This week’s word wizard is inspired by the recently riotous rhetoric surrounding U.S. presidential elections. There’s been a lot of hootin’-n-hollerin’ about silly things like ‘fact-checking,’ women’s issues, and the environment. I know I’ve added my fair share to the chorus. But like this…rooster…<<.>>…signalling the start of another day, we can sometimes benefit from the noise. I mean, we needed a wake-up call anyway, right? And besides, it feels good to expel some hot air, get things out in the open. Even if, on first hearing, you have a strong urge to throttle the rooster.
Keep your Fridays funky and fresh…and nerd out with your word out. ;D
cacophony: a harsh discordance or meaningless mixture of sound; (music) frequent use of dissonance, sounding a stark relationship that’s difficult to understand.
