My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

My definition for yeanling was an educated guess.

Zounds I know -- It's an exclamation of dismay or surprise, especially among the English.

Zoanthropy -- Hmm....An infestation of zoo animals.

Stephanie D. said...

I believe misanthropy is like a disdain or dislike or something of other people, so zoanthropy might be a dislike or distrust of animals?

Zounds like a winner to me!

Linda said...

Zoanthropy - the study of ants that live in a zoo

Zounds - the sounds that the animals make at the zoo

Yeah, yeah, these are bad but what can I say? I'm outta practice!

ZOUNDS is easy, That's one of the sounds on a Batman and Robin fight, like , BAMM! PLUNK! AND ZOUNDS!

Zoanthropy is also fairly easy, that's you you get at a Zoan tournament, a Zoanthropy.
