  2. Wonderful! Where are these from? I recognize at least a couple from Mrs. Byrne’s Dictionary of Unusual, Obscure, and Preposterous Words.

  3. Hum, I have used a few of these words.How about QUANKED,to be overpowered by fatigue.Old Scots, I believe.

  4. Sufferring from dysania and feeling frobly-mobly I am grefling today. I’ll perendinate my chores. No mater what you may think I am not philogrobolized!

  5. There are times I am zwoddered after a bad night, and then stravage about, elflocked and frobly-mobly, fudgeling and looking to groke

  6. Callipygian turns up in a song (ca. 1961) about Vikki Dougan, a model and actress who became famous for wearing gowns that were extremely low-cut in back. The Limeliters sang, “Vikki, turn your back on me,” and praised her “callipygian cleft.”

  7. Cacapygian is a good word, very descriptive.

    Steatopygian would be another excellent word and that is one you can use every day

  8. Callipygian (callypigos) is actually a greek word: cally=good and pigos = butt. Same goes for cacoethes caco-ethes = bad ethics- morals.

  9. We live with a kakistocracy led by a ultracrepidarian snollygoster who spends as much time every day fudgelling as he can while his closest followers of grufeling in the flag grumbletonians perendinate the day away.

  10. Is a bunch of kids not living with their own families, pretending to be corrupt politicians a foster imposter snollygoster roster?

    Or is that just twaddle from too much twa(dd)ttling?
