Move Over Doofus and Wake Up Moron – The New Age of Name Calling is Here

Fewer and Fewer Pencils Are Being Broken and This is NOT Good.

I am damn sorry to say this but cussing is getting boring.

There are just too many folks swearing and they have ruined it for those of us whom saved up the majority of our cursing for later in life only to find foul language so overused that it barely raises an eyebrow today.

Freeking Bunkoiled Fratzoolas!

You and I both know that when folks run out of cool sounding names to call each other, they automatically reach for sticks and stones and those tools make for a lot more clean up than ricocheting rhetoric.

Fortunately, someone is on the job of lining up more laymen linguistic lingo and a few of these new confabulations sound to me as if they have the makings of Kussword Kings.

As you are undoubtedly aware, dictionaries are accepting new words like doofus constantly and I have little doubt you will be able to vividly imagine some of the more poignant colloquies which led to the evolution of these new adages.

Word Allogee 101

Okay, lets start with some words from The Oxford Dictionary and a new and accurate expression to describe politicians:

bahookie (noun) Scottish – a person’s buttocks – origin 1930s: prob. a blend of behind and hough + ie.

blowback (noun) chiefly U.S. – the unintended adverse results of a political action or situation.

And from the Merriam-Webster Open Online Dictionary

wibble (verb) : when one’s chin shakes as they start to cry

smushables (noun) : the groceries that must be packed at the top of the bag or separately to avoid being mangled by the time you get home

Bird, Bird, Bird: Bird is a Word

Got The Right Stuff  To Deliver Your Message?

I am certain you will agree that some of the words above define our current situation perfectly and these are but a few of the new noises we are making to chronicle this curious life we enjoy.

Perhaps you have invented a word which we could employ to either vent our frustrations more effectively or maybe better describe the doofuses we sometimes resemble.

If so, I wish you would get the hail off your porcine posterior and send it to me!

Thank you, friend.
