This week’s obscure English word is persiflage.
It means engaging in witty banter. You know (just to channel Monty Python for a moment): “I say, Wrigglesworth, bally Jerry just gave the Pongoes a bit of old stick, what”. “What was that, Algy?” “Bally Jerry just popped one on the Pongoes.” “I’m sorry, old chap, I’m afraid I don’t understand your banter”. “Well, Wriggles old boy, it’s perfectly ordinary persiflage”.
Your challenge: write a sentence or two in the comments using this word.
