Eyepopping Words

Sunday, July 06, 2008 | | 0 comments »

I think it's important to make a list of great words. Sometimes you just need a good word. You never know when one of these words will pop into your mind and then the perfect opportunity to use it will present itself. Most of these words will be insults, so you should be able to use them often. You may even know some of them, so this post will be a refresher. Here's the list, including many of my favorites:

  • Flibbertigibbet: a chattering or flighty, light-headed person; a scatterbrain.
  • Monomania: an inordinate or obsessive zeal for or interest in a single thing, idea, subject, or the like.
  • Jumentous: smelling strongly like a beast of burden.
  • Jobbernowl: a stupid person; a blockhead.
  • Fop: a man who is excessively vain and concerned about his dress, appearance, and manners.
  • Milktoast: easily dominated; extremely mild; a pansy.
  • Bloviate: to speak pompously; to discourse at length in a pompous or boastful manner.
  • Droll: amusing in an odd way; whimsically humorous.
  • Vivify: to give life to; to enliven; brighten; sharpen.
  • Vilify: to speak ill of; defame; slander.
  • Draconian: rigorous; unusually severe or cruel; exceedingly harsh; very severe.
  • Jejune: without interest or significance; dull; insipid; juvenile; immature; lacking knowledge or experience; uninformed;
  • Hoopla: bustling excitement or activity; commotion; hullabaloo.

I've got tons of more words, but I think this list is enough for now. Too many awesome words in one sitting is eyepoppingly crazy. ("Eyepoppingly" isn't a real word, but "eyepopping" is, and is one of the greatest words of all time, especially when you imagine someone's eyes actually popping because they saw something so incredible).
