Fibabuster

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: fib a bus tur

Sentence: The Right Honorable Member of Parliament for False Creek, Mr. Ben Dover made long, eloquent and passionate speeches. If not strictly full of truths, they were truths as he saw them. By the time he finished his long tirades, he talked around in circles and undid everything he originally stated. He was a master of the fibabuster and would continue to use them until he needed a defibulator. His activity was predictable when you understood that the word "Parliament" came from two French words..."parler (to talk) and mentir (to lie)"!

Etymology: Fib (tell a relatively insignificant lie) & Filibuster (a tactic for delaying or obstructing legislation by making long speeches;a legislator who gives long speeches in an effort to delay or obstruct legislation that he (or she) opposes;to obstruct deliberately by delaying; of legislation)
