FDP Forum / Moe's Tavern (_8^(I) / I apologize for my "Fatberg" error

I apologize for muttering under my breath, that my forward path in the grocery store aisle was being impeded by a "Fatberg."

I was unaware that the term, which had just been added by Merrian-Webster, to its online dictionary, actually refers to "a large mass of fat and solid waste that collects in a sewer system."

The three-ax-handle-wide derriere before me, symbiotically attached to a shopping cart, piled high with food enough to alleviate all hunger in Yemen, lacked the "sewer system" aspect of the definition.

On the freeway, you get the fast lane, the slow lane and the break-down lane. In the grocery store, these are all combined into one lane. And when a metaphorical dump truck overturns you can become downright claustrophobic .... especially if there is another one coming up behind you.

"Solopreneur: a solo entrepreneur."

As opposed to what? It's always been singular. Unless this refers to a business where the president, owner, CEO, CFO, corporate spiritual advisor, poobah, etc., are all the same person. 'Social media influencer', for example [eye roll]
