Last week's question: After North Korean leader Kim Jong Un called President Trump a "dotard," Google saw an immediate spike in searches for that rarely-used word, which means "an old person, especially one who has become weak or senile." If Kim were to publish a collection of creative insults to use against rivals and enemies, what title could he give the book?
