      the worthless word for the day is: absonous

      [fr. L. absonus, discordant] now rare
      1) unharmonious, dissonant
      2) absurd; unreasonable

      "They were a mendacious clan, and their testifications
      were absonous, and devoid of comprobation. In verity,"
      - S. K. Hoshour, Letters to Squire Pedant

      "The poem closes on an absonous strain.."
      - W. Morrisey, Culture in the Commerc. Republic (1996)
