Palinomenclature!! by rick694uk on 17 January 2004 1:31am
 
"Guys",

"nomenclature": n. the terminology used in a particular science, art, activity.

What terminology does Michael use in his programmes, or books? What are the recurrent terms used to describe him in book or film reviews? What are the recurrent terms used on this board?

What - stand by, whilst I clear my exit before pulling the plug on the floodgates - terminology do you use to describe some aspect of Michael, his work, etc?

In order to collate, compile and add the definitive Palinite's dictionary to our Palinite armoury, your help would be much appreciated.

"NICE"----Always used to descibe Michael, although he doesn't like to hear it!

Oooh, cheap shot, Patty!

I don't think Michael would be impressed!

(Whisper): But it would have been the first word out of my bag as well! But keep that between ourselves!

In the beginning I was told he is consistantly "British" in that though, to this American, many of his words are missplelled and his inferences obscure. Since he is consistant at both he is thus correct.

Since I'm not British I can't really help you. All I know is John Cleese was on one of our most popular TV shows last night, "Will and Grace", and he was hilarious. It's all in the subtlety I guess.

How about "this is a travel site for and about people's travels, not about me." He doesn't say those exact words, but does bring it up now and then . . . do you think he maybe hinting about something? [grins]

Oops! Couldn't help poking fun at that. Sorry Michael!

How about "Happy Travels" that is used a lot when writing his autograph in a fans book? Also, I've seen him use "you lucky, lucky bastards" a few times in his messages.

Do you think he sometimes jumps out at people on the street and says, "nobody expects the Spanish Inqusition!" (sorry about the spelling on that word)

Okay, I've rambled on enough, time for someone else to ramble . . . . . . . . .






GO!

I totally agree. Since MP is someone who has the same likes and curiosities about people and places as myself, it's alsmost like being there when he travels. I doubt you'd be as interested in your local newspaper opera critic's opinions of your favorite rock bands.

VITAL - he always says that! It's a vital clue, or a vital connection.

SORT OF - an adjective he uses for most everything.

Also, his meals are often COPIOUS, which doesn't necessarily mean they're good, but he never wants to say anything negative.
