- adj. Afflicted with halitosis.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
And parties sometimes seem like gratuitous, halitotic congregations of bores and stiffs, underminers and the "overrefreshed."
I can’t say that I sympathize much with Jonathan Jones’s suggestion that the world needs more critics — in part because of the self-importance oozing from his smug pores, the cocky wink and triumphant knuckle-to-chin inviting even the most pacific souls to lacerate the man’s halitotic face with an X-Acto rather than raise a hearty toast in commiseration.
Just don’t make a huge production out of it (the loud “Ladies first” exclamation is unnecessary, annoying and reminds us of a halitotic old schoolmaster).
