I came across a word today that intrigued me, so I had to look it up. I got the idea of posting new/interesting/unusual/recollected etc. words, that you come across, here.
My new word of today is: Pantouflage
A friend of mine blogged this about some departing CEO:
The word "pantouflage" was mentioned in the 4th paragraph. I probably would have skipped over it, had it not been for the comments on facebook - which I found funny.
P: It's not often you see the word 'pantouflage' in a piece of writing :-)
M: Heehee! That one's been knocking around in my head for ages - you don't get the chance to flash it about every day.
P: I dont know about that. I think it could and should be used in a range of different circumstance: 'have you seen the new Ford Pantouflage?'; Ive got a terrible case of Pantouflage'; 'If you turn left at Pantouflage, you can't miss it'; 'Is my pantouflage showing?'; He's wearing a kind of pantouflage'; 'She spoke with such pantouflage'; the crowd was whipped into an absolute Pantouflage!"...and so on.
The definition here, I find amusing, too.
