(…) of the Week

WORD: defenestration (found in a Calvin & Hobbes comic strip)

BOOK OPENER: “You will rejoice to hear that no disaster has accompanied the commencement of an enterprise which you have regarded with such evil forebodings.” – Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

GRAMMAR DISASTER: “Toilet broken. Please use floor below” – sign on a restroom door on the third floor of an office building, presumably meaning that anyone needing to use the facilities should go down a flight of stairs to do so.
