japitxatx commented on the word fricassee
This word is amazing. In fact, it should be stripped of its definition so that one might be able to say, "Oh fricassee! I've lost my wallet!" or "That fricasseein' bastard stole my shoelaces!" or "I took a lovely fricassee through the park." Truly this word has a veratile sound.
