By Chelsea Dagger

EPIC VOCAB SHOUT-OUTS from yesterday's post go to:

mysticjadeshoe: When Dumbledore informed the school that Draco wore diapers, it was quite defamatory to Draco's poor, nonexistent reputation.

sparkles9513: Rebecca Black's failed attempt at becoming a teen sensation is defamatory to the glorious day that is Friday.

luv2dance1995: Although some ignorant Sparklers/Manklers may assume that Chelsea Dagger's sweaty reputation is defamatory to her success as a writer, we knowledgeable and wise ones know that Chelsea's sweat is part of what makes her such a magnificent writer!

NarniaSparks: Granger Danger cried after hearing the defamatory song of "Hermione Can't Draw."

crimsonandclover23: The fact that I am an admitted nerd and don't like loud noise MIGHT be a little defamatory to my reputation as a rock star.

Today's word: Platitude
