Isn't that the most wonderful comment? Festuche is a gift that just keeps on giving!Hi - just wanted to comment about your (three year old) entry about the origin about the word "festuche" - my mother (an IBM employee) used it when talking to me last weekend while I was home visiting, and caused quite a dinner table discussion. We broke out the OED and couldn't find it there, and my little brother booted up the computer and tried dictionary.com. Failing that, he googled the term. Imagine my surprise when the usually somber and sullen 22 year old burst out in hysterical laughter upon finding your story. It was good to hear him laugh, and makes for a great story.
In case you need a festuche booster shot, here's the original entry
