It's a word I developed a strong dislike for when I was in the Army. I heard it used so often in descriptive language that I cringed whenever anyone uttered Co-pa-set-ic. And, usually that how it was pronounced, with the speaker moving his head in a left/right motion with each syllable, on the order of, Co...left, pa....right, set....back left, ic....back right.

Which, didn't make a lot of sense to me seeing as how the words was mostly used as an affirmative, coupled with the side to side movement of the head which was clear indication of negative. So, while the mouth language said yes, the body language said no. Therefore, one was never sure as to what the speaker was truly saying. But, one thing was sure, it became the word of choice for certain individuals intent on wrecking the English Language.

If asked, how's the chow tonight? the answer was never good, so-so, or horrible. it was always co-pa-set-ic, with all the necessary head shaking which resembled someone stricken with St. Vidas dance.

Eventually, like all fads, it ran it's course and people started to, once again, speak in real English when asked a question deserving of a simple yes or no. However, it left in it's wake a lot of confused people. That's why today, people are always asking "What part of no, don't you understand". ........gfp
