    Was Trevor the winner because he survived a day longer? Or was he the winner in the early-grave competition because he was three years younger when he died?

    Short for complimentary. I usually hear it in the context of giving a friend free tickets to your band’s concert. “Come to the show tomorrow. I’ll comp you.”

    Don’t go. “The Wicker Man” does not end happily.
