Wednesday Word on Thursday!

Blimp: n. (echoic sound caused by thumping the airship bag with a finger: probably coined (1915) byA.D. Cunningham Brit. Naval Air Officer) 1. a small nonrigid or semirigid airship 2.(Blimp, creation of Brit. cartoonist David Low) a pompous, smug, highly conservative person - adj. blimpish

Oh I can't wait until I can say to someone. "You are the most blimpish so and so I have ever met!!" "That yarn is very blimpish, don't you think?"
