Compliment of the year!
Reading one of my articles on the Conrad Black trial, my friend Eamonn Rafferty sent me this email:
'Can't decide whether you're for or agin’ Conrad; probably the former, but in a less-than-unequivocal way, if so. I think I shall submit the following neologism for consideration to the OED:
undudleyedwards, n, adj, vb int
uncharacteristic equivocation in matters of opinion, discourse and argumentation.
Usage: (adj) "He took a very undudleyedwards approach for the sake of world peace."
n: "She was a bit undudleyedwards - what could be wrong?"
undudleypussy: term of abuse within rap and hip-hop musical genres to denote person who dilutes lryics of songs to avoid censorship, as in "Yo, muthafuckin' undudleypussy.”'
