And all this time I though an antenpenultimate was a human condition for which there is no cure. Just remember if you are an antenpenultimate in a marathon of three contestants; you are going home with the trophy!

If you join Tom Cruise's religion they will throw all these words at you making you look like a fool.
I was trained to keep things simple so pen-ultimate will probably be 2nd last.....

Never used it and never knew it existed. Maybe this should have been posted in just for fun.
Conrad Allen I thought third to last was "Show". No wonder they don't talk about those third place winners.
Conrad you've been talking to Wayne Martin haven't you
Condrad...You must be kidding, This is a word I use several times a day in my conversation and writing with other people. Now, what was that word again??? :)
Conrad, saw this as a trivia question and true to form did not get it right!
Never heard that word before. Anything in between 1st place and last place doesn't really matter.
Good Sunday morning Conrad. Sure! We all knew that! – Not
Good morning Conrad. A mind is a terrible thing to waste, you are certainly making sure, yours is not wasted.
Heck no, had no clue and can't even pronounce it.
No, I did not, I did know what penultimate means. Too funny Conrad. A
Yes, I am sure I already knew that...
Can you pronounce that for us, please?
I wonder when anyone would use it?
Naturally we did!
Conrad - I don't think I will be using that soon in any conversation because I don't think I would be able to pronounce it correctly.
White ribbon - show at the track - that's a pretty fancy word.
Conrad Allen - thanks for sharing.
Did not know about it for sure.
No I didn't know but do now.
I make sure I use that word at least three times a week in a conversation.
well, if an agent can't be first, he/she might as well be antenpenultimate!!
If you say so Conrad. Though, I thought that I didn't.
No. I hope you will not have much use for this word.
Did not know, but did enjoy reading many of the responses here, thanks Conrad!
Makes sense since "penultimate" means next to last, although that word is often misinterpreted or used to mean last.
Well then, Conrad, silly me, as well!
I've heard that if you're not the lead dog the view never changes!
I did not know but do now!
I always value a big word that defines something that did not need defined whose definition contains fewer characters than the contrived word.
But my reality has been I'm always LAST in the line and aspire to be antenpenultimate.
Thx. I knew about penultimate. I guess this makes sense given the latin route. I learned something new today.
NO actually I didn't now that word.
