To live is to battle with trolls in the vaults of heart and brain. To write; this is to sit in judgment over one's Self. Henrik Ibsen

Spo-fans – how many of the following words do you know?
6 out of 6 makes you a smarty pants !!!

You are too funny Sir.

Check your spelling.
(It’s the English teacher in me.)
That sounds rude… but sadly…. it isn’t.
June 17, 2011 at 2:37 AM
Nope… I didn’t know any of the words mentioned… Thank you…:-p

You know what they say about guys who show off their asses on the internet…
June 17, 2011 at 4:04 AM
No, I don’t know what they say… and I show off my ass lots online. Do tell!

I can’t run for congress?

Were there words? I was distracted…. 😉

SO FUN!!! Have a great weekend!!! P.S. – while I recognized some of the words, I’d be hard pressed to define them.
June 17, 2011 at 4:43 AM
I suggest you use one or two of them this weekend in conversation, regardless of context or understanding.
June 17, 2011 at 4:41 AM
Dang! I didn’t know any of them but I do know a nice looking butt when I see one. Wow.

Four out of six. You are doing a lot to expand my vocabulary these days.
June 17, 2011 at 5:10 AM
Four out of six for me as well.

Sadly, I knew only 2 of 6 words. And Dr. Spo, while that last picture is very nice, your callipygian assets haven’t achieved their full potential those saggy pants. Find a pair of tighter pants and you would be magnificent!
Please do another post like this in the future; it was really fun. Next time, you must include a “pants” shot which would give your adoring fans the opportunity to be krukolibidinous.

It was rather impromptu. Th last photo was a sudden inspiration from The Muses – or the Skanks.
June 17, 2011 at 5:55 AM
Five out of six, and yes, callipygous is apt.
June 17, 2011 at 7:16 AM
Please, Sir – Like Raybob above, I knew 5 of them, even before opening up your blog and seeing your illustrative ‘clues’. Does that make me a ‘smarty-SHORT-pants’?
It was the last one that got me. I would have guessed that it might have had a connection with Calliope – but, alas, so wrong was I! However, now that I DO know, what a useful word, even if it is on the sesquipedalian side!

I have been quite irasicble of late. How long did it take to get the right facial expresions? Or is this a natural talent we have here?
June 17, 2011 at 12:18 PM
WORK THAT FACE, Doc! 😀

I know 2 of the 6 words…must go pull out the dictionary now…but I CERTAINLY don’t need a dictionary for the last picture (just wanna pinch it!).
have a great weekend, dr. spo!

Callipygian made me giggle. And I have no idea why I actually know that word. Then again, gambrinous and griffonage are both unusual words too.
June 17, 2011 at 7:47 PM
They’re too hard to remember even with illustration. If I have to learn I’ll choose your butt first 😆
June 18, 2011 at 1:32 AM
My English is not very good looking.
June 18, 2011 at 6:02 AM
I’m not sure if i agree with the ‘callipygian’ definition picture. 😉
June 18, 2011 at 9:28 AM
It’s the lighting!

This was kind of like Reader’s Digest’s “it pays to increase your word power.” Only, usually I know most of them. I only knew 3 of your 6. Keep up the good work. This is good brain activity for me, as a senior citizen who needs to exercise the gray matter a little more! BTW, good “butt shot.”
