Remember that courtroom scene in My Cousin Vinny?



Vinny: "Yaw Onna, deeze two yutes..."

Judge: "Uh...what was that?...These two what?"

Vinny (confused): "Deeze two yutes..."

Judge (just as confused): "What's a yute?"

telegenic

- well suited to the medium of television; especially: having an appearance and manner that are markedly attractive to television viewers

Examples:

(1) Hadley is quite telegenic.

(2) Sorry, Lawny.

All it needs is a little Photoshopping, Lawny! [jealous burn in progress]

BTW, I have my glass saw back from the shop, so Dreamtime Doggie will eventually come to life...

Agrestic 1. rural; rustic. 2. unpolished; uncouth.

The US was considered by her mother country to be largely agrestic well into the 19th century, and is still considered so by many in the UK to this day. Not entirely without reason.
