Isn't that a great word? C'mon - you can use it both in polite society to describe certain countries' fiscal policies, your father-in-law's eating habits or the people you see on the way to work. Or at work if you're not lucky. I would like to hear other fascinating adjectives that also are versatile and just a wacked-out bit off the mainstream vocabulary. Nebbish and wonky are two more somewhat dated words that I wish would come back into play!
