Word 12: Repudiate


repudiate
(v.) to reject as having no authority or binding force: to repudiate a claim.
 In my last blog post I mentioned a small competition I'd be holding, and here it is! 
The challenge to you, vocabulary adventurer, is to conjure up an example of today's word, Repudiate, in a viable sentence.
I'll give you an example;
'Yogi Bear's fixation for picnic baskets was constantly repudiated by the strict reign of Ranger Smith.'
That was an example from the top of my head, why it included Yogi Bear, I'm not sure. But I'm sure with a bit of thought there could be some excellent and entertaining examples.
The best examples will be placed in a poll which will feature on my blog front page, from which viewers can vote for their favourites. 
After one week's worth of voting, the example with the most votes will be named winner and vocabulary champion of the world (or something).
Good luck, have fun, and get creative!

  1. The Dog Diary

    We were like a wild kin of dogs, barking and biting in the halls of longivity as we were waiting on the resulting white A4-paper that decides our continuity of our lifespan. Soon, the biting and barking stopped and changed into sheer howling or smiles.

    The Head Wolf passed the papers around and when i finally received the feared and loathed piece with the precarious numbers I reputiated the numeral figures. "This could not be happening", "impossible" or "Mother of Wolves" passed through my mind as a determined drugged junkie thinking Bush did two great terms based on peace and freedom. I can not longer reputatiate the numbers.

    My anxiousness turned into happyness. I only failed for Economy. It will be Dancing with Wolves, rather Wolvines this night, feeding on the night and alcoholic abuse. The night is once again ours!

  5. As Mary expected, the insurance company did repudiate her claim. It seems a dog-driven rocket powered wheelchair could not be justified as part of her insurance cover.
