The best way of enjoying a film is to know nothing at all about the actors. Except that they’re famous and good sports.
(David Mitchell, “Why didn’t Liam Neeson just stick to the script?”, The Guardian, 2-10-19)
I’m too lazy to investigate every single unfamiliar word I encounter, but after sliding over a subheading several times that said an actor “hung out with a cosh,” I finally had to look up “cosh” (then read the article): Merriam-Webster says, ‘(Chiefly British): a weighted weapon similar to a blackjack.’ Cosh closed.
