I've always loved the sound of this word, but I thought purloin sounded more like a cut of beef, like sirloin.

there’s a lot of nefarious purloining goes on in a particular thread on this site -_- :gikkle:

And what thread might that be, for those of us who aren't aware of or familiar with what you're talking about?

If you don’t know, it means more shiny for the rest.

Sometimes military units, to get what they need, must STEAL it or Strategically Transfer Equipment to Another Location.

It may be purloined, but soldiers like to call it an undocumented transfer.

But if caught, they become FUBAR'd.
