Today's New Word

...courtesy of Jan's spare copy of Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (yes I read dictionaries, doesn't everyone?):

synophrys [Gr. syn, together + ophrys, eyebrow]. Condition in which the eyebrows grow across the midline.

More popularly known as the unibrow.

This is quite silly, but we all need a few laughs.

Thanks for the laugh, Joyce. I think I'll go pluck a few hairs out of my brows now.

Nice to see that old Harry P. has such great grooming habits -- if you're gonna have it, embrace it and comb it, I say! :)
