Pronunciation: muhs-tance

Sentence: Judging by her moustance, she's lookin' for some romance with a lady who can break dance.

Etymology: Moustache + Stance


Alternative pronunciations make me think of "compulsion to move the body in time to music" and "an example from or fleeting moment in the life of a rodent". As such, the word kicks ass and gets my vote. - Bulletchewer, 2007-05-02: 16:49:00

That picture is so disturbing on so many levels.

mplsbohemian - 2007-05-02: 11:01:00
Um, oy, that must have come off so transphobic. :\

About the picture... I have received a suggestion that this young lady's allegiances are less than clear, so I have prepared an alternative portrait. Please see: Being Clear About our Allegiances. Thanks ~ James

Jabberwocky - 2007-05-02: 12:59:00
Yikes!! the options are even more disturbing - pretty soon she'll look like Chewbacca

OMG! It's an American Hairwolf in Toondon! (Or perhaps she has a hairmone problem.)

wordmeister - 2007-05-02: 16:30:00
Chewytobacca? I wonder what JediJawa thinks of that?

Bulletchewer - 2007-05-02: 16:45:00
Always love stirring up debate, but credit's due the artist. For some strange reason forgotten in a dream, I only ever thought of this definition applying to the male of the species...

It appears as if this wampeter definitely needs a waxing!
