kayballard commented on the word cliche meme expanded shorthand
A somewhat useful phrase that was coined by witty Grant McDonald @chichiri to describe and explain his use of the phrase "to be honest."
Some might question Grant's motive for creating the phrase. Some might posit that he did so merely to change the subject when when his charming collaborator on the Twitter Follow Friday Manifesto, Kay Ballard, @kayballard, cried out in surprise and horror when he used it. Until that very moment, she had assumed he was being honest at all times.
