    Interesting, I did not realize they had a word for the day. Still it isn’t surprising that it has a word for the day.

    As a small child, I remember thinking that the definition for the word bogus was an elephant's wrinkled knee. I got in a very heated discussion over that with a babysitter. In hindsight, I can't believe she got that angry with a toddler over something like that...

    The one true word of the day that all must heed or be sent to where there is gnashing and wailing is https://www.dictionary.com/e/word-of-the-day/

    And it's 'verst' a Russian measure of distance equivalent to 3,500 feet, or 0.6629 mile (1.067 kilometers).

    "Bogus" is actually portmanteau of the imperative verb,
    "bog" (which means "God" in Russian) & the word, "us".
    I've no idea when anyone would ever use such a word.
