Wahl! I swanee.

I don't rightly know rather to be elated or deflated!

At the KU Round Table, we couldn't find half o them words in our Funk & Wagnalls.

Orvis is of the opine thet orotund might be kin ta ornate but we ain't sure what thet means either.

Finis thinks he 'members sumtin 'bout Stegano sum'tin or other being sum kinda big ole lizard thet might a lived in these parts sometime afore Adam got his half acre.

Bottom line is we think thet maybe the Lexicon of the Great Wooded South has gotten around us someways and we might outta have a refresher course from the good perfessor.
