Here's another real word of the day from, since it too points to what I do to language. It's cool that interesting real words apply here:

zeugma \ZOOG-muh\, noun:

The use of a word to modify or govern two or more words when it is appropriate to only one of them or is appropriate to each but in a different way, as in "to wage war and peace," or "on his fishing trip, he caught three trout and a cold." Zeugma stems from the Greek word of the same spelling which meant "a yoking."

--So language in my hands takes a yoking and keeps on toking? Come now, I cant' be serious, I must be yoking?

Can tree bark bark up the wrong tree? I guess it depends on if said bark is an element in the tree or its own suobstance?
