    Post hostess with the mostess

    What does "hostess with the mostess"?
    I've just read it in a book, and it was between quotation marks.

    Thanks :)

    Re: hostess with the mostess

    It should have been "hostess with the mostest."

    "Mostest" is a made-up word, emphasizing most -- the most "most" -- a lot of everything.

    Thanks Barb.
    So, what does it mean? Like the most hospitable one?

    Thanks

    It's just a complimentary thing to say - She's gracious and welcoming and has a nice home and makes good food and so on. You enjoy going to parties at the home of the hostess with the mostest.
