@fount8 Hide it in a hiding place where no one ever goes Put it in your pantry with your cupcakes A small peccavi, just the Robinsons' affair Most of all, you've got to hide it from the kids #artwiculate

Peccavi - malaprop, or just a miserable sinner ? #Artwiculate

@peterhamill4 I got no deeds to do No promises i’d keep I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep Let the morning time drop all its petals on me Life, I love you All is peccavi #artwiculate

She had confessed her eating disorder 5 times already to the priest, but she could feel herself slipping If she confesses again it'll be a #peccavi pica vi (...& if I'm wrong, I'll have to eat my words) #artwiculate

I confess that my peccavi might have been a little too peckery to publish on Twitter. So I decided against such piggishness. #artwiculate

#artwiculate There was a young farmer called Davy/ who decided to breed rare peccavi./ But this hippo-like pig/ proved so infra dig/ that he gave up and went in the Navy.

Own up to your peccability by saying #peccavi #artwiculate

I must confess that I sow right through #artwiculate's definition of peccavi, but I won't squeal on them.

I think #artwiculate is certainly guilty of giving us the wrong definition of Peccavi. I mean it’s a pig of a word but it ain’t no mammal.

I call on #artwiculate to confess it used a pig Latin definition for today's WOTD, peccavi.

When General Sir Charles James Napier signalled Peccavi he meant he had Sindh not that he captured a South American pig! #artwiculate

'Peccavi' telegraphed Sir Charles Napier to his superiors on his conquest of an Indian province. 'I have Sind'. #artwiculate

Uh oh! #Artwiculate has sinned and confused peccavi with peccary. They've made a right pig's ear of it.

Ovo Vivi Parous! It was a very nice trip abroad being pregnant with memories, thank you! #artwiculate

I had to scoff when my Ex once described himself as an Egghead. "Based on your co-workers' likening you to a snake, I'd say you're more ovoviviparous." #artwiculate

@fount8 He was a most peculiar man. That's what Mrs. Riordan says and she should know; She's ovoviviparous She said he was a most peculiar man. #artwiculate

#artwiculate Reporting for the BBC on a dozen reasons why Ovoviviparous is word of the day , Live from Hatch End . That’s no yoke.

for some reason when I think of ovoviviparous I think of tapioca pudding #artwiculate #yuk

Keeping things inside Ovoviviparous means Plans are being hatched #artwiculate #haiku

Vivienne wasn’t happy: “If all these snakes are ovoviviparous breeders, what about my chooks?” O Viv, oviparous. #artwiculate #anagram @vivchook

What kind of snake chose ovoviviparous as today's #artwiculate word?

Many snakes and lizards are ovoviviparous. To be precise, this means their young hatch internally before being expelled into the outside world. Egg sac-ly. #artwiculate

Politicians may be mammals, but political parties are ovoviviparous. There's always something reptilian being hatched within. #artwiculate
