Sex it up, daddio

Ever since the UK WMD dossier “sexing up” scandal and the death of David Kelly and subsequent inquiry, this expression and variations have popped up around the place. I know people who detest its use, but that’s the way language develops sometimes. Today I referred to a particular issue as not being sexy enough for the media. I know it’s not the true meaning of the word, but I was in a rush to send an email, and at least I know people will know what I’m talking about.

You are forgiven Daniel. Since you were in a rush.

Besides, I may well do a 180 degree turn on the issue and start using sexy aaaaalllll the time. You know, sexy porridge for breakfast, followed by a walk to the sexy milkbar, reading the newly-coloured sexier sports section of the Age and so on. Bring it on, sure.
