Wednesday's learn and earn...


Wellerism • \WELL-uh-riz-um\ • noun

: an expression of comparison comprising a usually well-known quotation followed by a facetious sequel

Example Sentence: My father's favorite Wellerism is "'We'll have to rehearse that,' said the undertaker as the coffin fell out of the car."

Did you know? Sam Weller, Mr. Pickwick's good-natured servant in Charles Dickens' The Pickwick Papers, and his father were fond of following well-known sayings or phrases with humorous or punning conclusions. For example, in one incident in the book, Sam quips, "What the devil do you want with me, as the man said, w[h]en he see the ghost?" Neither Charles Dickens nor Sam Weller invented that type of word play, but Weller's tendency to use such witticisms had provoked people to start calling them "Wellerisms" by 1839, soon after the publication of the novel.

  1. I have wondered about these Home Collections. Might be worth checking out now.


I love to read your comments, but due to spamming I have had to turn on the word verification again. Sorry for the extra step.
