    Poemer and poetrina . two new additions to the English language.
    Somehow… I don’t see them entering common usage.

    “Poemer” is no stupider than “odist”, a crossword puzzle standard….


    ….. or “stupider,” which I recently found in a puzzle too.

    I remember another where the only word that fit the space and the definition of “writer” was “penner”.


    So Agnes can add to the vocabulary if she likes…. she might as well.

    Only flaw is if there are already existing words — it’s like “preventative” (which has same meaning as pre-existing “preventive”).

    The evidence would suggest, Dr. Toon, that English is NOBODY’S first language.

    I love when Agnes makes up her own words. She is actually quite clever.

    “Poetrina” – sounds very aristocratic.

    Where ya been Night?
    Missed you.


    BTW…. thanks but we know that stuff…. most of us are just trying to be funny.


    I’d never say “stupider” if I weren’t making a joke.

    DavidHG … if Smurfette is so dang smart, she could find a village with some girlfriends.

    … no. can’t think of a stupider joke right now. Isn’t that just the stupidest thing you ever heard? Just stooped stupider.

    Sometimes you’re not up to your regular sweet self.

    Agnes would forgive you or else write a poem at you.
