Word of the Day 06/09/18 Truthiness

Truthiness (noun)
truthiness [troo-thee-nis]


noun
1. the quality of seeming to be true according to one's intuition, opinion, or perception without regard to logic, factual evidence, or the like: the growing trend of truthiness as opposed to truth. (I wonder if this could also be considered alternative facts?)
2. Rare. truthfulness or faithfulness.

Origin: 1824 for def 2; 2005 for def 1 (coined by Stephen Colbert (1964– ), U.S. comedian and TV host); truth + -y + -ness

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