Today's magnificent word of the day is CARK. Top Management and I have agreed that this is a word the world needs and have decided to do our part to bring it back. To that end, I've...well, I've posted this. Hey, man, there are only so many hours in the day, and I've still got three damn games of Frumball to play.
cark (kark) verb tr., intr.
A worry or care.
[From Middle English carken (to load or burden), from Norman French
carquier, from Latin carricare. Ultimately from Indo-European root
kers- (to run) that's also the source of car, career, carpenter, occur,
discharge, and caricature. Why caricature? Because a caricature
is a loaded or distorted picture of someone.]
