like, whatever  
I just came across this bit of wisdom in Pepys's diary --

"And by the way in discourse [Dr. Thomas Fuller] tells me that the best way of beginning a sentence, if a man should be out and forget his last sentence (which he never was), that then his last refuge is to begin with an Utcunque."

The translation of that word is . . .  "whatever."   The more things change, the more, you know, they become.

There was once was a parson so numinous
His earthly excretions were luminous.
In the middle of the night
His outhouse glowed bright
With a fuel that was hardly bituminous.
