Isn’t it a shame that shows only seem to become cult classics once they’re over?
That’s what seems to be happening with Schitt’s Creek, a Canadian comedy that recently aired its final season. For Vocabbett readers, though, this show offers more than just some laughs…
You might also learn a word or two from the show’s inimitable matriarch, Moira Rose!
I’ll be honest. When I first saw the show, I was a little confused by her character. I couldn’t figure out what her accent was supposed to be, among other things, but now I adore her.
For any fans of Schitt’s Creek (who are also looking to boost their vocabulary!), New York Magazine put together a hilarious little montage “pettifogging” Moira’s ridiculously large (and hilarious) vocabulary.
Watch it below!
I dive more into a few of the words in the video — and how you can remember them! — in episode 45 of the Vocabbett podcast.
Pettifogging? Unasinous? Bombilate? Are these even words?
Well…kind of…but even if you can’t find them all in the dictionary, most have a legitimate origin somewhere, check out etymologically, and are downright amazing, so let’s just say yes!
