Confused malcontents swilling Chardonnay while awaiting the Zombie Apocalypse.
As Peter Ustinov once said in an interview:
"That is to say, in not so many words, No."
As a friend and co-worker once said:
"No," he explained.
Or as Mike from The Young Ones once said:
"I don't want to say anything negative, but no."
If former vice president Dan Quayle were still around, he would say that you misspelled "potatoe."
But then he also criticized the TV show "Murphy Brown" because the main character had a baby out of wedlock. Not Candice Bergen, who played Murphy, but the fictional character in the story. Quayle didn't get re-elected, but that was more on his boss, George H.W. Bush, than it was on Quayle. (I read that a woman was publishing a newsletter just containing Quayle's gaffs that she sold to journalists, and she was making $150,000 a year from her newsletter.)
