Wicked Word Wednesday: Pabulum

You can’t create a political movement out of pabulum.

– Robert Reich

. . .

Greetings logophiles and other creative types!

It’s time for Wicked Word Wednesday, and the Wicked Word is:


pab·u·lum [\ˈpa-byə-ləm\]


something (as writing or speech) that is insipid, simplistic, or bland

intellectual sustenance

food; especially: a suspension or solution of nutrients in a state suitable for absorption

Hey, I don’t pick the words, the algorithm does.

There’s a reason I chose to call it Wicked Word Wednesday.

And yes, I do know the rest of the words for the rest of the year.

  1. This has caused quite a conundrum

    Created by using this word, pabulum

    It is meant to concern light weight material

    Nothing serious like a bad case of bacterial

    An infection that spreads and destroys

    Pabulum is more for kids play toys
