Commentary:

Starting our little series on words stolen from the website World Wide Words is tarradiddle! If you’ve never visited, the World Wide Words is not unlike these posts, but with far more information, and in my personal opinion, has a better collection of odd and strange words in some cases. Hence why we’re stealing some of their words! Tarradiddle is one of those highly amusing words to both read and say and I feel fits its meanings very well. I hope you enjoy it!
