Graffitis



Is "graffitis" (rhymes with tonsillitis) a word? If not, let's make it one. It can be defined as:
A condition marked by a compulsive need to write all over everything.
Right now this city has graffitis out the hoo-ha* (or gump stump).

* I'm also trying to revive the career of the existing term, "hoo-ha". It's a good'un and needs a little love. Your homework for today is to use it three times in casual conversation.

  1. Can I make a small suggestion? Hypergraffitis: ".....a compulsive need to write all over everything", outdoors. (not be confused with hypergraphia)

  2. Oh, one addendum to that. If you're up to any "hoo-ha", you might be a "hypergraffite". No?

  3. I'm going to have to politely disagree with you on the revival of "hoo-ha", I think...

  4. [Lori]: I love the term hoo-ha and use it all the time! Yes, really. I thoroughly support your project and will increase my efforts. Rest assured hoo-ha is alive and well in the midwest.

    Isn't that "hoo-ha" an Al Pacino: character actorr thing? (Not from the spectacle that was "Cruisin'" but some other "piece" of his ??...)
