I think I could come up with a more unique sentence (not one that I just re-arranged from last night's word of the day) if the new word of the day was not so obfuscate.  LOL

Lol, indeed.  I think though, in this case you would need to change forms from the verb obfuscate to the adjective obfuscatory.  Trying saying obfuscatory 3 times fast! :)
