The William F. Buckley Jr. prize for Best Polysyllabic Moment to a Supporting Employee goes to the newsletter for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, which today, with nose ever so slightly turned upward, managed to sneak in a word that even its highfalutin readership probably has to look up in the dictionary:
The Museum not only has pulchritudinous gallery interiors, but also features Central Park as its backdrop--offering stunning light and spectacular views in the spaces listed below.
In case you were wondering, pulchritudinous means nothing like it sounds: Princeton's WordNet defines it as "used of persons only; having great physical beauty; "pulchritudinous movie stars." And this beauty was slipped in between links to Central Park-themed displays and a Poussin exhibition.
Cheers to the nameless author whose boredom at work manifested itself into this buried gem at the end of the newsletter.
