Seriousness and silliness in the same sentence can seem slightly strange, but some can seem seriously silly and others sillily serious at the same time. Still, sillily may seem like a silly word, strangely, and certainly it is and isnโ€™t in equal measure. Sillily is a word, a silly word, silly sounding, silly looking and silly meaning (in a senseless manner), certainly succinctly suitable for a strange but serious post of seventy seven words on silliness.

    1. Like Hey, Diane… Hi!
      Sillily is a silly word to read once as it is anyway! It doesn’t even roll of the tongue properly.
      Far out, Diane… I shall be round your pad as soon as the clicky tips get their groove on!
