I think Baruch is a master of catachresis.

LOL!  I had to look THAT one up.  And I'm still not sure.  Like "spoonerisms" or "malapropisms"?  Like "surfacing" a submarine?  I don't think I'm understanding this one quite right.

According to my Orphic app, which has lots of obscure words, it means "misuse or strained use of words, as in a mixed metaphor, occurring either in error of for rhetorical effect."

It seems to me that Baruch does that kind of thing a lot.

Total agreement on that...

Baruch makes me do it.  I am totally innocent, innocent I say!.  If I ignore him, I get complaints.  If I respond, I get complaints.  Some things, you can't win.

Setting up no-win situations and getting chumps to buy in, is how civilization moves forward.  And I don't even have any Infinity Stones!

I think Baruch is a master of catachresis.

"the use of a word in a way that is not correct, for example, the use of mitigate for militate."

No, you are guilty of it this time.  What I am guilty of is "poetic license", which isn't the same thing at all.  And it is like 007, a license to kill boredom.

Continuing the Churchill/MI6 motif ...

But you've done some work with QM?

I cringe more at word-shifting.  Meaning when people transfer a word in a phrase they don't know correctly to one that is almost right.

Doodling for dawdling for example, or nip it in the butt, statue of limitations, for all intensive purposes, etc...

I do a lot of that for comic effect.  Sorry about that, but I won't stop being me, I don't expect you to change either.

Well, yes "comic effect" IS your specialty.  I just wish it weren't.  And I note you do less of it when we are cross-posting.  I'm your "Good Effect". 

Don't take that to mean more bad jokes.  You can be interesting when thoughtful.
