The Funniest Words in the English Language—And How to Use Them…
THESE FANTY-SHEENY WORDS WILL BUMFUZZLE ALL YOUR FRIENDS!
If you tweet something divisive the generates a lot of conversation, you might say
that you started a bit of a brouhaha. That’s a way better word for it than “commotion” or “uproar.”
Example: “Her speech started a brouhaha on all the 24-hour news channels.”
You’ve seen them in movies and on local commercials: lawyers who are willing to
do anything to score a client or get a win. In other words, pettifoggers.
Example: “The prosecution’s pettifogger called some pretty shady witnesses.”
Hammered. Wrecked. Drunk. Forget all those boring words for being intoxicated—”sozzled”
makes it sound almost sophisticated.
Example: “Don’t let him order another drink, he’s already sozzled.”
If you enjoy warmed, spiced wine, you can get sozzled on wassail.
Okay, so maybe this one only comes up in conversation if you’re a weaver, but it’s still
a funny word. According to Merriam-Webster, an inkle is “a colored linen tape or braid
woven on a very narrow loom and used for trimming.”
Example: “My inkle won’t stay in place!”
Have a lot of siblings? Your parents probably mollycoddle the youngest, meaning that
they baby and indulge them, no matter what they do.
Example: “Stop mollycoddling her, she’s a grown woman!”
If you travel to Scotland (or go to a Scottish pride event), you’ll almost certainly
hear someone skirl, i.e. play the bagpipes.
Example: “Let’s get closer, the bagpipers are about to start skirling.”
A wild night out could land you in the hoosegow for breaking the law. It’s just a funny word for jail!
Try to do anything with a government agency and it’ll be a lot of rigmarole. That can
either mean a lot of circular discussion or just a generally tedious ordeal.
Example: “Let’s get the rigmarole of the paperwork taken care of.”
Despite the reputation of the animal within this word, impignorate actually means to
pawn off or mortgage something in your possession.
Example: “I’m going to impignorate this watch for some extra cash.”
That’s my Story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT THURSDAY! people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

“A growing number of people are going to e-sport arenas to watch other
people play video games. It combines the thrill of going to a live sporting
event with the thrill of having an unemployed roommate.” -Jimmy Fallon
“Papa John’s has started selling extra-large jugs of its signature garlic sauce.
Each jug of garlic sauce is 8 pounds and costs $20. But Papa John’s says it’s a
lifetime supply. Because you’re not expected to survive long enough
to need a second jug.” -James Corden
“Scientists claim to have succeeded transplanting a memory from the brain of
one sea snail and implanting it into another. Or, more likely, all snails
live pretty similar lives.” -Seth Meyers
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A seven-year-old boy is sitting at the dinner table with his parents. Suddenly he announces,
“Me and Janie next door are gonna get married!”
“Oh?” says the mother, amused. “And how old is Janie?”
“Six,” replies the boy.
“Well,” says the father, “what are you going to do for money?”
“I get 5 dollars a week allowance,” says the son, “and Janie gets 2. We figured that if we put them together, we’ll be okay.”
“I see,” says the father. “But what are you going to do if you have any children?”
“Well,” says the boy, “so far we’ve been lucky.” 😳
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Um, we’re changing my birthday party to this Saturday.”
Answer: Odd Girl Out!
Stacey said this to Vanessa in the movie, ‘Odd Girl Out’. She said it because Vanessa did not rat her out to the principal. But it turned out, she did not change her party to that Saturday and Vanessa felt awful and tried to kill herself by taking an overdose. This movie was about a girl named Vanessa. She had perfect grades, good friends, and a friendly crush named Tony. But when she realized that her best friend, Stacey, liked Tony also, everything went downhill. She tried to get them together, but Nicky thought that she flirted with him and she turned all the other girls against her. Everyone made fun of her, which eventually got to Vanessa, who did horrible things to herself. She cut her hair and even worse, she tried to kill herself, and she did not know who her friends were anymore.
