Fun with words

In a code-switching conversation with a Francophone, I used the English word "frumpy." My interlocutor wasn't familiar with the word, and I couldn't explain it well, so I reached for my handy Collins-Robert. One of the options it gave was mal fagotée.

Ergo, if you are frumpy, it's because you haven't been Queer-Eyed.
