It's time for a new feature here at First Draft. I like new features and starting one satisfies my inner extrovert or outer introvert or some such shit. Anyway, you may have noticed that I am fond of old slang words and phrases; largely because of my love of old movies. It's time to formalize this by throwing an arcane phrase or word out there and seeing if it sticks.
This week's inaugural phrase comes to us from my old friend Elzabeth Brion:
There are some of you who got the morbs over the end of the World Cup whereas I had them over the end of the NBA playoffs. Victorian slang rocks, y'all. I bet Disraeli rarely had the morbs and Gladstone had a permanent case but I digress. It's what I do.
If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment or shoot them at me on the Tweeter Tube. Unless, that is, you got a bad case of the morbs…
