A critical and satirical gazette about our world.
Tuesday, October 09, 2012
A new common noun has been introduced into the English language. The word is romney, that is, the belief in a thing as a benefit when actually a detriment. For example, believing a person provides employment despite the fact that the person eliminates jobs is a romney. The word obama was considered for the honor but the origins of the two terms indicate slightly less pretension in the latter. Some synonyms for a romney include self-delusion, pipe-dream, and cloud-cuckoo-land.
