The Backward OX

When I was much younger, I would go into paroxysms of laughter over the word 'elephant,' as it looked such a stupid word.

It still looks stupid, but I've learned to control the laughing.

That 'syzygy' looks like half a word from here. Didn't you forget the 'ium'?

Syzygy is a real word, unlike philangee, which I can't find anywhere. Szyygy is an astronomy term having to do with conjunctions of celestial bodies, either opposed or in a straight line, and is especially favored for use when three celestial bodies form a line.
Philangee appears to be jabberwocky. Can someone favor us with a definition?

I was kidding about the word philangee. It was something made up that Pheobe said a lot on the t.v show Friends. Sorry for the confusion.

Like a Fox

It's not made up. It's Phalange. It's a bone-joint thingy in fingers and toes.

I'm beginning to look like I have a finger fetish.

I also think Fingerling in The Number 23 was an awesome character name.
