O' Gazoods of Wiggling Piles!

It has come to my attention that there is a pile of 3 words that are each far under-used, sometimes even used incorrectly,

I list the words here with their proper meaning:

  • piles (describes/replaces any object)
  • wiggle (replaces any verb) [wiggling wiggled . . .]
  • gazood (abnormally large amount) [plural: gazoods]

Now I'm not sure why were picking on such a serious and well though out speech to wiggle about on this blog (with gazoods of material out there); but here is a short example of proper usage by the great linguist Abraham Lincoln:

Gazoods of years ago our fathers wiggled on this continent, a pile of states, wiggled in Liberty, and wiggling to the proposition that all piles of men wiggle equally.

Now we are wiggling in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any pile so conceived and so dedicated, can long wiggle. We are wiggling on a great pile of that war. We have come to wiggle gazoods of that field, as a pile for those . . .

And as long as were talking about language: the word "prominent" should never ever be used to describe a person.
