Snorri Sturlason proposed the first circumlolcution, by describing shitty poetry as Eagle-shit.

Circumlolcution is a crucial form of poetic diction in the art of shitty emo poetry. The base of a circumlolcution is an old – or forced – meme, which is then lulzified by describing it in terms of any other more lulzy memes to which it relates. Therefore, longcat may be referred to by the genitive phrase “Bane of Tacgnol,” or its ancient poetic name of “Stretch-Puss”.
