More Funny Words

Perhaps because it’s summertime so I am bored or perhaps because I am finding some more time to read; whatever the reason, I have words on my mind. So I have decided to release a second edition of Funny Words That I Love….hope there are some here you enjoy as well, or maybe you’ve never heard before and you can start using them too!

Impervious -incapable of being influenced, persuaded, or affected. That’s right, when they are fighting, my children are “impervious” to the sound of my voice shouting at them to stop!

Lascivious – inclined to lustfulness; wanton; lewd. It sounds so bad, perhaps people would be less inclined to behave Lasciviouosly if we used that word more often.

Chortle – to chuckle gleefully. You can almost envision the laughing person actually snorting from the pure glee.

Quixotic – extravagantly chivalrous or romantic; visionary, impractical, or impracticable. Visions of Don Quixote dancing in my head!

Guffaw – to laugh loudly and boisterously. This word just makes me want to burst out laughing just so I can use it, why don’t we use “guffaw” any more??

Cacophony -a discordant and meaningless mixture of sounds:  eg. “the cacophony produced by city traffic at midday.” I like using this word, it sounds so much more dramatic than “lots of noise”

Superfluous – being more than is sufficient or required; excessive. As in, any more “letter u’s” in this word would simply be “superfluous”.

Eviscerate – to remove the entrails from; Yep, exactly what it sounds like!

Obstreperous -resisting control or restraint in a difficult manner; unruly, boisterous, clamorous, as in opstreperous children. I happen to be an expert in dealing with obstreperous behaviour.

Steatopygia – extreme accumulation of fat on and about the buttocks, esp. of women. Honestly, this is a real condition…of course I don’t know what it looks like or anything, you’ll have to look it up.

Loquacious – talking or tending to talk too much or freely; talkative. I have no idea what THIS word means. Really.
