I read Popinjay and instantly had the image of a dandy in a 1800's movie French man sniffing his cuff with a white wig on his curly head. Proudly, I must admit that I was close to popinjay. The definition is someone who wears strange clothes, so then, I wondered if they Elton John. Is Elton John a popinjay? What about Sarah Palin? I am having a good time thinking of popinjays.
Can you think of any? What about Johnny Depp? How am I doing? Okay, I'll stop now. What about Snookie? Yes, Snookie.
