    Word of the Day

    Post by wuzfuz on Sat Feb 19, 2011 6:15 pm

    Fluctuations


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I was at my bank today; there was a short line.
    There was just one lady in front of me, an Asian lady who was
    trying to exchange yen for dollars.
    It was obvious she was a little irritated ... . She asked the
    teller, "Why it change? Yesterday, I get two hunat dolla fo yen.
    Today I only get hunat eighty? Why it change?"
    The teller shrugged his shoulders and said, "Fluctuations."
    The Asian lady says, "Fluc you white people too"

    Hey Wuzfuz...
    Don't know where I read the definition, but I've always known 'discumbobulated' to be a confused state of mind.

    I love these unusual words! Such as "nincumpoop' being an idiot! lol!
