Capital of Wisconsin and home to UW-Madison, one of the nation's top party schools. Renowned also for its Halloween celebrations, which for the last few years have ended in drunken riots.

Due to this reputation, the word is used at other schools as a synonym for "extremely drunk."

Despite all evidence to the contrary, pulchritudinous is used to describe a person of great physical attractiveness. No one is quite sure why this is, because the word *sounds* like something unpleasant on the bottom of your shoe.

This is possibly due tothe fact that it shares sounds with words such as sepulchre, repulsive, cretin, lewd, and pus.

It's a good word to use when you'd like someone to *think* you're insulting them.

It is in no way synonymous with lugubriousness. But it should be.
My, but you're looking pulchritudinous today!

Firt kid: You're so pulchritudinous.
Second kid: Mooooooooom, Jimmy's calling me names!
First kid: *righteously indignant* I gave you a compliment!

A sale of secondhand items, held in a driveway, garage, or front yard. They usually take place on Saturday mornings in summer.

From rummage sale, so called because it is a sale where you can freely "rummage" (or sort) through things in piles or boxes.

They typically include used clothes, old records, ancient appliances, Happy Meal toys, potholders, small brass deer, broken watches, coffee cups, and "crafty" Christmas decorations. Each sale is different, and finding something good is not a guarantee. (One might argue that it is actually unlikely, as you are sorting through someone else's cast-offs.)

It's main appeal is the thrill of the hunt and the chance at finding a real bargain.
You wouldn't believe the find I got at this rummage today! A nearly complete set of beat-up Beatles albums! AND a broken record player on which to play them!

Cellphone.

Means teddy bear in Swedish. The word refers to a cellphone because of the way some people cuddle and cradle the device next to their faces--like a little kid with a favorite stuffed animal.

Term originated in Sweden, but is taking on a life of its own in the English-speaking world.
