Fenestration

This morning, @joeyhagedorn tweeted that his word of the day is “defenestration”:

Used in a sentence: “A lot of wildlife habitat loss in the world is occurring due to defenestration.”

His response:

Sad to say, this exchange may have been the high point of my day. Sure made me laugh, though!
