Congressman Shashi Tharoor, who is known for his eloquent English, routinely unleashes word bombs on Twitter that very few people understand. His use of long and exotic English words often leads amused social media users to Google to find their meaning. This morning he posted a witty tweet full of adjectives, which is quickly going viral.
On Wednesday, the MP shared a photo showing the crash of a truck loaded with thousands of copies of Roget’s Thesaurus. The image also contains lengthy text describing the witnesses’ reaction after witnessing the unfortunate crash. The post’s caption read, “A smile to brighten the morning!”

The text reads as follows: “A truck loaded with thousands of copies of ROGET’S THESAURUS crashed yesterday and lost its entire load. Witnesses were stunned, shocked, stunned, stunned, stunned, confused, shocked, rattled, paralyzed, dazed, bewildered, confused , surprised, awed and stunned, stunned, stunned, astonished, astonished, confused, astonished, overwhelmed, horrified, stunned, speechless, bewildered, bewildered, stunned, disturbed, disturbed and breathtaking.”
As usual, the tweet has amused social media users, with many saying they’ve had enough adjectives for the day, while some poking fun at Mr Tharoor and noting that he might know even more synonyms.
One user wrote, “Well, that’s just my vocabulary on the go.”
Well, that’s just my vocabulary on the road.

A second jokingly said, “Maybe we should add a new word to the dictionary that means and replaces all those words, and just say, ‘Witnesses were Tharoored.’
Maybe we should add a new word to the dictionary that means and replaces all those words, and just say, “Witnesses were found.”

Yet another wrote, “Ha ha, they don’t know our Tharoor saab can add a few more words and more smiles.”
A fourth decided to answer Mr. Tharoor in the same witty way. He noted: “The witnesses witnessed the scattering and wondered if the shipment was falling apart or scattered or scattered or broken up or lying around or being tossed around or being randomly broken up.” A fifth said: “I’m sure that you know more. synonyms they missed,” while another wrote, “Now we’re out of words.”
Now we run out of words. https://t.co/zU37SGPZFO
