LIFFSOFTHEWEEK

The Daily Telegraph - Saturday - - Living -

Llantwit Ma­jor (n): An army of­fi­cer who, de­spite well de­served pro­mo­tion in the forces, is still quite un­able to or­gan­ise the tombola at the vil­lage fete. Shelfanger (n): any at­ro­phy­ing item re­moved from an el­derly par­ent’s fridge un­der the right of Selby (qv ‘Liffs of the­Week’ pas­sim). Thanks to Richard Kay and Alan Wise­man. Send your liffs – real place names for un­named feel­ings, sit­u­a­tions or ob­jects – to week­end@tele­graph.co.uk
