Groupon just has the best thesaurus →1 min read Published by Lee Reamsnyder Permalink
Hot on the heels of a little fracas in the Tumblrsphere about the value of a thesaurus, I offer up this little entry from coupon site Groupon. The entry for “hands” should tell you everything that you have to know.
hands = wrist-mitts, finger-docks, arm paddles, cheek slappers, open-faced knuckle sandwiches, Michigan silhouettes (only use in Midwest), turkey tracers/stencils, clapping utensils (good for events), knuckle wagons, 5-pronged pals, knuckle steaks, shake traps, high-five dispensers, nail farms, finger farms
Actually, their entire style guide (Update 2018 October 5: The original document is offline, but here’s some poorly-formatted screen captures) is worth a read if you’re looking for some ideas on how to break out of clichéd marketing-speak.
