Hold on to your viscera!

via Daily Prompt: Visceral

Visceral seems to be the word of the moment. It is freely used to describe any experience, for example a good film or a piece of music, that had an impact and the speaker often puts a fist to their solar plexus for emphasis.

I had a truly visceral experience at one of the comedy clubs in London recently, The Comedy Store. The show is a raucous form of entertainment for the over-18s and not for the faint-hearted or sqeamish. The artistes are butt-clenchingly crude, politically incorrect and really quite personal if you dare to sit on the front row. They are also side-splitting, so do hold onto your stomach and be prepared to maintain continence through activating your pelvic floor.

    1. It is annoying when really good, hearty words get taken into common usage like this and the original meaning becomes diluted. I notice today’s word is ‘homage’ and I have been hearing it increase in usage relating to clothes and fashion eg I am wearing this as an homage to so and so…’. Anyway, I like the sound of your drinking game! 😀
