    I was recently criticized, no scratch that, slammed into submission for my use of the word epic.

    I would like to use this thread to list things that are epic so that people better understand the use of the word. It's some how worked it's way into our everyday speech and makes us all sound stupid.

    ep·ic [ep-ik] Show IPA
    adjective Also, ep·i·cal.
    1.
    noting or pertaining to a long poetic composition, usually centered upon a hero, in which a series of great achievements or events is narrated in elevated style: Homer's Iliad is an epic poem.
    2.
    resembling or suggesting such poetry: an epic novel on the founding of the country.
    3.
    heroic; majestic; impressively great: the epic events of the war.
    4.
    of unusually great size or extent: a crime wave of epic proportions.
    5.
    Slang. spectacular; very impressive; awesome: Their burgers and fries are epic!


    So, what's epic?

    I found Momento to be an under rated and epic move, Pf was good too.

    Randy Marsh had an epic bowel movement. First one was 8.6 courics, second was 14 courics and the final epic stool was 100 courics. One couric = 2.5 pounds. Yay, Randy! You go, man! Literally.:D

    I figured that would be an epic thread killer or an epic set up for some great comments.

    Yes. The standard of measuring was named after her because of the epic on-air t.v. broadcast of her colonoscopy a few years ago. And remember, speedbump, please stay on topic by properly using "epic" somewhere in your replies. We need to keep this thread un-'tainted'. (hee, hee...I said taint):D

    I believe Katie's politics are non-epic in my book. Dictionary: ep·ic
    /ˈepik/ as in non - epic. Adjective:
    Of, relating to, or characteristic of an epic or epics.
    Synonyms:
    noun. epos - epopee
    adjective. heroic - epical with non - in front.
