Stuart's Word Spot: Wacky

Sculpture by Salvador DalíImage via Wikipedia
Wacky: noun - A mad, peculiar or crazy person, an eccentric. Adjective - Left-handed, eccentric, peculiar, crazy, mad, weird.

'Salvador Dali could be described as a wacky, due to his odd and eccentric behaviour.'

'There was a growing trend in the 1980s to describe something as wacky if it was a little bit unusual, different or outrageous, which was a shame, as it devalued the word through over use.'
