Volume 22.

Still more stuff that should be in the dictionary but isn’t.

Previous installments of the Blog d’Elisson Dictionary may be found in the Archives.

f’oh! pas [fo-pah] (n) - A mistake, specifically one of the sort that makes you smack yourself in the forehead and exclaim “D’oh!” in the manner of Homer Simpson.

A poetic illustration, courtesy of Mark Hollis:

     Was ill.

In his delirium
He talked about Miriam.

This was an error
As his wife was a terror

     As Joan.

That, Esteemed Readers, is a f’oh! pas.

[A tip o’ th’ Elisson fedora goes to Erica Sherman for this one.]
