Just Another Word in the Dictionary - Malarkey

Malarkey n. insincere or misleading talk

if one were to
politely
rephrase the original
definition
to indicate
its more common
acceptance
as lying,
then let's just assume
that today it has been
raised to an artform:

The level of malarkey
in public discord today
is quite impressive,
wouldn't you say?

  1. Another of my favourite words! You keep picking them. And yes, there is a load of malarky in the public sphere at the moment. An insane amount!
