Pronunciation: ə-blĭv'ē-as'

Sentence: "HE SAYS HE THINKS HE KNOWS YA! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" Glen shouted the punchline and roared with laughter, utterly convinced his joke had killed, as the silent group around him at the cocktail party began to dissipate. "He's such an obliviass," muttered Fran to Zoey as they made their way to the bar.

Etymology: 'obli,' var. of 'obla,' from Lennon and McCartney, normally associated with 'dee' or 'dah,' denoting a carefree attitute; 'via,' by way of; 'ass' (bef. 1000; ME asse, OE assa, prob. hypocoristic form based on OIr asan < L asinus; akin to Gk ónos ass), beast of burden.


nice twist - Jabberwocky, 2008-04-01: 14:38:00

I heard that Glen is not as big a obliviass as he used to be - he's on a diet! Good word & great etymology. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-04-01: 22:34:00

Pronunciation: ig/nor/rant

Sentence: It was April Fool's Day and Justin, the small company's sole male employee, was making more of an "ignoranus" of himself than usual.

She did, however, wonder if the Saran-wrap covering the toilet bowl in the men's washroom would ever be traced back to her.

Pronunciation: /FAHRS-feed/

Sentence: As a travelling PC Technician, Dominic often had a captive audience when he worked on people's home computers. Few people would walk away when he was working on their PC's, either because they were trying to learn or because they were afraid he'd do something to mess it up. So, while he was working, he would farcefeed them jokes. They sometimes laughed too, although it was usually a nervous kind of laugh. A lot of people didn't get his jokes, but still, a laugh was a laugh. Dominic wanted to be a standup comedian one day.

Etymology: Blend of: Farce - A ludicrous comedy; a mockery (from Old French, farcir "to stuff" as in 'a short comic sketch in between the acts of a play') + Forcefeed - to physically compel one to take food (from Latin, fortis "strong" & Old English, foda "to tend")


I've been farcefed a few times - Jabberwocky, 2008-04-01: 14:39:00

May the farce be with you, Tigger. - Nosila, 2008-04-01: 15:03:00

Pronunciation: sil-ee-ham-er

Pronunciation: JES-ter-Sh-muhk

Sentence: Bob, who was keen to impress the boss's daughter, fancied himself as a comedian. Sadly his jokes, which always had a yiddish flavour, were bad; in fact, they were worse than that, they were terrible. So terrible that at his looming others literally went scurrying out of the way, sometimes running into one another. "Good yontiff, pontiff," he would call to his Catholic compadres at Easter or Christmas. And coming upon the local rabbi, seated at the time, he golemically gurgled: "Did you hear about the Jewish art collector, who became a Christian? He exchanged his Rubens -for a Goya..!" So taken back was the poor man that he almost tipped over backwards off his chair. Finally there was agreement between friend and foe alike, that this schlemiel needed, figuratively, a "frosk in the pisk.' Calling him in for a chat, Roxie said, "You are not here today because we think your yiddish humour is funny. We think it's time for you to make a change." Bob paused, and let the gravity of the situation sink in. "Friends," he said, with a hint of a smile; yes, true, it's time for me to move to a deeper understanding of the art of comedy than I have ever known before. Suddenly, quick as a flash, and without warning, he came forth with, " Confucuis say: If at filst you don't succeed - mally the boss's daughter." Roxie was shocked as anyone, and all there began to speak amongst themselves. Cringing in the expectation of more jokes, Roxie exclaimed, "Perhaps, there just so much more to learn about him; what is he: a yold, a yekel or jestershmuck?"

Etymology: JESTER:clown, joker, comedian & SHMUCK -from Yiddish:dope, bore, jerk, bumbler. YONTIF: Holiday, celebration, festivity. GOLEM: fool, simpleton, graceless.GOY:Gentile. SCHMIEL:fool, social misfit. FROSK IN THE PRISK:slap in the face. YOLD, dolt. YEKEL:sucker.


Schmuck, a Yiddish word, has a range of meaning depending on context. In its most innocuous use, a schmuck is a person who does a stupid thing, in which case "dumb schmuck" is the appropriate expression. A schmuck's behavior ranges from pesky and inconsiderate, to obnoxious and manipulative. A schmuck's personality type ranges from jerk to bastard. Schmucky behavior also falls within a range of intentionality. Some schmucks carefully plan their bad behavior, some only a little, and some not at all. For example, the bastard may spend considerable time planning his bad deeds. In contrast, the dumb schmuck and the pesky behave badly without any forethought. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-04-01: 00:51:00

you're such a mensch, OB. - stache, 2008-04-01: 09:27:00

Thanks stache. I was wondering if anyone would get my joke... I was starting to think that I'm just a nilarious jestersmuck, or maybe a farcefeeding obliviass. ~ James
