Metoometoo

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: mētoōmētoō

Sentence: Sheldon is a confirmed metoometoo. He has no opinions to call his own. Maybe it is his Swiss upbringing but he steadfastly remains neutral on every topic you could mention.

In a clear case of "whichever way the wind blows" any opinion expressed gets an immediate concurrence and cascade of supporting facts.

Etymology: me (used by a speaker to refer to himself or herself as the object of a verb or preposition) + too (in addition; also) slightly derived from Star Wars droid R2D2.
