Words that should be used more often (parts 4 and 5)

“Cock-a-hoop”

I heard this excellent expression today in the same radio ad as the word “quandary”.

“Fantastic!” I thought, “Two great words for the price of one!”

I eagerly waited to find out what brand the ad was promoting. It might have been something to do with cars (I think boots and bonnets may have been mentioned). But it never became clear.

What a waste of good wordage.
