Carcass Word of the Day Calendar Oct. 21, 2007

Carcass had the best vocabulary, cribbed from medical texts, in the underground short of Bad Religion. In this periodic feature, we did into the grindsters' word hoard, so you're ready the next time pyosis pops up in casual conversation at a cocktail party.

Pediculous – n. In pathology, the state of being infested with lice
Used in a sentence:
“I devour the pediculous corpse,
Whetting my palate as I exhume,
The festering stench of rotting flesh,
Makes me drool as I consume”
“Exhume to Consume” on Symphonies of Sickness
