Imagine someone is so silly or behaves so stupidly or often says so foolish stuff that makes him sound ridiculous.
I wonder how can one mention such a person?
I know the term "laughing stock" that according to the dictionary definition means:
A person who is the subject of mockery after a blunder.
- If I mess up this speech, I'll be the laughing stock of the school!
Would it make sense to tell a close friend smilingly:
- (1) He's our laughing stock. [Meaning: someone who we laugh at in our company - like an inside joke]
- (2) This matter has become the laughing stock for all. [Meaning: something that everyone finds it silly and hilarious that whenever thinks about it.]
If no, then how shall I refer to them?
