- adj. comparative form of shrimpy: more shrimpy
Sorry, no etymologies found.
But this doesn't necessarily mean that megabanks are better poised to weather the credit crisis than their shrimpier brethren.
Medium or large are fine for a shrimp boil, saute or stir-fry; pricier jumbos are best for grilling because they won't cook as quickly as, well, shrimpier shrimp.
Taking into account attitudes like that of the guy on What Not to Wear, maybe they'd tone it down (or even reverse the exaggerations) for the shrimpier sizes?
