New Word Learned of the day

“Zeugma”

Zeugma is a word for when you make a verb do several functions at the same time (eg. “I left in a foul mood and a black taxi”).

Ooh, I like that. Both a word I didn’t know and a technique I’ve been failing to employ. As in “Neil Gaiman has created a posting topic and a monster.” Or something to that effect.
