The obscure word of the week is pasquinade

This week’s obscure English word is pasquinade.

It’s a style of satire usually delivered in a public place. The word originated in the sixteenth century.

Your challenge: go into a public place and deliver a pasquinade. Go on – I double-dog dare ya!

One thought on “The obscure word of the week is pasquinade

  1. I’ve been tempted to launch into a pasquinade at times (without knowing the term), but have refrained, wishing to avoid a trip to the hospital for a psychiatric assessment.
