  • I love this! Cool!

    One question though... does OEDILF stand for "Oxford English Dictionary I'd Like to F***," or is it just me?

  • Wonderful!

    Chained_bear, you're a sick pup. I like that in a person.

    Actually, I think sionnach's referring to the Omnificent English Dictionary In Limerick Form. True, sionnach?

  • Yup, that's the one!

  • What fun!

  • You know, this site is called Wordie. You have to forgive me if I really, honestly thought "OEDILF" could stand for "OED I'd Like to F***." I mean, where else could something like that come up? Are you my people, or aren't you?!

    Though I really love this poem. And I had no idea there was such a thing as the Omnificent English Dictionary In Limerick Form! How todally awesome!

    And what an adorable little briddie, too.

  • Oh, the unbearable coolness of it all!!!

    October 13, 2007

  • Yes, yes, we're your people, chained_bear. For better or worse. ;->

    And the best part is that it isn't finished yet because people are still writing it! Which means...oh, we're in trouble!
