Justbec's Odd and Unusual Info of the Day - 5/18

Flummery
(FLUM-er-ee)
Noun:
-A sweet dish made with beaten eggs, milk, sugar, and flavorings.
-Empty compliments.
-Nonsense.

From Early 17th century (denoting a dish made with oatmeal or wheatmeal boiled to a jelly): from Welsh llymru; perhaps related to llymrig 'soft, slippery'.

Used in a sentence:
“Feeding flummery to the fulgurous faun failed to flatter, as the fulsome fainéant feigned fullness.”

Flummery is a sweet dish made from boiled oats or meal. It also happens to mean an insincere compliment. Or it can also mean a bunch of hooey. I guess one needs to rely on context to know which.
