I am watching Season 2 of MadMen and the expression ‘far-fetched’ was used.
In the advertising world , we find very innovative and creative people. The drawback of working with creatives is that they sometime come up with far-fetched ideas.
Far-fetched (adj) means not likely, difficult to believe, brought from far away.
Fetch as a verb means to bring or get within reach by going like a dog fetches a frisbee.
- His ideas are always too far-fetched.
- Your excuses are far-fetched. I don’t believe you.
- She told me she eared 2 million per year. I think that is a little far-fetched.
- I think she is pushing the envelop.
- It seems like she is stretching things a bit.
- Improbabile, inverosimile, forzato, tirato per i capelli
