FOOLHA’PPY. adj.

foolhappy-adj

FOOLHA’PPY. adj. [fool and happy.] Lucky without contri-
vance or judgment.
As when a ship, that flies fair under sail,
An hidden rock escaped unawares,
That lay in wait her wreck for to bewail;
The mariner, yet half amazed, stares
At perils past, and yet in doubt ne dares
To joy at his foolhappy oversight. Fairy Queen, b.i.cant.6.
