Somewhat overused

the term genius should be

offered sparingly


by Scooj


Yesterday’s haiku from which the last line was taken to create the first line of today’s:


Look on the bright side

for a Pythonesque Cliché

somewhat overused

  1. Funny you should write about genius. I’ve always thought it to be one of those words to be careful about using, insomuch that to refer to something or someone as genius tacitly implied that one were of the same intellectual level. Trump is a good example, always referring to himself as a genius.
    There’s another word that gets overused, brilliant. It used to mean someone who was very bright. Nowadays its used differently and often.
