Blackadder Dictionary – C is for Contrafibularity.

By August 3, 2016September 19th, 2019Bookshops, Inspired by Literature, Video

Here at For Reading Addicts we all love a good giggle, and if that giggle has a literary bent, then all the better. In this sketch from Blackadder, Dr Johnson arrives at the palace to present his life’s work to the Prince; the first ever English Dictionary.

His dictionary contains every single known word in the English language or does it? Blackadder seems to think Dr Johnson has missed a few extremely important examples.

House looks a little different in this Blackadder Dictionary sketch doesn’t he?
