Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Vacuous

Vacuous: adjective - devoid of matter; containing nothing tangible or visible; without ideas; unintelligent; expressionless; empty of content or substance; meaningless; idle, indolent; not profitably occupied.

'Sybil gazed into the distance, pretending to divine the future by reading the cloud formations, but she was undone by the vacuous expression on her bland face.'

'You, sir, are an unmitigated, sly, devious, under-educated and vacuous moron; no wonder the best you could do was become an MP.'
