Word of the Day.....

I have a new term to be added to the dictionary.

Tornado Puke:  the collection of debris left by an EF-5 tornado after it attacks a city; may include shingles, dry-wall, glass, insulation, and various bits of unidentifiable things;  often found on cars, tall grass, lots where large solid structures once stood, and inside of drawers and trunks that were closed before and after the storm and should have been airtight.  This substance has a very distinct odor consisting of a combination of wet dry-wall, mold, and rot.  Bits of this substance may be found to linger even after repeated attempts to wash it away.  Caution should be used when attempting to remove this material; preferred methods include q-tips, clorox wipes, towels, brooms, and bulldozers.

Could somebody please call Mr. Webster in their spare time and make sure this makes the 2012 edition?
