Word of the Day 05/16/18 Panchreston

Panchreston (noun)
panchreston [pan-kres-tuh n]

1. a proposed explanation intended to address a complex problem by trying to account for all possible contingencies but typically proving to be too broadly conceived and therefore oversimplified to be of any practical use.

Origin: 1625-35; < Greek pánchrēston, neuter of pánchrēstos good for everything, equivalent to pan- pan- + chrēs-, verbid stem of chrâsthai to be useful + -tos verbal adjective suffix

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
