Fritz subscribes to “The Factor File: The Official Newsletter of BillOReilly.com,” and he occasionally forwards them to me when there’s something particularly hilarious. Today, Fritz noticed Bill’s started sending a “Word of the Week.”
That’s right. Myrmidon: A faithful follower who follows commands without questioning them.
I don’t know what’s making me laugh harder – that “myrmidon” was chosen as the word of the week in the first place, or the supposition that the slack-jawed gits who subscribe to “The Factor File” not for laughs are actually going to incorporate “myrmidon” into their monosyllabic vocabularies.
The best part, however, is the use of myrmidon in a sentence…
So true, Bill. So true.
