Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor recently left the Internet in a tizzy with a bombastic word, a word that many didn't know existed- 'floccinaucinihilipilification'.
Netizens took the pronunciation of the 29-letter word, as a challenge while simultaneously creating memes around it.
However, what came as a delightful surprise to Tharoor was little kids taking the challenge and nailing it with extreme ease.
