Word of the Day: Deadpan

This is one of those often-used words that we think we know what it means. I think maybe Inigo Montoya disapproves when we use it too much.

 

deadpan“The deadpan delivery did nothing to soften the blow of the bad news.”

Deadpan – adjective

1) showing no feeling or emotion
