This one word set off an orgy of stall scribbling. The next day, someone wrote underneath the above: "gravitate." Then someone added "pontificate." Pretty soon these were followed by "ameliorate," "exacerbate," etc. -- you name it. (I swear I think guys were taking dictionaries and thesaruses into the crapper just to participate -- hey, there's another one!)
Eventually, a janitor scrubbed the vocabulary lesson clean. The next day, someone defiled the now blank canvas with a long tirade in indelible black marker, starting out "Hey, Drano-breath..." and using a selection of colorful metaphors to assail the janitor's manhood, his mother, and various parts of his anatomy, and warning him that he would suffer the fate of the Ti-D-Bowl man if he dared to censor us again.
