Today's word: defenestration

Yes, I had to look it up, as I suspect most might. What a tale behind that word.
I wonder how Ms Leonard would react to the idea that her defenestration from the twentieth floor would be a “resource-saving initiative”.

Whilst examining various methodologies of how to make the ultimate cuppa, Pique Oil, ever the gentleman, offers to open the latch.

I am pleased you liked it. I added a hotlink to wiktionary for those who wish to look it up as well.
It is a word I learnt many years ago when a group of us were having a discussion with several bottles of whisky as brain lubricant. The other one I remember is gruntled. The clown amongst us gave a drunken version of a yorkshireman saying, Oi b gruntled after a roll in hay with etc etc.

anyway thanks for linking.
