Are you being chorizontal?
(That's not a clue. I just wanted to show off a new word.)
Lying down eating sausage?
(emulate St. George for email)
No, that's 'flatwursting'.
'Chorizontal' means 'ascribing a work to more than author'.
Piff! I thought everyone knew that.
Lately I hear them calling it "phrlanking"....r
If so, it's the third millennium--you have to say "multiple authors".
> Piff! I thought everyone knew that.
A hapax googlemenon--well done!
Yes. And I should have written 'corpus', not 'work'.
>If so, it's the third millennium--you have to say "multiple authors".
A corpus with multiple authors
Was ascribed by X to a porpoise.
A chorizont said:
'He's better off dead
These days, X is a gawpus.'

I'm not sure I want to understand that.
But I did try. Did you know that (a) flatwursts exist and (b) a professional

Just a guess, but "lion"?

The book is _Where the Wild Things Are_ by Maurice Sendak. He
illustrated the Little Bear books by Else Holmelund Minarik. The cognate
Sheep are going to show up this evening, by the way.

The first, several days ago, was that when looking for -as words I
rejected alias as an adverb, not a feminine plural. Too hasty!
Elsewise, after the last heavy hint, I couldn't remember where our copy
of Where the Wild Things Are had got to. (I've found it now.) My
recollection was that the sentences were all short.
Your Cormo is letting the wild rumpus start, but under another name.
Jerry Friedman, T. O. Sheepimaginer
I looked at Wiki myself, but by then the sheep had been snared...I did however

"Before Where the Wild Things Are, Sendak was best known for illustrating Else
Holmelund Minarik's Little Bear series of books."
