The dangers of using a US based dictionary / thesaurus on a UK based list:

> From WordNet (r) 2.0 :
>   feisty
>        adj 1: showing courage; "the champion is faced with a feisty
>               challenger" [syn: plucky, spunky]

Imbued with involuntary night time emissions?eference in popular culture.

>> Enough ranting. I'll leave you with this:
>> From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :
>>  narwhal
>>    it is called also sea unicorn, unicorn fish,
>>       and unicorn whale.
> You're just having a bit of a rant, aren't you?

You're just having a bit of pedantic facetiousness, aren't you?
