One liner Wednesday: Alternative dictionary…

05 Jul

I’ve given up trying to judge whether these alternative definitions are going to be successful in the real world, or only in my head, so I’ll just leave this here and see what happens;

“Platitude” – The demeanor of a waiter.

    Dale, I think you need an alternative dictionary definition of “spamalot” for Mr. Transit.

    Sometimes, these make me think, but they are always fun! I got this one right away, and I might use the word when I get one of “those” waiters – the ones who seem to think no one is good enough to dine in their restaurant.

      Yep, spot on, they’re the ones this is directed at

    Gotta pronounce it with a long A (PLAY-ti-tude) to understand this one…

    As a former waiter in college, I laughed out loud at this one. Nice job. I also thought of John Cleese in Monti Python’s The Meaning of Life. “Oh come on. One little thin mint.”

    Are you planning on doing a book of these? Like the Viz Profanisaurus -only not as sweary?

      I do seem to be getting quite a collection, it’s worth thinking about, certainly.
