…keeps the doctor (probably the psychiatrist…) away…

I used to subscribe to this when I was teaching in Canada, but cancelled it when I came to the UK.

This week’s theme: words that seem risque.

Today’s word:

turdiform (TUR-di-form) adjective

Like a thrush (any of the songbirds of the family Turdidae).

[From Latin turdus (thrush).]

Previous words from this week:

Monday: testaceous
Tuesday: titivate
Wednesday: vomitorium
Thursday: cockshut
