RETRACTIONS (A Regular Feature):

We would like to retract everything we say in the Wacky Times.

To complain, write your congressmen (as if they would care). No part may be reproduced without the permission of the publisher, who isn't likely to grant that permission without some pretty big incentive. To secure permission send a suitcase of cash to the publisher. The publisher assumes no responsibility for unsolicited material.

TODAY'S VOCABULARY LESSON

 

What does the prefix "de-", which you find in the words decaffeinated or derail, mean?

 

Our inexpensive dictionary says: "away from; also to form a word reversing or undoing an action, such as decentralized or decoded."

 

With that in mind, here are some new words (and their meanings) to help improve your vocabulary:

 

Debarked–successful dog voice training

 

Debased–a downsized military

 

Deliberated–imprisoned

 

Delighted–darkened

 

Deserved–cafeteria style

 

Deranged–cattle in pens

 

Demoralized–Hollywood

 

Degraded–pass/fail (not to be confused with "detested" = auditing a course)

 

Devoted–ignored all of the candidates

 

Denominated–Forbes, Lamar, et al.

 

Designed–deaf person's cold shoulder

 

Decal–U.S. after the "big one"

 

Decadence–ain't got rhythm

 

Decent–broke

 

Debasement–home on a slab

 

Deducted–no air conditioning
