Wednesday word: piffle

piffle: [pif-uh l]

Noun: Nonsense, trivial or senseless talk.

Verb: (used without an object) To talk nonsense

Origin: verb form: 1840-1850, noun form, 1870s. Unknown etymology. Possibly a blend of piddle and trifle, so it's likely the word is an English invention.

Short and sweet, but I really like the word! ^_^
