Wandering Word Thoughts

Do you know anyone who "worships" Elvis Presley or Marilyn Monroe? That's "necrolatry" -- worship of the dead.

I suggest bringing back the old-fashioned word "trumpery". (See below.)

Were you feeling some "awumbuk" after the holiday's? That's the feeling of emptiness after your guests leave. (Okay, maybe you weren't feeling that.)

"'Very' is the most useless word in the English language and can always come out. More than useless, it is treacherous because it invariably weakens what it is intended to strengthen." --Mark Twain. Very true! Ooops.

I imagine you can't ever unsee a "grandissimus". That's the penis of a whale.
