SOCKDOLOGER

sock-DOLL-ah-jur -- (n.) A decisive blow or remark.


You'll know it when you've delivered one of these; Sockdologers are often accompanied by the silence of flabbergast and defeat -- usually rendered in front of unsuspecting witnesses with whom your reputation may rise or fall as a result. A favorite wellspring of the witty sockdologer was the great Winston Churchill, who casually remarked on one of his foes: "We know that he has, more than any other man, the gift of compressing the largest amount of words into the smallest amount of thought." There is of course a downside to mastering the fine art of the sockdologer... return fire. Sockdologers are the fastest route to collecting grudgeful nemeses; render your blows wisely.
