I was reading something yesterday and came across the unfamiliar word fol-de-rol (also spelled folderol). It means nonsense and was an older English version of saying "la, la, la" in songs. Since the refrain was just a filler, people used to use it to mean irrelevant or foolish. 

This is your word for the day. You're welcome.
