MD is a !SPAZ zone. While the meaningless of one's entries is assured simply by coming here, the essence of drivel is not a free-for-all. What you say may be absurd, goofy, flippant, oafish, trite, dense, dry, daffy, unnerving, self-serving, undeserving, Julius Erving, puckish, bookish, peckish, wry, ditzy, tautological, ontological, philological, scatological, humble, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, or reverent.
But giddily obnoxious is right out.

... and if you want to sound as intelligent as Michael, you can always use language untilites or text generators.

I humbly submit that all my entries on JavaRanch are organic products, generated by an on-board, proprietary set of utilities that have been refined over decades of development. Neither is any googling used, much less required, in my campaigns against certain uppity markup zealots. :P

"Uppity markup zealots" is a metonymy, a rhetorical device that is used by ontological thinkers, predominantly those fled their doctoral studies in literature, as a substitute for a substantial argument.

Great link Map. Now I can impress everyone with my pseudo-intellectualism by quoting the names of obscure rhetorical devices.

And no, I'm really honestly NOT making a comment about you. I use self deprecation all the time.
