WELCOME to FRIDAY MAY 20, 2022
The Funniest Words in the English Language—And How to Use Them…
Would You Believe PART III….
If you know someone who’s rather lazy and fails to show any sort of enthusiasm or ambition,
then they’re lackadaisical. It’s probably one of the funniest words because of all those syllables.
Example: “My coworker never gets his work done because he’s lackadaisical.”
Snickersnee is certainly a funny word, but the item behind its meaning is no joke. The term
refers to a large (and obviously super sharp) knife.
Example: “That’s not a snickersnee. This is a snickersnee.”
Some people are unreliable and don’t seem to be bothered by their own silly vibe. And while
we generally accept that they’re the flighty ones among us, you could also call
that certain someone a flibbertigibbet.
Example: “My flibbertigibbet friend failed to show up again.”
If you like the finer things in life—and to show them off—then you appreciate anything
that’s fanty-sheeny, which is a word that can be used for someone or
something that’s fancy or even ostentatious.
Example: “Her house was filled with fanty-sheeny furniture.”
If something is askew, awry, or lined up in a way that’s not totally straight, such as
diagonally—basically, slightly off-center or not quite right—then it’s not just
annoying, you could say it’s cattywampus.
Example: “The books on the desk are all cattywampus.”
If you know that “woe” is a word for sadness, then it might seem like woebegone is a term
for wanting sadness to go away. But since “begone” is actually an old word for being within
something, it turns out that woebegone is actually one of the funniest words for being in a sad state.
Example: “He was left woebegone, but hopeful.”
It may seem like pretentious nonsense to use as silly of a word as taradiddle to describe,
well, pretentious nonsense, but it would certainly suitable since that’s exactly what taradiddle means.
Example: “His stories are more taradiddle than truth.”
The next time you’re thinking about getting a new pet, perhaps you’ll consider a Maltipoo, which
is a cross-breed originating from a Maltese terrier and a miniature or toy poodle. Otherwise, you
could also consider a Puggle (a pug and beagle mix) or a Dorgi (a dachshund and corgi cross).
Example: “I just adopted the cutest Maltipoo puppy.”
Cartoon character Elmer Fudd was famous for calling Bugs Bunny a “wascally wabbit,” which we
assumed was because of his particular way of speaking. But perhaps he was actually using the
word wabbit, which means weary or exhausted.
Example: “You wabbit rabbit.”
When your insides make a little noise, you can accurately call that borborygmus. That’s the word
for the noisy rumbling and gurgling that comes from your midsection. It’s caused by
fluids or gas moving in your intestines.
Example: “Can you hear my belly borborygmus?”
That’s my Story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT MONDAY! people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

“Starbucks has announced that its bathrooms will now be open to anyone who walks in,
regardless of whether they buy anything. Hold on, so they’re saying, this whole time
Starbucks hasn’t been a public bathroom? I didn’t even know.” -James Corden
“Employees at a Domino’s Pizza saved a customer’s life by checking on him after they didn’t
hear from him, because he’s ordered a pizza every day for 10 years. No word on what was
wrong with him, but I’m guessing it had something to do with
ordering a pizza every day for 10 years.” -Jimmy Fallon
“A federal judge ruled yesterday that California’s version of the death penalty is unconstitutional.
Apparently, the difference is California’s version has avocado on it.” -Seth Meyers
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
My wife asked me to buy ORGANIC vegetables from the market. I went and
looked around and couldn’t find any. So I grabbed an old, tired looking employee
and said, “These vegetables are for my wife. Have they been sprayed with any poisonous chemicals?”
The produce guy looked at me and said, “No, sir, you’ll have to do that yourself.” 😳
Fridays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Mr. McKittrick, after very careful consideration, sir, I’ve come to the conclusion that your new defense system sucks.”

Monday’s Quizzler is…….
I have been called a savage, a chief and oft times a leader.
Some have called me the embodiment of courage, although to a Crook I did surrender.
Where I was born, there were no enclosures.
In the end, to bring me down, it took 5000 soldiers.
As the “terror of the country”, I had a reputation of cruelty and cunning.
My tactics consisted of hitting and then running.
Many movies and stories of me were made.
The memories of me, the most famous of my people, will never fade.
People have spoken ill of me so many times it would give your throat a lump.
Yet sometimes, my name is the last word said when people make a big jump.
Now it’s time to give it a try.
Do you know my name; who am I?
