Wonder if "to flyte" inspired Waugh's naming of Sebastian Flyte in Brideshead Revisited ...

Meanwhile, for pure insult gold - perhaps platinum, even - don't miss Jezebel's listings of its Trump slurs here - http://theslot.jezebel.com/every-word-jezebel-used-to-describe-donald-trump-in-201-1746957022 - and here - http://theslot.jezebel.com/in-honor-of-donald-trumps-70th-birthday-here-are-70-wa-1781899319. I'm particularly fond of "nacho cheese golem."

Jessica: "Nacho cheese golem" is indeed brilliant, but that link has a superfluous period (or something). This link works: http://theslot.jezebel.com/in-honor-of-donald-trumps-70th-birthday-here-are-70-wa-1781899319

And good speculation about Sebastian Flyte!
