look up any word, like thot:
 
1.
noun
1. Character in Joss Whedon's Firefly.
2. The act of declining a proposition, delivering an insult, or placating an adversary with utmost poise, in a manner which allows the other party to either hear what they want to hear, or take the truth in the gentlest manner possible.
*A friend walks in wearing a truly horrifying red jumper*
'What do you think? I bought it in the sale...!'
'I like red. Red is a lovely, warm colour.'

'Would you like to come up for coffee?'
'That's a very sweet thing for you to offer...'
'That's not a "yes".'
'It's not a "no", either...'

'How about we meet up again, some time?'
'Some time, definitely.' (very slight emphasis on 'some')

'Way to pull an Inara, back there! That guy couldn't tell if you were insulting him, or coming on to him. I don't think he'll be bothering us again, soon... until he works it out, at least.'

the only useless boring character in joss whedon's otherwise brillant, original, hiliraious and cancelled tv show firefly. She's the reason
guy1: You wanna watch firefly?
guy2: What's that?
guy1: the best show ever, but it got cancelled because of this stupid whore Inara who couldn't act...but we got the awesome dvd so we can just fast forward through her shit bits.
