Default Can you play a taradiddle?

My dictionary app displays a "word of the day" when you open it up.

Yesterday's word of the day was "taradiddle". I initially thought it was a misspelled word, but turns out it means either a petty lie or pretentious nonsense.

I'm willing to bet some people have mistaken my paradiddles for taradiddles.

This thread is likely as tenuously related to music as can be, so I won't be surprised if it gets locked.

Still, I thought it was amusing. Wondering if some of you do, as well.

Yes, as Tara is my wife's name!

A terabyte is 1000 gigs. So the sticking would be 998 singles followed by RR?

I dunno, seems like the right definition for my paradiddles.

To me it sounds like doing paradiddles in tar to strengthen the upstroke.
