Relic


Relic | epithet | A duplicitous person who can’t be trusted. Originally the name of a character in the CBC television program, The Beachcombers (aired 1972-1990). Played by actor Robert Clothier, Relic was a scheming, conniving shit-disturber and the arch-nemesis of protagonist Nick Adonidas (played by Bruno Gerussi). He was also a representative style icon who was way ahead of his time (toque at a jaunty angle, suspenders, mack jackets, etc.).

Usage: “My manager at work is a bit of a Relic. He keeps scheduling me to work brunch even though I told him I have yoga..”
