Word of the Day Winner       PULCHRITUDINOUS
 
So many wonderful answers to choose from!
 
Best anagram: Ludicrous hip turn
 

Pul-chrit-tud-in-ous = pool grit chewed in us.  (Some real ´groaners ´ in this explanation - very punny indeed)

 
A very clean dinosaur!

 
we are all beautiful  - very close to the actual meaning
 
 
 
after much deliberation ..........the winner is:     Mariethe House    Clap    Congratulations!
 
Here is the explanation:
 
 
Pulch: from Pulchinella, the Italian form of the French Polichinelle:



ritu: from ritual :   ritual noun

Click to hear the UK pronunciation of this wordClick to hear the US pronunciation of this word/ˈrɪt.ju.əl//ˈrɪtʃ.u-/ n [C or U]
a set of fixed actions and sometimes words performed regularly, especially as part of a ceremony

Dinous : short form of "libidinous"    libidinous adjectiveClick to hear the UK pronunciation of this wordClick to hear the US pronunciation of this word/lɪˈbɪd.ɪ.nəs/ adj formal

having or showing strong sexual desires

So my definition: pulchritudinous behaving like a sexually driven puppet in strange rituals  that take place every year on October 31st! So waaaaaaaaaaaatch it!
