That would have been Tom Lehrer:

"While we're attacking frontally,
Watch Brink-ely and Hunt-ely,
Describing Contrapuntally
The cities we have lost,

No need for you
to miss a minute
of the agonizing Holocaust!

Good god, that's not roughing the kicker,  that's assault! 😀

Is that what it means?  I thought it was what happened when the Sandanistas held them to under ten yards on three tries.

All this talk of counterpunching and no mention of Sugar Ray Robinson?  For shame.

Thunderboy: As one who wasted a lot of time and money on a music degree, of course I know what it means. Using it outside of a discussion about music seems pretty thesaurus-y to me, though.

Every word is fungible if you're brave enough.

I knew what it meant, but honestly, I'd probably never use it.  I prefer to eschew obfuscation.

I like how illiterate, ultracrepidarian subby assumes I didn't know about a perfectly cromulent word like contrapuntal...perhaps you need to get off your steatopygous as a little more lucubration is required on your part subby...

CarnySaur: Oh, I'm sure some commenters will say they already know what contrapuntal means because they read books and nobody else does.
