Posted in Bombast, Bonkers Away

Hello What? 😎

Hi Everyone!

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.”

Have a great day! Hope

Retired in 2015, lived in Chicago, IL all my life. Love blogging and knitting. I'm sure people think my blogs are - hmm - "bonkers". I've read there are eight (8) type of writers. Closet writer, eternal writer, hestiant writer, innovative writer, inspired writer, literate writer, logical writer, and last but not least savvy writer. Still trying to figure out what I am. I like to use clip art or photos in my blog. Try to relate the clip art and/or photos to what I am writing. Eight (8) writers information found on Thank you for stopping by!
