Word of the Day: Ladylike

Candy's Column

Word of the Day: Ladylike

Function: adjective

1.  The appearance of being elegant and well-bred, an appearance that I have clearly passed on to my daughter.

2.  Becoming or suitable to a lady.

a.  For example, a lady would turn her head while belching after a keg stand.

b.  She would also never light a fart on fire… if she were wearing a dress.  Because a lady knows PANTS are most easily permeated by noxious gases.

3.   A term derived from the Latin word RoseanneBarrus.

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
