I tried to keep with the theme, "How bad can you get?"

Debi said...

Yes, but there's bad, awful and then there's bleedin' amazin' and that's you, m'dear.

Is 'corpusculently' a word?
'Corpusculous'?
Ew, that doesn't even sound healthy.

Hey, if you liked that last one, here's another...

Stratford, Stratford
on The Thames.
Stratford, Stratford
'Lympic Gemz.
