Word of the day

Today's word is subprime, which means risky, ill-advised. So far it is used only to refer to the US property market where subprime loans are those which involve a higher level of risk. However, sitting here with a very subprime cup of coffee, I predict that it will very soon be used in a wide range of other contexts too, and I plan to be the first.
