It’s kerfufflerific!

Terry at Nitpicker has the goods on the William Safire wannabes at the Wall Street Journal’s OpinionJournal.

First, a definition (from Merriam-Webster OnLine):

Main Entry: ker?fuf?fle
Pronunciation: k&r-‘f&-f&l
Function: noun
Etymology: alteration of carfuffle, from Scots car- (probably from Scottish Gaelic cearr wrong, awkward) + fuffle to become disheveled
Date: 1946
chiefly British : DISTURBANCE, FUSS

On the other hand, it seems to be the way that the kids over at the Wall Street Journal’s OpinionJournal say “Quit looking at that!” or “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!”

He has more, so read the whole thing because I have a football game to watch and won’t be posting for the next two hours.
