Word For Today

Posted: 01/07/2008 by that's Elbert in education, word

I get this daily email which features different unusual words. Today’s word is mare’s nest. It is defined as this:

  1. A confused mess.
  2. A hoax or an illusory discovery.

I’ve got to use this one sometime. Any ideas?

  1. swampcritter2 says:

    The hubbub surrounding anticipation of this term’s adoption into the vernacular is tantamount to a hen’s fart in a gale.

  2. Alan Coffey says:

    I suggest it’s use in conjunction with the NH primary results. It is up to the reader to determine how.
