This year introduced a new, risible entry to the cultural lexicon: “The Coachella Diet.”
His essay was considered so risible that few even bothered trying to argue with it.
The argument depends on a number of risible and obviously untrue assumptions.
1550s, "given to laughter," from Middle French risible (14c.) and directly from Late Latin risibilis "laughable, able to laugh," from Latin risus, past participle of ridere "to laugh." Meaning "capable of exciting laughter, comical" is from 1727.
