee!
