accoutrement

(Said by me in chat with sdn.)

Leave a sentence with the word accoutrement in comments. If they're funny, we might have another contest.

"After one of the Coutre brothers lost his tongue in an accident, it took a while for anyone to understand what accoutrement."

I need to get some sleep now...

All I can do is swipe a line from Daffy Duck-as-a-Musketeer:

"Pardon me whilst I adjust my accoutrements."

Yeah--it's funnier when he says it.

My personal accoutrements make it difficult to find button down shirts that fit properly.

While I was looking through the book of the tattoo artists' work, there was a section with odd piercings, including several clitoral piercings which prompted me to think to myself, "Nice accoutrements!"

I'd rather have accoutrement than an ugly one!

Contratemps his shaking accoutrement, Pierre faced the guillotine with stoicism.

How odd.

The word sounds like "a, coo, trey, mon" to me. But it turns out the word is said as "a cooter mint."

And it can be spelled accoutrement or accouterment. I am boggled.

Bo and Luke never did find out what all accoutrement about putting curb feelers on the General Lee.

When we crossed the Nullarbor we saw lots of stunted bushes. It wasn't until we reached Adelaide that I finally could appreciate what accoutrement.

Hey, I use that word completely naturally with some regularity.

Huh. Maybe that makes me pretentious.

Nah.

Yeah, I was wondering about that myself. I've been using it with some regularity for years.
