Is this a ruse?

Zealot!

I have removed “ruse” from the list. I will keep on doing this untill the above list has been reduced to nothing. I didn’t think the scrolling would be such a job though.

I’m sorry, you have to use “zealot” in a sentence and it musn’t seem too contrived!

You zealot! An abominable, abstruse aspersion unfit for an iniquitous aardvark! This torturous tripe is sure to be nothing more than turbid tyranny! (That’s ten, no?)

What have I done? I’ll have to neglect my other posts for a long, long time! Yisty!

Whimsical wraith! You’re Byzantine blandishments castigate you to pluck words from this robust, inexorable list until it is expunged! (I’m not going to tell you how many that was! This is fun!)

You have no idea how I have to scroll up and down like a raving lunatic. I’ll have to open two windows. One for editing my first post and one to read new replies. Please be patient, I have no assistants but I’ll catch up with in due course.

I’m taking a break now. I’ll be back at 8pm.

Beg the moderator to flounder this or you’re doomed to dourful doddering up and down this list. (only two there, both d’s) :wink:

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m quite ambivalent to this thread. It is nothing more than a caper concoted by cabal of bumptious Forumosa denizens.

I am wont to yammer sometimes; but even so, with reverence I beseech our triumvirate of feckless, yet stalwart and venerable, moderators to cease being so complacent and redouble their efforts to give the OP his comeuppance.

Eradicate this egregious thread; it is hardly a Herculean task.

I beg you all to abate at once! Do not aid and abet this vile thread, but hold your sentences in abeyance. I find it abhorrent! If you cannot abide by my request, you should proffer abject apology - or at least perform ritual ablution for your sins. I hereby abrogate all responsibility for further posts. I wished to be abstemious, but the abysmal list has forced me to accede. I have become acclimated to the accolade with which fellow posters are wont to greet such ideas, which they would disdain if one were to accost them with same in the street. The sheer accretion of alphabetic vocabulary necessarily prevents me from being more suitably acerbic; truly it is the acme of timewasters, worse than Sudoku. However, as a keen acolyte, I was forced to acquiesce at least once.

Is this thread a new nadir? Or a zenith?

OK, I’m up to date again. Hit me!

I like rice.

Aaahhhww, how come rice isn’t in the list? It is a crap list.

I bet kerfuffle and brouhaha aren’t in it either.

The serpentine septuagenarian succumbed to the subversive sortie of the scurrilous sentinel after having supplicated the sultry sycophant.

HAIKU!!!

Oh baleful barbs,
Blazon my bellicose bile,
Build my blasphemic bliss…

Cheers!

To my chagrin, I bemoan the arduous task of scrolling up and down the cornucopia of words provided by that churlish charlatan Aubrey in order to post some hackneyed drivel.

I detest having to go back to the first page each time to consult it; that is anathema to me.

Forumosans, be not timorous; in earnest I exhort you to hasten the demise of this sham through verbose and voluminous postings so that we may supplant this subversive thread with one more Spartan in its vernacular.

Do not treat this vocabulary game as though it is sacrosanct.

It is ironic how diligent and indefatigable one must be to indulge in this menial, mundane morass of churlish musings–ostensibly soporific, but incredibly superfluous. How droll.
