n.— «This inverted snobbery about boarding schools is, to quote Jennings, “such spivvish, supersonic muck that’s so ghastly it’s ozard.” Non-fans will have to be reminded of the definition of ozard, as given by Atkinson, Jennings’s ponderous fellow new boy. “You’ve heard of the Wizard of Oz, of course. Well, obviously, the opposite of wizard is ozard, isn’t it? Everything ghastly is ozard.”» —“Jennings shone a light on the (junior) human condition” by Harry Mount Telegraph (U.K.) June 30, 2004.
