From: William Saffire's On Language Column, Sunday NY Times -
Here is an excerpt from a 1994 New Yorker article by Jack Winter: "I was
furling my wieldy umbrella when I saw...a descript person, a woman in a
state of total array. Her hair was kempt, her clothing shevelled, and she
moved in a gainly way." His reaction: "I was plussed. It was concerting to
see that she was communicado, and it nerved me that she was interested in
a pareil like me. ... I acted with mitigated gall and made my way through
the ruly crowd with strong givings."
"Life would be such a nice broglio
Running so smoothly and mok,
If I had a nice portfolio
Full of negotiable stock.
And if it were tax-exempt,
I would be gruntled and kempt."
Here's some more:
"Nothing gives rise to such wild surmise
As the peachable widow with consolate eyes."
"The iquitous girl often loses her balance
When wooed by a man with unususal chalance."
"Men often pursue in suitable style
The imical girl with the scrutable smile."
