The internet doesn't seem to vouch for its existence, especially, but I'm rooting for it. Spread it around! The word, I mean.]

    I would rather the word didn't mean either covered in or filled with. That confusion could end badly.

  2. Try searching for the word "ordure," a noun meaning filth; I've never heard the adjectival form, but rock on - I'll use it!

    Now I just need a reason to use it . . . watch out for open windows, Drew.
