    I've just realised that "disgruntled" is the opposite of "gruntled".

    Say what! Since when was "gruntled" a word?

    "I'm really gruntled to be here." Is a stupid thing to say.

    On the contrary, it's a reck thing to say!

    Disseminate.

    So, now we know that seminate means to conceal, gather, hide.

    e.g. hey, divegeester, what do you say if we seminate the corpse before
    uncorking the champagne?

    Watch out for those Cadaver dogs.
    They can't be fooled.

    I was a bit baffled by this thread at first, but now I combobulate it.

    It would probably be better to paste an actual Quote from a book or a newspaper here...

    Merriam Webster (and it is the source you will find) gives a Quote by a certain W.P. Webb, but in fact if you Google that only this source Comes up. Merriam Webster also gives the first use as 1926 (I assume this W.P. Webb used it then...)
