  2. I was also thinking about a substance that snakes might leave behind (especially after a big meal) but it sure ain't oil.

    Word verification phrase is pingly, as in "Whenever I listen to Obama on the tv, my leg gets all pingly."

  5. I like pingly as a political malady. Connotation that first your leg gets all tingly then you pee yourself.

    Perfect description of Obama Idiocy Syndrome.
