Catch-as-Catch-Can, 6.12.13 (All Mouth and Trousers)

Today’s Internet Rabbit Hole:

Proofreading took me to the AP Style Website. No help.

Then onto the Guardian website. A bit of help.

Then googled “What style guide do British news outlets use?”

That took me to the Guardian’s and Observer’s online style guide. (That is AWESOME that this is online for all to see.)

There, I found a new saying to add to my repertoire: “all mouth and trousers.”

Web definition: Superficial, engaging in empty, boastful talk, but not of real substance.

THANK YOU, INTERNET.
