What the heck is a buzzwig or buzz wig? Do I really want to know? Aw come on! You have to take a guess! I would think it has something to do with a wig – right? You got the wig part right! Buzz, buzz, buzz = No bees involved. Bees are always in a bonnet. How about a “buzz” hair cut? You’re getting close! I GOT IT! It’s a large bushy wig. Hurray! Finally, congratulations!!
Meet Boilerplate History’s Mechanical Marvel written by Paul Guinan & Anina Bennett. Boilerplate was designed by Professor Archibald Campion in 1893 as a prototype to help save lives. For more information there are many sites – Goodreads.com, Bing.com, Librarian From Alaska.Wordpress.com
Is this backwards? Yes it is and the reason why it’s a printing boiler plate used for newspaper eons ago. I’m sure you will find some people are still using them to publish their local newspapers. See Herald Extra.com
Bombast? What the heck is bombast? It has nothing to do with bombs. Do you have any idea of what it means? You can’t look in the dictionary yet. Okay, okay you can look it up in the dictionary.
In case anyone that is a couple of eons younger than me this is Joan Crawford. Her movie star career started in the 1920’s. How do you like those shoulder pads?
I can’t forget the men, now can I. Here we have Fred Astaire He started in movies in the 1930s
This man’s speech is full of bombast words I have never heard of. Did you hear the last word he said? I have to go home and look in my dictionary. Now a days modern Enlish “speech or writing that is stuffed or padded with pretense and unnessary verbiage.”
What the heck? Let me break up the word: Mal = bad or badly, Apert = open, honest, Put them both together you get “malapert” = a bold or impudent person.
In other words someone who is “open” or “honest” in a bad way.
Do you know anyone that is like that? If you said no, then I think you better recheck your family, friends, neighbors, work place. Still no, wake up! Smell the coffee! Smell the roses! Come on now, recheck!! Recheck!!! I know you can do it!!!! Oh My Gosh!! Am I being “malapert” in my writing today??
Have a great day! Hope Clip Art from Bing.com Malapart word from M-W’s Word of the Day Malapart definition from Merriam-Webster Dictionary.com
