I like vivid language and find words neurologically sensual (logophile/hypergraphic) so I voted $20 words. Being well-read is all it takes to have a decent vocabulary. $20 words are great, and more people should be psyched on language and ecstatic precision (pro tip: it makes writing more fun), but so’s cadence, economy and the nuances of “voice.” Unless you’re reading Joseph Harms or some shit, you shouldn’t be consulting a dictionary too much if you draw from the common oceanic pool of literature.

to clarify, I don’t consult the dictionary reading Joseph Harms, I let the $100 words wash over me like milk and honey from a nubile witch’s tit.

Wayne Gunston's Guide to $20 Words

Gidday, tatterdemalion cunts!

Welcome to Wayne Gunston's Guide to $20 Words.



Me, Wayne, your favourite
lalochezian callipygous bastard.
I know all the $20 words. I bought
the whole fuckin lot for 50 bucks
at that garage sale on the weekend.


Now then, let's get down to business. How many $20 words do you know? Four? Sorry smartarse, but "supercilious" is no longer a $20 word. It's a $5 word at best. So now you only know three $20 words. Callipygous and two others. Pathetic. You thick bastard. There's only so many times you, the aspiring writer, can drop "mellifluous", "callipygous" and that one other flash harry word into your stunted, shithouse prose before the ruse is well and truly up.

That's where I come in. Once your cheque's cleared, my Wayne Gunston's Guide to $20 Words will show you exactly where and when to use $20 words.

$695.99 for just 12 easy-to-follow instalments.
No layby. Stop fucking around and PAY NOW.


Here is just a brief sampler of what you can expect from Wayne Gunston's Guide to $20 Words.

* A refresher course on the $20 words you already know. Face it, you've already forgotten what "callipygous" means and you only found out about the fuckin stupid thing 3 bloody sentences ago. Stupid bastard. PAY NOW!
* An autographed strand of my lustrous hair. Use it as a bookmark. It's that bloody thick!
* Words.
* Sexually graphic passages.
* Pictures of $20 words.

Gunston InfoMercial

Not only will my guide to $20 words educate you about ALL the $20 words it will also "troubleshoot" those words that are often mistaken for being $20 words but are in fact NOT fucken $20 words.

Here is a brief sample list of just some of the commonly mistaken $20 words as exposed by Wayne Gunston's Guide to $20 Words.

* Wheelbarrow (quite a long word, hence the confusion. NOT a $20 word)
* Elephant (elephants are big which makes people think the word is long and confusing but at a paltry 7 letters it's not overly long)
* Psychedelic (nothing about a hippie is worth $20 bucks)

Pay NOW to get the full list of NOT $20 words!

Just $850.99 in 8 easy instalments.

Operators are standing by!
