Word of the Day 06/10/15 Gainsay

Gainsay (verb)
gainsay [geyn-sey, geyn-sey]

verb (used with object), gainsaid, gainsaying.
1. to deny, dispute, or contradict.
2. to speak or act against; oppose.

Origin: 1250-1300; Middle English gainsaien. See again, say

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

LJ support told me that scheduled posting has been fixed, so this should be posting at 2:51 am or there abouts. And since this is posting hours later than I scheduled it for, the issue isn't resolved.
