      the worthless word for the day is: fulmination

      [fr. L. fulminare, strike with lightning]
      1) the bursting forth of thunder and lightning
      2) the act of fulminating or exploding
      3) a thunderous verbal attack

      "Whenever his mother and her sisters gathered to
      work hair and pronounce judgments in the kitchens
      of Archy�s childhood, they had two favorite terms
      of fulmination. The first thunderbolt they liked
      to throw, reaching back like Zeus to grab it from
      a bucket in the corner, was 'shameless'."
