( invented by and physically applied to Muhammad Ali ):

A) an adjective to describe 'gentle giants'

B) describes, a politically active ( but not a politician) people who have a particular sense of 'political sarcasm' and matching wit' when they discuss politics on an intellectual level

C) describes very few professional politicians who use the particular sarcasm identified above to not mince words when they ' say what they mean' and ' mean what they say'
While the phrase float like a butterfly, sting like a bee can be theoretically applied definition a), to Muhammad Ali, it can also be applied , definition b) , to not only Muhammad Ali, but also simple politically conscious people like myself . Definition c) can be applied not only to myself and Muhammad Ali ( to the extent that Muhammad Ali and I were never politicians) but should rarely epitomize, whereb it's deserved, professional politicians like Vladimir Putin who don't mince words when they speak, using definition b) instead to ' say what they mean' and ' mean what they mean'
