Good morning, Word Lovers! Last week’s Word of the Week (WOW) was billingsgate. No one had a guess for this word. So, let’s consult Merriam-Webster Online: coarsely abusive language. Maybe that’s why my readers didn’t know it? None of us engage in billingsgate???

Today’s WOW is fantod. Here are my guesses for the definition of fantod: 

fantod: (ˈfan-ˌtäd)  1. Todd’s fan 2. odd Fanta soft drink 3. air conditioning for a toad

What’s your guess for fantod? Submit it here.

Wednesday’s Post: What is your “take-away” from Children of the Day?
