eschew obfuscation

Yesterday, on the way home, i saw a minivan completely covered in weird bumper stickers. It was then spray-painted on top of the stickers. I thought one in particular was good for my word (or words) of the week. It said, "Eschew obfuscation." So I consulted the oh-so-handy Wiktionary (just like Wikipedia but a dictionary) to give you all the correct info...

eschew--To avoid; to shun. The word eschew usually refers to ideas or concepts rather than physical objects.

obfuscation--The concept of concealing the meaning of communication by making it more confusing and harder to interpret.

Now you know the rest of the story. Or do you?
