So, the “A” in the Milky Way wasn’t chocolate?

25 Mar

nugartory – adj. of no value, useless

Classical Usage:  Those people who did not see an A on Arthur’s chest as he heaved his dying breath felt that the good pastor was merely acting out a final parabolic sermon, by “yielding up his breath in the arms of that fallen woman, to express ot the world how utterly nugatory is the choicest of man’s own righteousness.”

Classically Mad Usage: Shoot, all this time I thought surely it was a candy bar descriptor.  My vocabulary knowledge is just that nugatory.
