Word of the Day

Communard: (n.) Archaic term synonymous with Communist. Refers specifically to supporters of the Paris Commune in the late 1800s. Useful term to appeal to the ideals of Communism without identifying with the failed dictatorships of Stalinism or Maoism. Plus, it has "nard" right there in the suffix. Sweet.

It's an alternate spelling of nad. I think Jiggs is keen on the word lately. The phrase "Ooh, right in the nards" is the most common usage.

NARD!!!

Jiggs likes it because he has three and half nards. He's making those of us that don't have any feel insufficient.

If anything I feel too sufficient.
