etymology: derived from the same phrase used by teachers in lower schools whereupon a child has tardily entered his classroom ( n., late pass, v., latepass)
directed toward a person who has presented something (often a piece of information or writing, news article or website) as new and interesting, when it is, in fact, related to something old and already widely circulated
Although others were impressed when Katie showed off the all your base-themed thatched-reed basket she had made in her underwater basket weaving class, Reu could only reply, "Katie, get a late pass!"
