Voodoo Tuesday

Putting this first so y'all will read it: I'm going to be unavailable to post for the next two weeks. If someone responsible (re: more responsible than I am) would like to fill in for me on the next two Tuesdays, that'd be wonderful. Please let me know!


po-faced [POH-feyst]

adjective
having an overly serious demeanor or attitude; humorless.

"I'm sure Vince thinks I'm the most po-faced human being because I wouldn't laugh at his stupid fart jokes," Elizabeth griped to her friend.

I wonder how often this is used in British English; I read it in a book by my favorite author (British) and felt the need to look it up. Not a common word here in the States.
