    Default Swagmire

    I had a funny dream last night. A dream that featured Donald Trump and the word "Swagmire", a word I'd never consciously heard before.

    Upon waking, While this word was still fresh in my mind, I reached for my mobile and a quick Google revealed, courtesy of Urban Dictionary, that swagmire is defined as "an event or contest where one must prove their masculinity".

    How fitting, particularly in light of the current contretemps with North Korea....

    Lord knows how this word entered my subconscious mind. I seem to be getting inundated by things that emanate from a another species speaking a different language and living in a completely different sphere of existence to the one in which I inhabit.

    The denizens of social meeja, in other words

    Anyway, there's your word of the day for you. Swagmire.

    What a good idea to solve global conflict. Whichever national leader has the smallest knob must concede.

    You ought to have a go on the story thread.

    PS Hang on that's a bit sexist. To allow Merkel etc. to have a chance it would have to be a very complex formula balancing knob and fanny sizes. Stephen Hawking could sort it.

    TM the PM might struggle. ...although she has got BoJo, so maybe she'd win.

    You just got in ahead of my update.
    Funny. When I thought of female leaders our PM did not spring to mind. Can't think why.

    Were you aware of the word before Xoggy?

    I rather like it. It has something of the Louisiana swamps about it.

    Get spray cans, and emblazon every wall and parked car in your town with the word, like Banksy gone haywire.

    That way everyone will be talking about it and the word will end up in the dictionary (although you'll end up in jail!)

    That's more or less how the word "quiz" was introduced in Dublin in the 18th century, after a drunken bet.
