I was listening this podcast and heard/read the sentence below.
'A majority of the responses that you actually encounter, if you do encounter the public, the general public, are actually very encouraging. They're not shock,horror majority of the time, I can guarantee that. A lot of people say just 'good morning' and carry on...'
At the end one of the hosts explained the phrase.
'And when we say ‘shock, horror!’ we actually mean the opposite and mean something in not shocking or surprising – we’re being sarcastic, I guess.'
Also, from the first link attached:
shock, horror: said to mean something is not shocking or surprising
So there is a confusion here as depending on the definition given, the first expression (A majority of the responses...) should be 'They're shock, horror...' rather than 'They're not shock,horror...' as the speaker expresses that these neighbours and all these people who see another person naked just says 'hello' and carry on like it's normal.
I checked the definition on Cambridge Dictionary and it is about 'pretending.' One can mean the opposite or not when he/she is pretending. So this definition doubled my confusion.
What does 'shock,horror' mean?
