    I’ve also heard it is “lamblast.” Done by a sheep in wolf’s clothing, perhaps. Similar to the misuse of “penultimate” to mean “ultimate” is the misuse of “epicenter” to mean something like “dead center,” when it really means “above the center,” because the center of an earthquake lies below ground, so the point on the surface above that is the epicenter.

  2. Terry:

    We think the origin is from basting a lamb on a spit.
