Words We Don’t Want Forgotten: Malarkey

Malarkey is an important word, handed down by our forefathers to express our disgust with the phoniness of life. I want this word preserved, so when I am a crotchety 50 year old man and one of those damned blacks steals my lawn ornaments, I’ll say ‘what a bunch of malarkey’.
