you ecclesiastical bastard

Ecumenic Ec`u*men”ic, Ecumenical Ec`u*men”ic*al, adj.
General; universal; in ecclesiastical usage, that which
concerns the whole church; as, an ecumenical council.
[1913 Webster]

New rule: If you’re defining a word, none of the words in the definition get to exceed two syllables, or you get shignucked. In case you’re wondering:

Shignucked Sh`ig*nuck”ied, v.
To have your helioretina removed from its proper location.
[2006 MY ASS]

  2. This is actually a word from “Jihad vs. McWorld,” which we are reading for Political Science. So far the main thing I’ve learned is the author of this book (Benjamin Barber), is very impressed with his own vocabulary.
