PGW

November 20, 2008

Bob Meinz was the creator of the expression “Perfectly good word; I don’t know why people don’t use it more” which he initialized into the acronym PGWIDKWPDUIM or the simple (and much easier to remember) PGW. Bob delights in language and wordplay, sometimes bursting into Gilbert and Sullivan or similar at the gym. I think of him and the PGW whenever I use the word ‘plethora’.
