New Addition to the Travel Lexicon: ‘Clark’
Travel Blog • Michael Yessis • 09.11.09 | 1:53 PM ET
It’s derived from the name Clark Griswold, Chevy Chase’s character in Vacation. In recent usage it has two meanings:
1) To World Hum contributor Matt Villano, to Clark is “to overly plan an adventure in an attempt to make sure everyone will have a great time, only to see the plans backfire, causing disastrous results.”
2) To Tony Hawk, to do a Clark Griswold is to practice “efficiency in sightseeing.”
We support both uses.
