Searing Examples – A Part of Speech

All Searings know that name searches are hard because our family name is a part of speech.

So I decided to collect and present with good humor a few examples culled from the internet, roughly organized by the word modified, without attribution of any kind, and arguably within the ‘fair use’ doctrine of copyright law (with a smile, I hope).    Here’s a searing trivia game…can words modified by ‘searing’ be found for every letter of the alphabet?  If you find additions to the list, please send them on and I will post.     As of December, 2008 we are missing only J, K, X, and Y.
