Sometimes we here use expressions beyond the ken of Webster, or even  
Johnson. I had done something similar to Stefan a few days ago (I  
forget what, but it was a similar sequence of adjectives whose objects  
were a little vague under the circumstances). No grammatical flames  
from me; I could as easily have said, "It's just Stefan being Stefan  
again..." (and also no criticism of Stefan here, either; he's just  
programmed that way, I suspect).

It's also very gratifying when the expensive book-learnin' is borne  
out by the experience of someone who actually knows what they're  
talking about ;-).
