    Also how many words must we learn that mean kinda-sorta the same thing? Can't you teach us some other words? Maybe some fruit based words or something?

    I've noticed all of these words are to do with negative personality traits. I'm beginning to think this isn't really about improving our vocabulary.

    Oh no I can fully appreciate "kittens" being a lovely positive word.

    YOU on the other hand, Willbert, put "gravy". How do you explain THAT? :sulk:

    My passive-aggressive word of the day is:

    Stevedore
    ste·ve·dore
    [ˈstēvəˌdōr]
    NOUN
    1. one who works at or is responsible for the loading or unloading of a ship in port
    This is, of course, not a dig aimed at anybody, however I will still tag @Pembers just to make sure he understands it the next time I refer to him as using this term.
