    If there is anyone else out there who enjoys playing with words, I offer you this - Impressive sounding Latin/Greek wording for common expressions. Dazzle your friends at parties!

    Monolithic biavicide: killing two birds with one stone
    Felinolingual seizure: cat got your tongue
    Chronopantraumatherapy: time heals all wounds
    Vitrodomopetrojection: throwing a stone from a glass house
    Xanthogaster: yellowbelly
    Postovular gallinomics: counting your chickens after they hatch

    Why, Thank you, Ma'am, you are a princess and a scholar, and your generosity is exceeded only by your good looks and your grand personality.

    LOL, Hobie those are some tongue twisters! The only thing that would dazzle my friends is the number of knots tied in my tongue trying to spit that tangle out! Wowzers, who talks like that?

    Phraseology can be just as much fun using only English.Such as "In polluted purgatory without proper means of locomotion".
