JBelle: Best DFOisms?

"I want to talk about The Best DFO-ism. Ap-hollow-gy for sure is in the mix. Fer Shame fer sure. And ...?" -- JBelle.

DFO's favorite:

  • ap-hollow-gy
  • unavoidable for comment
  • f'shame (although I had to give this one up when a reader complained that it sounded like f'ing shame).
  • rumorama
  • cuss-tomers
  • facryinoutloud
  • her-story
  • cheek well tongued
  • wishin'/hopin'/prayin'
  • rep-PU-tation
