Amos: "Yesteryear!" Who invented that stupid word?! It's utterly vapid. We might as well talk about yesterweek, yestermonth, yesterdecade, or yestermillennium. The parlance of the masses is cobbled by beefwits and boneheads! Edda: It makes one hearken back to a time when public discourse was simpler, calmer, and more enjoyable. Amos: When was that? yesterepoch? Edda: yesteraminuteago.
