10acious

(in Borge's inflationary lingo that would be 11acious)

[and Borge reminds me of Ernest Borg9]

Most people use baking powder as 11ing agent in quick breads.

BranShea remarked parenthetically, "Hog seems to have passed away."

I would happily offer up one of many obscure words that I have at hand; but the last time we had a game of hogwash® here there were only five(5!) players, and 8 the time before that. this cuts into the fun, and is discouraging to the hogmaster, no doubt. (Jackie?)

just for reference, here's a link to a favorite round from the past: cilli (14 entries)

edit: speaking of "all tolled", which I used pointedly in that link (and it's not that often that I expand/expound on my quirky comments); I seem to remember another post from the distant past where someone asked about the use of "all tolled" versus the more usual idiom "all told". the answer he was given (and I'm sure he's long gone and there's little chance he'll ever see this), as I recall, was that he should LIU in an eggcorn data base. while arguably a correct answer, this would have been a more helpful and more interesting one: all told

howsbout the Latin version, Ninus, then? : )

Ninus Minus or Ninus Mores?

That's what I meant. The Hogmaster 's still there but the Hog seems to be gone. Yes, I think they were great, the old ones ( washes) when the minds were young.

Hey, doc, that's cheating! And very clever cheating, at that! laugh

is discouraging to the hogmaster, no doubt. (Jackie?) Nah--I just figured it wasn't the time to have a round. However, I've not run one since! But all poled, I'll go along, sure.

Yes, maybe it would be useful to ask a PM from interested partipants before you start any work on it. And maybe it is not the right moment.
