Put up with it

kw: wordplay

No links today . . .

There is a cute piece of whimsy that gets e-mailed to me every few weeks, with 48 uses of the word UP. One online dictionary lists about thirty definitions for UP. I wonder when someone will get really creative with PUT. The same dictionary has nearly seventy definitions for PUT, but I read somewhere that the Oxford English Dictionary has about 300.

That is probably more than any one is willing to put into a comprehensive e-mail. Not that I'm put out about it, mind you . . .
