Fibbing Friday — Anatomy Lesson

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today is Frank’s turn to host and he is presenting us with ten medical and anatomical words that need definitions.

1. sphincter

A smaller version of an Egyptian sphinx found in amusement parks around the world.

2. phalanges

A mountain range in South America.

3. rectum

An expression used in sports to indicate that a team badly beat the opposition, as in, “Our boys really rectum, didn’t they?”

4. varicose

It’s when someone is unwilling to fight; the opposite of bellicose.

5. aorta

This is how waiters and waitresses in the Boston area help short order cooks prioritize orders. An a-orta has top priority, a b-orta comes next, followed by a c-orta, etc.

6. vein

This is when someone is excessively proud of or concerned about one’s own appearance, qualities, achievements, etc.

7. artery

This is a main road or highway that runs between towns.

8. alveolus

This is a style of sunglasses most often associated with airplane pilots.

9. bacteria

This is the back of a school’s cafeteria, where those who are antisocial prefer to sit at lunch.

10. virus

This is a violet-colored flower found in many gardens.
