chocolate-box(CHO-kuh-lit boks, CHOK-lit -)
adjective: Having a romanticized beautiful image; stereotypically pretty.
[From the kind of pictures often seen on boxes of chocolate.]
"But to accept that is merely to endorse a patronising, chocolate-box
image of the country -- to see it all as pretty lanes, thatched
cottages and rosy-cheeked lasses milking cows -- and to turn a blind
eye to the reality of rural life today."
They have a right to censure, that have a heart to help: The rest is cruelty, not justice. -William Penn, Quaker, founder of Pennsylvania (1644-1718)
