    Testament:- a word meaning truth, often applied to mindless superstition and unprovable fancy.

    Gourmet:
    "I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity- through him all things fall. Not by wrath, but by laughter, do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity!" - Nietzsche

    Dribble - a verb used by football commentators upon observing infantile behaviour by players, including, but not limited to: tantrums, tears and unintential relinquishing of bodily fluids.

    Don't want to worry you, me old, but we did that one a bit ago.

    However...piecemeal. The amount paid to a jobbing cook.

    How about:

    Election
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    The state of bing rude about anyone that does not agree with your opinions, regardless of what they might be. Also, to stare mindlessly at people on public transport. See dawk, dawking, dawkishness, en-dawked.
