hippopotamic - A real enough word, meaning large, like a hippopotamus -- a "riverhorse," "the horse of the river." Ran across this looking for Inigo Motoya's second most famous quotation: "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." I was looking for it because someone misused the word "poignant" for "pertinent" commenting on the linked article.

e.g., "Fezzik: You never said anything about killing anyone. Vizzini: I've hired you to help me start a war. It's a prestigious line of work, with a long and glorious tradition. Fezzik: I just don't think it's right, killing an innocent girl. Vizzini: Am I going MAD, or did the word "think" escape your lips? You were not hired for your brains, you hippopotamic land mass. Inigo Montoya: I agree with Fezzik. Vizzini: Oh, the sot has spoken. What happens to her is not truly your concern. I will kill her. And remember this, never forget this: when I found you, you were so slobbering drunk, you couldn't buy Brandy! [turning to Fezzik] Vizzini: And YOU: friendless, brainless, helpless, hopeless! Do you want me to send you back to where you were? Unemployed, in Greenland?"

hippopotamus - (n.) 1. The Song "Beer for my Horses" (2003) by Toby Keith and Willie Nelson. ["How on earth," I hear you saying, "did_hippopotamus_become synonymous with a country-and-western song?" Well, someone took the word apart the wrong way while doing etymology one day: In reality, the word_hippopotamus_derives from the Greek hippos 'horse' + potamos 'river'; my informant, however, divided it into Greek hippos 'horse' + Lating potamus 'we drink.' His interpretation was both entirely unexpected as well as charmingly wrong, and we all had a good laugh at using _hippopotamus_ to mean "To you, Horse! We drink!" (Hippos's dative form was hippoi, and was about the closest we could get.) Then, somebody pointed out the country song about ordering beer for the horses, and, well, it's the hippopotamus song ... which gets us some very funny looks.] I suppose you could also use it to mean something like "Here's to the tanks! or the Jeeps! or the planes! or the copters!" or whatever your transportation might be.

e.g., "Sergeant, the horses are spent." "Aye, Sir, they're good and loyal beasties, but your'e right, Sir, and we canna' ketch the foe ridin' dead beasts." "Hippopotamus, Sergeant! We passed an inn a mile or so back that looks to have a fine stable. Let us rest our hard-running mounts and toast them in the tavern!" "Aye, Sir. I'll tell the men." "Carry on, Sergeant." "OKAY, YE GUTTER SCUM! TURN ABOOT! DISMOUNT AND WALK YOUR HARSES BACK TAE THE INN UP THE ROOD! THE LEFTENANT AND I'VE AGREED THAT THE MOUNTS ARE WORTH A DAMSIGHT MARE THAN YEUR WORTHLESS CARCASSES. DIIIIISS-MOUNT!" "Very good, Sergeant: you are the kindest of men." "Yore very kind, Sir, but tis naught by me job. Good horseflesh is hard to come by." | "Hey! turn it up!: it's Willie Nelson doing 'Beer for my Horses.'"

hoba - (n.) a female hobo. ("hobo" is a rather negative term for what we now call the homeless, connoting a choice to defy any work ethic, rather than the unintended flotsamee into which most homeless people fall when all or part of the economy goes under. This defiant connotation, unfortunately, makes the feminine term "hoba" more an expression of contempt or disgrace than the pathos or even humor connoted by the masculine "hobo." I therefore have to classify it as a derogatory term.)

e.g., Hobos were frighteningly common in the 1930s because of the Dust Bowl and the Depression. One did not often see hobas, however, despite the grim reality that there were thousands of them outcast and struggling against hollow-eyed famine for themselves and their children.

Hope that saves you a tax bill. 2016-10-23 --> 2016-10-23 {Duplicate.}

hoosier daddy - The penultimate American male -- tall, handsome, muscular, yet sensitive and caring, a good provider, and from the Midwest.

e.g., With bright, glowing eyes, Alecia watched Rick get up from his chair and walk to the apartment door. "I love you so much!" she said. "You're so strong and good looking, and you're always concerned about me and my feelings, and you treat me like a queen! You could have any girl you want, why me?" Rick took the straw of wheat from the corner of his lips, turned and faced her, his steely blue eyes warm and tender. "Hoosier Daddy?" he asked, and he smiled, and went out the door.
