Mash ’em up .. Just like tunes and film..

The English language evolves at a dizzying rate you can get some great and funny results when you mash up existing words to make new ones. The video features plenty that I’d never heard of and the occasional that I misinterpreted like “mansplaining” for example. I was convinced this was a type of exaggerated complaining done by a man when he’s feeling “under the weather”. I certainly got hold of the wrong end of the stick there (= misunderstood)! Watch and listen to find out more – I do hope you won’t be “anticipointed”.
