in my personal cage match between sanguine and bossanova, bossanova won.
naughty or knickers
Gone off 'gob·smacked' then?'Squelch' is good, but my personal favourite is 'lunch'.
That's funny 'cause "Crabby Naughty Knickers" was my Gentlemen's Club name.How about marplot(a meddler whose interference jeopardizes the success of an undertaking) Marplot is a good word. Marplot is a bad friend.
Today I'm going for "higler". I.e., one who higgles.
Very proud indeed. I'd like to thank the academy and all the little words which made this possible: shrub, thump,nubbin, gulp, jejune, and so many, many others. I hope you know what's in my heart today...
Lambast is another one for the battle royale. let's hear it folks. i know it's carnival, but...
Ooh, "jejune"! I nominate "jejune". (Wow, Elizabeth, are you some sort of super-word-selecting-robot? 'Fess up.) I (and some other like-minded cohorts) were briefly obsessed with it a while back.
blurb, nozzle, frump, galoot, dangle, miasma, benign, fulcrum, floozy, smudge, jowl, ampersand, mellifluous, kettle, drab, snicker, crepuscule, harangue, stubble, crag, grumble, stupendous.I'm going with stupendous, just because I can't use it without cracking myself up.
I know I didn't follow the rules, but there are just too many great words.
taint.and you know why. O-liv-eeeeeeeeeeeee-ay.
My family was obsessed with "jejune" for a while, when my younger son was learning opposites. Older son kept finding ever more obscure words and thought he had us stumped with "sophisticated." We talked around the dinner table and settled on "jejune" as our response. Have no idea what younger son's kindergarten teacher thought of the five-year-old announcing at circle time, "The opposite of sophisticated is jejune."
Can we use proper names? I nominate "Garth". Is that really Garth up there?
On the one hand, I want to share. On the other hand, I like keeping it to myself. Sharing wins out: delicious, for its little known onomono-whatever properties.
Awordzawordzaword, proper or other wise. Nomination accepted.
well. if a word's a word, I nominate "slimbolala." I mean, c'mon.
Clause 37a (rev. 2): Names of contest organizers are ineligible for competition.(We have rules now.)
