Far-fetched

The term far-fetched has been in use in its current sense since the 1600s. It is a compound word, which is a word formed by joining two words together in order to form a new word. We will examine the definition of the expression far-fetched, where it came from and some examples of its use in sentences.

Far-fetched describes something that is unlikely, something outside the realm of possibility, something that stretches belief. Something that is far-fetched is usually considered to be an enormous exaggeration, a tall tale, or an outright lie. Far-fetched was first used in the latter 1500s to mean something that is brought from a faraway place. Note that the word far-fetched is properly rendered with a hyphen, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, although it is sometimes seen as two words, as in far fetched, or as one word, as in farfetched.

    BREAKING: MAN NABBED WITH 2000 PVCs AT IYEKOGBA, OREDO WARD 2..

    Less than 48 hours to the rescheduled general elections set to hold on February 23rd 2019, a man with two thousand permanent voters cards in his possession have been nabbed by security agencies today at Iyekogba axis in Oredo local government area of Edo state.

    The middle aged man identified as Mr. Edwin Edosomwan was apprehended by security agencies at Iyekogba while he attempted to purchase some PVCs from some residents within the locality. When quizzed by reporters, Mr Edosomwan allegedly claimed to be a member of the 'OPERATION SHOW YOUR RESULT' team which is the mobilization support group for the candidate of the PDP for Oredo federal constituency, Hon. Omoregie Ogbeide Ihama and said he was mandated to get as many PVCs of eligible voters within Oredo federal constituency with the aim of buying over their votes.

    He went further to state that he bought the PVCs for as low as 5000 naira per PVC stressing that he and members of his campaign group have been instructed to deliver their units at all costs hence his desperation to purchase the PVCs before the election day..

    As at the time of filing in this report, Mr. Edosomwan had been taken away by the law enforcement agencies for further interrogation.
