Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Rabelaisian

François RabelaisImage via Wikipedia
Rabelaisian: adjective - characteristic of or resembling the writing of French satirist François Rabelais (c 1494–1553); demonstrating exuberant imagination and language, coarse humour, and satire.

'I'd count it an honour if I could write a book of such Rabelaisian power that it would be banned by the Vatican, in the same way as the works of François Rabelais were banned.'
