so have i been using the word "droll" incorrectly my whole life? i always thought it meant "dry" (as in wit) or deadpan sarcastic.
but dictionary.com tells me: "droll stands lower on the scale, having reference to persons or things which excite laughter by their buffoonery or oddity. A laughable incident; a comical adventure; a droll story."
my definition is almost the opposite. help me, obi wan kenobi!
