Greetings Word of the Week fans and welcome to the Sept. 5 edition of Clarion County's favorite word game.
It was on this date in 1882, the first United States Labor Day parade is held in New York City.
Labor Day in the United States of America is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September.
It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the development, growth, endurance, strength, security, prosperity, productivity, laws, sustainability, persistence, structure, and well-being of the country.
It is the Monday of the long weekend known as Labor Day Weekend. It is recognized as a federal holiday.
Of course, we've already marked Labor Day this year so before you head out the door for your job, consider disembogue.
It's a verb.
Does disembogue mean:
A: To end a conversation. "I'm sorry, Dave, but your knowledge of The Valley of Unicorns is so distorted I have to disembogue."
B: Leave or depart. "I've got to get to Pittsburgh for the Pirates game," said the optimistic fan. "I have to disembogue right away."
C: To flow out, or discharge. "Who let the keg disembogue?" asked Fred. "I can't wash down my Labor Day picnic food without a cold brew."
D: Clean a fish. "We'll eat just as soon as I can disembogue," said the chef. "You can go catch another if you want to."
