Pithy Words

I just recently overheard the word “four flusher” used in a conversation and when I looked it up, I liked it a lot. I thought I’d share it with you.

“four flusher” = a person who makes false or pretentious claims, Empty boasts, or who continually lies. (originally referred to a person who would misrepresent that they had a flush - a poker hand comprised of five cards all of one suit (hearts, spades, clubs, or diamonds) - when they only had four cards of one suit.)

Unfortunately, I know a few four flushers – bet you do too.

Four flusher... that sounds gross! I'm sorry, but when I hear the phrase "four flusher," I think of a particularly disgusting bowel movement! And that DOES go along with your tacky theme...
