Or it twought to be

So apparently it’s “tweet,” “twet,” “twutten.”

(Not to be confused with “hic, haec, hoc”: that’s a pronoun, dammit.)

    The present participle is “twut,” of course. Obviously.

    If anyone comes to the door saying “Twick or twut,” I will be somewhat less gruntled.

    Yeah, but if they were dressed as either a small blue bird or a large white whale, I think “twik or twut” would be most appropriate.

    (Hm. The Fail Whale. Too bad I don’t have anywhere I need to be wearing a costume the 31st; I can see how one could construct a pretty good replica of that, net and all….)

    Undergruntlement is nothing to tweeze at.
