P

police

suffix

  • added to a standard English word or phrase, to form a phrase meaning people who are rigidly pedantic on the subject in question, and tend to correct others, e.g. "grammar police"; "poetry police".
    I know the poetry police would say that that doesn't rhyme properly, but who cares?
    The grammar police would object to that as a double-negative, but Shakespeare used them, so there.

  • In vaudeville and theater days, large back drops were counter weighted on rope pulley systems. Sometimes by accident or on purpose these large sandbags would come crashing down on an actors while on stage, totally completely taking him out totally unawares, or blind sided. The term refers to anyone completely and totally stopped by some means that they never saw coming.
