Waste not, want more

No variations on a theme.

Words (and other things resembling words) that warm my cockles: #5

(As a lover of words, phrases, lyrics, plays on words and so on, and someone seeking ways to better celebrate the little things, I’ve decided to develop a series dedicated especially to these linguistic trinkets.)


Someone explain this word to me. Someone. I dare you. Why, you wonder? Probably not, but of course you’re about to find out. Or click away. That’s an option too.

Gubernatorial is supposedly this classy Americanism for anything relating to a state governor. Hello, America – anything that sounds like “goober” doesn’t get to be classy. Ever. But thanks for the word. I’ll snicker every time.

Here’s to the Gubernator!
