READJUST

I was going to make TRADEUPS but that's either hyphenated or too cute or just plain forced...

So instead let's just retire it and consider it PASTURED.

PASTURED

- A

SPURTED

...out of the cow! he he
This word is so funny to me! It's almost onomatopoetic, and who knows what crazy etymology it has! :0)

"to gush out, squirt," 1570, variant of spirt, perhaps cognate with M.H.G. spürzen "to spit," and sprützen "to squirt" (see sprout). The noun in this sense is attested from 1775.

Putting aside who M.H.G. (Middle Heights Germanic?) might be: D to O POSTURE ,thanks for onomatopotamos.

POSTURE

I'd love to make that into PROUST.

"Not Allowed! - that's capitalized!" comes the expected attack.

Okay, okay. I'll just have to change U to I for my RIPOSTE.
