My buddy, Dirk, and I had a long running competition on who could use the Word of the Day in conversation the most.  “Inkhorn” was the word years back.  That evening, I was schmoozing with folks at the Refuge, and I heard Dirk from across the room, “well the other day INKHORN I was walking down the INKHORN with my INKHORN..”
After this night, I dipped my pen in the inkhorn, and wrote “IN CONTEXT” boldly in our rules.
