One of my favorite Twitter accounts is Adam Sharp (@AdamCSharp), who tweets lists of forgotten English phrases and idioms from different languages. He never tweeted this particular list, but he might have, if he was feeling a bit extra.

Antiquated phrases for describing someone as "sharp":

8. Guileless hearts
7. Tapioca cat usurper
6. Badass world traveler
5. Crisp fear
4. Toadstool threat
3. Max Legendary
2. Janet Tale-teller
1. Smooth fornicator
