I don't think you're winning this one, 'Dack. It is in the Oxford and Mirriam-Webster dictionaries. Also, the first pic on this website is from Ahwatukee. I'm sure you've heard of the Encylopedia Britannica.

Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

As a sign of how out of touch I am, I never heard of Kate Upton when she was blowing up. I was somewhere years later and someone was talking about "Kate Update Cat Daddy" and I am like, what language are you speaking? And they just kept repeating it to me like I didn't hear them, instead of not understanding the reference. They told me to look it up and I did and was like, OK, I get it. But how do you even know abut this stuff? I felt old. And I was only a year older than the rest of them.

I already won in my mind. Many decades of living in Phoenix and not once was it called a Haboob by anyone. We get in a war with Iraq and our soldier’s see a dust storm there called a Haboob in Arabic and all of the sudden all dust storms in the US are called Haboobs. They can call it a Haboob. I won’t.

It’s in the dictionary? So is dust storm.

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/dust%20storm

dust storm noun
Definition of dust storm
1 : a dust-laden whirlwind that moves across an arid region and is usually associated with hot dry air and marked by high electrical tension
2 : strong winds bearing clouds of dust

ˈˌapəl ˈpī - Apple Pie

OK, I know who Kate Upton is being a breast man myself but never heard of "Kate Update Cat Daddy" in my life.

Like mentioned in one of the other threads, it was '93 for alot of us when our fandom started and I would have said I was only 12. I remember I liked this dude and being bummed seeing how his story turned out.

Gotta be honest, I'm surprised he's still around all things considered :oops: :oops:

Dumas was such a waste of talent. He could ball, just couldn’t stay of the drugs. What a shame.

I sure hope Book himself isn't spending any mental energy on this stuff at this time.

Pretty sure he isn't bothering to prepare these. That is why he has lawyers.
