Tuesday, May 17, 2016 – Panjandrum

Good morning, boys and girls. Our vocabulary word for the day is panjandrum. No it is not a city in India. It is a noun meaning a self-important or pretentious official.

Also see: politicians, football coaches, certain bosses, and other assorted ostentatious, conceited, and pompous, ego inflated individuals.

Panjandrum should not be confused with pan tantrum which is a big temper tantrum and what the above throw when they do not get their way.
