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. He is great at collecting facts but somehow never gets to the point of deciding what he thinks. 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.
