    We have had the Steornish noun, the shaunsaid, since the early days, but now, with the long overdue demise of Steorn finally upon us, I reckon it is time to add a new verb to the lexicon: to shaun. (Yes, the lower case "s" is deliberate ...)

    To shaun is to bullshit in order to get something (money, investors, votes etc.) but to do so in such a grandiose and attention-seeking/grabbing way that you end up committed to holding farcical follow-up non-events (such as "launches", "announcements" and "demonstrations" etc.) that are cringe-inducingly humiliating and awful for everyone involved.

    Examples:
    1. Having shauned his way to The White House, Trumpty Dumpty is about to have a very great fall from that Mexican wall.
    2. Will Theresa May trigger article 50 or will she shaun?
    3. Rossi has been shauning for so long now, it is has become difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish his lies from his bullshit.
    4. I told them it would be ready for the meeting today and I genuinely believed that it would be, but I was really only shauning myself as well as them.

    Etc.

    Moletrap dialect for sure - as soon as I get to a proper keyboard.

    An appropriate time to repost this one also I reckon:

    Our Founder,
    Who art in Dublin,
    Hollow be thy claims.
    Thy investors? Dumb!
    They will be done
    Financially times seven.
    Give us this day our daily threads,
    And don't give any press passes,
    As we laugh at those who write lies we discuss,
    And lead us not into gas stations,
    But deliver science medieval.
    For thine is the time-splitting,
    Energy-creating glory,
    For never and never.
    Ah, meh.

    Excellent... mocks both Steorn AND religion.
  2.  
    Does shauning cause hairy palms... or blindness?
