A ballyflustercluck for the rolipoligopoly

A clusterfuck is a big, complicated, fuck-up.

A flustercluck is what our chooks do every morning when I give them food.

A filibuster is a long speech to waste time.

A flillybluster is a long speech to waste time by a not very good speaker.

A ballyfluster is a long speech to waste time by a speaker who is, frankly, appalling.

A ballyflustercluck is a long speech to waste time by a chicken.

An oligopoly is rule by rich people.

Oh, and a rolipoligopoly is a rule by lovable fat people, like Chesterton.

I long for the day when we, too, in Australia have a true rolipoligopoly. 

UPDATE! - Here's one definition I don't have a word for: 'wanting to scratch your bum while you are walking up the street but not being able to because you know there is a person right behind you who will see every little detail.' What's the word for that, anyone know? (Wordless definitions, there's another idea for a blog post...)
