After watching 300 the other day I thought about how seldom we talk about our honor nowadays. Do you realize how long it’s been since I’ve defended my honor? Back in the olden days (according to movies), honor was the most valuable thing you could have and defend. Now we have plasma televisions and SUV’s. So I figured it’s time to bring “honor” back into our everyday conversations. From now on people don’t bother me, they offend my honor. I don’t disagree with anyone anymore, I defend my honor. Try it, you’ll feel nobler instantly.
Speaking of trying to start a word revolution, what words have you tried to implement into our modern cultural lexicon? Here are a few others I’ve tried:
- Crisp (meaning “cool” or “great” or “awesome”)
- The Dean (meaning “cool person” or “the man”)
- Coin (meaning “money” or “cash”, not realizing that others were already using this)
- Swiss (meaning “sweet” or “awesome”)
Of course none of these caught on in quite the way that I had hoped, though I think “the dean” and “crisp” are…well, crisp.
