    Being dumb means never having to hear how stupid you sound when you blather about malapropisms.

    I think he has one of those calenders which provides him with a five dollar "word o the day" accompanied by it's definition.

    The use of his word malapropism is almost appropriate for this thread. But since it barely applies, the irony of it all is ...well....rather humorous to say the least. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    Some of the most dumbest are the better educated. Education does not always = smartness or practicality. The higher the IQ the more of a disability it can be.

    When I found out I'll let you know. But when that time comes you'll have to promise me that you won't use your newly acquired scholarly super powers to harm others. icon_lol.gif

    I can tend to guess the meaning of words because of my connection to the Spanish language. Since it is heavily Latin based you can get a feel for what words mean even if you don't have a dictionary.

    Malapropism has "mal" which in Spanish and Latin means "bad." So already you can tell that it's not a good word or a compliment.

    Apropiar in Spanish is just like appropriate in English. Such as to designate or to be fitting for something. Put them together and it's the poor fitting or use of an action. In this case, the misuse of words.
    Well hell, who needs a calendar when I've got you?! icon_surprised.gificon_lol.gif

    I'll have to figure out later if that's a good thing. Maybe in the shower in the morning.

    Hmmm I meant blessing in the not so Jesusy sense. More in the multiple hot guys with intelligence sense. Or something. icon_neutral.gif
