Self-antonyms (19 Jun 2006 at 17:27)
While looking for an antonym for "cut the mustard" (any suggestions?) I found this amusing list of words with two antonymic meanings. (Example: "fast" means both "rapid" and "unmoving".)

"No entry found for thin the herd.

Did you mean thin the herd?"

I nominate "missed the mark," "struck out,"..."missed the field goal,"

or for a completely different focus,




"relished her looks".


Then again there's always, "didn't cut the mustard."

Well, I actually needed something more like an adjective, so I went with "minor league." Thank you for the suggestions!
