Pronunciation: sten-CHUTZ-pa

Sentence: Bob was a bit of a nidork, blithely unaware of the effect his dyspongnosis had on others. Often he would loudly exclaim: "Here I am again, fragrant as a rose." Frequently office conversations were punctuated by puffs of perfume as this self-assured stenchutzpa sauntered by. Even the suggestion that he should take up "Pong Shui" was meet with the usual response of "no sweat." But when he resolutely declared that he didn't come down in the last shower his fellow workers could take no more.

Etymology: Stench & chutzpa; boldness, brashness, gall, effrontery, Nidork (nidor & dork); Dyspongnosis: condition of bad smell; Pong shui (shoo away the pong)

Pronunciation: ignərsent

Sentence: Harold tries to act all ignorscent about his poor hygiene. He has yet to use up the bar of soap he unwrapped last May. At this rate his toothbrush should remain pristine well into the next decade. Secretly, he is just as happy when people recoil in his presence. It means he doesn*t have to deal with them or all those pesky human emotions. He just slinks off to work on his computers. His computers don*t mind his stench at all.

Etymology: ignorant (lacking knowledge or awareness in general) + ignore (refuse to take notice of or acknowledge; disregard intentionally) + scent (a distinctive smell)

Created by: ErWenn

Pronunciation: /ˈfɪləˌstɪŋk/

Sentence: The culture in the U.S. is such that we've become quite sensitive to body odors, so it takes a true philistink to blissfully remain odorous in the face of wrinkled noses, backpedaling, and flat-out insults.

Etymology: From philistine (a person who is lacking in or smugly indifferent to cultural values, intellectual pursuits, aesthetic refinement, etc.) + stink (a strong, offensive smell)


I'm not actually sure how many people are familiar with the word "philistine," and it's just not as funny if you have to look up the definition. - ErWenn, 2007-10-02: 01:40:00

petaj I got it straight off. Good one. - petaj, 2007-10-02: 08:29:00
