Word of the Day: the long and short of it…

The word antidisestablishmentarianism is the longest “normal” word in the English language. That is to say it’s a word that isn’t a medical term, like for example: hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia. Ironically, this is actually the fear of long words. Maybe they should have made it shorter.

However, there is one word (if you could even call it a word) that blows away all the competition for the Worlds Longest Word Lifetime Achievement Award. I found it on this website while searching the intarwebs for long words.

Drum roll please….

This nearly 2,000 letter-long monstrosity  (1,913 words to be exact) is the name of some protein. Technically it’s not a word, since who the fuck could ever hope to pronounce that?

Hanged or Hung

The finer points of grammar,
Cannot be too widely sung,
If your tense is incorrect,
You may find that you’ve been stung,
It’s easily thought something wrought,
Can perhaps in time be wrung,
Please be careful when you say,
You prefer men hanged or hung.

Auto fellatio

If you’ve the will and flexiblity,
Length and elasticity,
You might give autofellatio a try,
Though apart from curiosity,
And lack of spousal generosity,
I really fail to see the reason why,
The chance is very bad,
That you’ll be the best you’ve had,
You’re gonna have to face yourself and lie,
And even if things stay on track,
And you don’t screw up your back,
You’re quite likely to get shot in the eye.

Advice On Your Enhancement

Behold the breast, it does possess,
The magic of a shaman,
It captivates and titillates us all,
Even the gay man,
A scope that comprises all shapes and sizes,
Something for every taste,
From meaty beaty big and bouncy,
To more than a handful’s a waste,
Still if one conforms to social norms,
I feel it must be said,
Ones mammary should never be,
Bigger than ones head.
