Old words that need a good home

Now that the late political barrage of garbage being hurled left and right is over, you probably feel that you had the scaevity to hear way too much tortiloquy from one too many political foppotees.

Well, take a break if you love the English language and go to this site, 'Save the Words.'

The Oxford English Dictionary is attempting to save thousands of words from going out of use. You can go to the site and adopt a poor lost word. Carmen found it and thought it was hilarious. We are giving great thought to our first adoption.

As an inveterate inveterist how can one resist?

yes - those are all real words. Look them up. Or is that too much boreism?

I haven't adopted one yet but I really liked the ones I used. Especially foppotee.

It almost sounds like 'Jabberwocky'

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
