“The dog ate my homework”

You’ve heard the excuses and you just know it does not ring true. In the case of Dominic Cummings here in the UK, he broke the lockdown that he himself had advised on. He came up with the very feeblest of excuses which included testing his eyesight by driving to Barnard Castle. It was even worse than the dog ate my homework as in his case he cannot find the word sorry in his dictionary. So we are adding a new word to the dictionary. The word: a noun, is Barnard Castle, and I’m sorry for anyone living there that from now on it means something else.

This graphic and others explaining the use of the word is now available on Red Bubble on everything from T shirts to facemarks. Lets get the word adopted into the English language so that no-one forgets what a feeble excuse looks like.
