I keep coming across words I’ve never heard before. Have I been living in a cave? Seriously.
Today’s great discovery is nothingburger. Mary Matalin, the Republican strategist probably best known for being married to the odd-looking Democratic strategist James Carville, said it during a show on CNN. I don’t know what she was talking about because I wasn’t really paying attention. But nothingburger jumped out at me.
From Urban Dictionary: Nothingburger: something lame, dead-end, a dud, insignificant; especially something with high expectations that turns out to be average, pathetic, or overhyped. “Much to the team’s dismay, the number one pick in this year’s draft turned out to be a nothingburger.”
