It Pays to Enrich Your Word Power

I’m listening to Bob Geldof on Radio 4 complaining about eBay interfering with his attempt to feed his ego… I mean, feed the starving children of Africa.

Your new word for today as used by Mr Geldof: pusillanimous. In case you think Bob Geldof has suddenly gone all posh and highbrow, he also told PM that eBay could shove their offer of a donation up their arse.

I’m not sure that — even speaking figuratively — an auction website has a definable arse that things could be shoved up.

UPDATE: the story I linked to above has been updated. Suffice to say, eBay are no fun.
