Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

As I recall, some here are Douglas Adams fans.

From WordADay:




1. Something showy but worthless.
2. Nonsense or rubbish.
3. Deceit; fraud; trickery.


From French tromper (to deceive). Earliest documented use: 1481.


“The room was crowded with a chilly miscellany of knick-knacks and ornaments, gewgaws, and trumpery of every kind.”
Leo Bruce; Case for Three Detectives; Academy Chicago; 1980.

“History, made up as it is of so much trumpery, treachery, and tyranny, needs deeds of valor, of sacrifice, and of heroism if it is to be palatable.”
The Medal of Honor: A History of Service Above and Beyond; Zenith Press; 2014.
