Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

An ambiguous object. Possibly:

a) a cigar because one end burns like the fuse on a cannon
b) a blunt (cigar filled with weed) because after you smoke it you're head is going to explode.
c) any form of firework
d) a penis, cause after you suck it, it explodes in your face
e) a person, because they could blow you to bits in some way (pwn you)
f) the muscles (usually arm) of a person, because cannons are just bigger guns
g) a firearm, preferablly the one you use to kill the person using this ambigous word in front of you. Don't use this word, people will have no clue what you're talking about.

Awesome and amazing guy. Always there for you... and will do anything he can to make you happy. Extremely good looking and a flirt. The perfect boyfriend and the guy that every girl goes to for comfort and advice. Cannons are usually the dreamy guy that every girl would kill to have... but they never admit it to his face. He is always the one you want to be snuggling with because he knows how to handle a girl.
Girl 1: Who's the new guy?

Girl 2: I don't know... but he's gorgeous.

Cannon: Hey ladies (flashes a smile), I saw you too radiating beauty and I had to come introduce myself. I'm Cannon.

Girl 1: (whispers)- figures, Cannons are always the hot ones.
