    They're working sequentially; they're at the at- words now.

    Before you pfft something of this nature, I suggest you write your own dictionary from scratch and see just how easy it is.

    my sincerest apologies

    i failed to notice that i personally affronted your hard work by pasting a link. such hard work should be commended.

    kudos to you on your pasting abilities - all should revere them.


    on another note - calm down, it was mean as sarcasm, don't know why you have to be so ........y about it.

    besides, the faq of that site seem to reveal some sense of humor:
    Q: WHATTAYOU, NUTS OR SOMETHING?!

    A: Aside from being nuts about the English language, no, not really. We love words and we enjoy writing limericks. This project is the inevitable outcome of the pairing of those two factors.

    Seeing as how the door is currently open to at- limericks, I just joined and submitted the definition below for "attacked." I shall attempt to devise more in the moments to come.
    Sleeping bags and a tent they had packed
    Many oodles of food they brought sacked
    They put out the fire
    And began to perspire
    For three big grizzly bears then attacked
    Any thoughts?

    I just added one more definition
    it's perhaps just another rendition
    from my silly brain
    that's probably insane
    be assured I have other conditions.

    Our atrium's the core of our home
    It's surrounded by house with no dome
    Laying naked there's fine
    Until choppers fly by
    And remind us we are not alone
