The "Lacerates"!!! Even Better Than "Internets"!

PeterofLoneTree at Blondesense asks what moron could possibly write.. well, let me quote it:

His mother had drilled it into him that it was wrong when writing to repeat words already used. Having employed "tears" once in the essay, he sought a substitute from a thesaurus she had given him and wrote "the lacerates ran down my cheeks".

Answer and some background here.
