Mississauga News - Aug. 14. 2009 - BLOG by Bucky1 - Running On Empty
Nando's the wordIn an earlier blog entry I conveyed my desire to achieve immortality by starting my own word. I've got a few ideas, courtesy of one of our most venerable city councillors. From now on,whenever you get a blast of someone's unreasonable temper, whenever you are mocked or needlessly ridiculed, you should say: "I've been nandoed." If describing the aforementioned behaviour, you would say: "That guy just pulled a nando!" If describing to another person how someone berated you in public to a point where you felt completely humiliated, you would say: "The guy went nando on me." But, say, you were talking about a friend who refuses to apologize when they are so obviously wrong, you might say: "He's so nando." On the other hand, if you are criticizing someone for their socially boorish behaviour, you might say: "What a nando!"

"nando" has now been added to the MISSISSAUGAWATCH GLOSSARY at: http://www.mississaugawatch.ca/blog/?page_id=1441#nando . Credit of course. I also cut-and-pasted your entire definition over because 1: it's criminal to mess with Perfection and 2: I knew you wouldn't nando out on me over copyright infringement. Love ya!

I will be adding "nando" to the MISSISSAUGAWATCH Glossary with credit, of course, to you! Earlier on, when I got routinely screwed over by the evil empire (aka: lied to, denied to, stonewalled, screwed over, etc etc) I coined the highly flexible word verb and descriptor "mississauga". The moment that I was forced to do that, I regretted having voted for "Mississauga" as the name for our city instead of "Sheridan". That so honourable a people as the Mississaugas are now linked to the despicable City of Mississauga evil empire I regret SO MUCH that I... hmmm. This gives me an idea....
