Deeplistic – Wednesday’s Wordapod

Having trouble deciding whether something or someone may be too deep or too shallow? This Wordapod is just for you.

 

Deeplistic is one of over 250 creative wordapods to be found in Wordapodia, Volume One: An Encyclopedia of Real Fake Words. 

 

 

 

 

Deeplistic

 

Deeplistic (adj)characterized by both overly simplistic and very profound analysis, reasoning or use of emotion

 

So,Who Knew…?

 

Semanticians (people with little or no lives who debate the exact meaning of all words in our lexicon) generally believe that deeplistic does not denote something that is halfway between overly simple and profound—it is both. Edwin Eggnut, President of the American Society of Semanticians Honoring Obligatory Lexicon Exploratory Studies, noted the following about this entry.

 

“A deeplistic book is one that will both move you with its depth, and at the same time, shock you with its simplicity. The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran fits this category for me. By consensus, our society also found the following to be deeplistic:  95% of Marc Chagall’s paintings; 83% of Charlie Kaufman’s films; 97% of Yogi Berra’s observations and 53% of Matthew J. Goldberg’s poetry.”

 

When I asked Eggnut why the other 47% of my poetry was not considered to be deeplistic, he mentioned that the society had only read 64% of it. I ended our discussion 77% confused.
