The newest fad word to appear like a brown streak across the loo paper of the English language are the words that end in -tastic. (That’s being way too harsh on the poor little -tastic words, but I’m a way too satisfied with that metaphor to delete it.)
It was marvelous and hip and funny when I heard my friend Laura K. describe something as being craptastic. Fad words are like that. The first time, it’s wonderful.
Until then, it’s golden.
(PS: My coworker, K, just gave me a related word: Craptacular, and it’s origin, which is Bart Simpson, of course! She uses that one around her house. Come to think of it, I may have heard that one before.)
