Axver For Dictator

Ah, the dictionary, such a beacon of knowledge and information ...!

dictionary_wotd has made a revelation: the definition of aver AXVER!

Yes, that is right: I am now defined in the dictionary! I am sure you are wondering "whatever could Axver mean?" I was wondering that too, and I was most fascinated to discover my true meaning.

axver \acks-vuh\, transitive verb;
Inflected forms: axverred; axverring:
1. To affirm with confidence; to declare in a positive manner, as in confidence of asserting the truth.
2. (Law) To assert, claim, or declare as a fact.
Axver is from Old French-Medieval French 'axverer' and ultimately descended from Latin 'verus'.

OK, so first off, I am not human. You are communicating with a transitive verb whom you may inflect at appropriate times in appropriate tenses and what-have-you. I feel robbed of my independence for some reason. But, no matter, for whenever you are confidently proclaiming the truth or stating facts, you are using me. I knew there had to be a reason why I'm so passionate about the truth, and now I know what it is. Keep axvering what is true, ladies and gentlemen. Make sure you axver the truth daily! Axver truth to friends and family!

Axver: used by everyone from Christ to Bono to bring truth into your life. Never once used by George Bush or any Australian sports commentator.

Disclaimer: If this is totally and completely not funny, bear in mind it's about the only thing to have really given me a smile in the last 7-8 hours. Humour me.
