Today’s “Tid-Bit”: (to be) “Clear-Cut“(as in: a decision / an answer / some information) is an idiomaticPhrasal-Adjective which is used to describe some piece of information which is very “clear” / simple / decisive / easy to comprehend / etc. – without the possibility for the information to be mis-construed or *mal-comprehended in any way.
(the term“mal-comprehended” is a much truer term for what many people comprehend as the verb(to) understand… This is a term which I no longer use. There will be a blog post about this very soon… [as of July, 2016 -ed.])
“He made a very clear-cut decision.”
“When George made the mistake of asking The Soup Nazi for a piece of free bread to go with his soup – not only was He refused the bread but – The Soup Nazi made the clear-cut decision to refuse George ANY kind of service at all.”
Meaning: The decision was clear, comprehensible, and could not be mis-construed in any way
“Well, that information seems pretty clear-cut.”
Meaning: The information was presented in a way that can be comprehended by just about anyone who can read and knows His or Her own name.

The termClear Cut can also be a verb with a very different meaning, and refers to the mass-murder and destruction of those wonderful oxygen-giving friends of ours who have been systematically targeted for annihilation by – not only idiotic red-necks in American who consider themselves to be “wilderness men” but are just idiot who cause destruction wherever they go – but also corporate business executives who are only concerned with providing the world with delicious hamburgers and tasty french-fries… (by Clear-Cutting the Rain-Forests of south American to raise cows which will tun into your chemically-delicious MacDonald’s hamburgers.)
“Oh look! There are still some trees left! So, I guess they didn’t actually Clear-Cut it after-all.”
And Stop Clear-Cutting My Friends!!!
…or I’ll make the clear-cut decision to send Hillary Clinton After you!!!
(I’m kidding… I wouldn’t even do that to people who clear-cut forests… And I fʌking hate people who clear-cut forests)
