No political biases here but you will agree when I say that Shashi Tharoor is the master of lexical range in the English language. His choice of vocabulary never ceases to amaze us. From ‘exasperating farrago of distortions’ to ‘webaqoof’ and ‘snollygaster’, Tharoor has taught us all a lot of new and twisted words. Remember how these tough words became a matter of internet memes and jokes?

Well, to the sheer delight of Twitterati, he gave them a new hashtag to joke about. He tweeted, ironically, about how people make parodies of his speaking/writing style, and got spoofed again!

This time the word from his tweet that went trending with memes and jokes is ‘rodomontade’.  Those of our readers who know what this word means, we hail to you! Those of us, who haven’t heard this word before; it means ‘boastful or inflated talk or behavior’.

Now, it is needless to say that #rodomontade has been trending whole day and people are having a ball on twitter. Twitter users are just amazed and rather speechless about Tharoor’s knowledge about literature. We could already sense the situation turning a matter of memes and jokes again. This time too it happened, this is what people have been tweeting.

 

Look at this picture.

What made this entire situation more interesting was a well-timed and witty tweet from former Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah who endorsed Tharoor as a teacher of impressive English.

 

Well, we are enjoying Farrago 2.0. How about you?
