They *do* have a name!

One of the more pathetic things that amuse me, is giving overly specific compliments. Not nasty ones like telling the only girl in the room that she's the most attractive girl in the room (which I guess you could make sound humorous?), but saying someone is the best at something that they are in fact good at, but then saying out of a very small group of people.

It turns out, this is called an Overly Narrow Superlative!

Also, did you know this is my most informative non-FFXI-related post all week?
