Piggybacking on the raging success of our coining of the term TYGA moment, we here at PavCo Multimedia Synergistics are pleased to unleash upon present to you the latest in our increasingly popular “Moment” line: The ONYD© Moment.
(pronounced “Oh-need”, in tribute to the clueless guy in the movie That Thing You Do, who pronounces the band’s name, Oneders (“One-ders”) as “Oneeders”. No, it has nothing to do with the meaning of the acronym, but it’s our word and we can pronounce it as we see fit.)

The ONYD moment is one in which a speaker (as with the TYGA moment, usually a politican or some sort of bureaucratic functionary) says something that causes the listener to jerk their head up and say “Oh no you dih-int!”

Considerate as he always is for the needs of the common man, Vice President Cheney provided us this week with a particularly quintessential ONYD moment, in an interview with ABC news. On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq war, Cheney was asserting that we were making measurable strides in Iraq. The interviewer asked the Vice President, arguably the second most powerful elected official in the country, how he responded to the fact that 70% of the American people did not think the war in Iraq had been worth it. Cheney’s response?

He said “So?” and chuckled.
