Clever definitions of ordinary words

by Greg Krehbiel on 28 October 2017

Every once in a while you run across a clever definition of a word. For example, one definition of punctuality is “a proper respect for other people’s time.”

My brother John defines a sweater as something you wear when your mother is cold.

A committee is a body that keeps minutes and wastes hours, and a secret is something you tell one person at a time.

Have you heard any clever definitions?
