Stressing the first syllable makes this a fun word to say and the 2nd and 4th syllables rhyme ... fun word. Could have other daffynitions ... like: 1) what you say when you drop a baby. 2) what you say when you spill a drink on your date's lap 3) what you say when you baby, filling his diabper, smells up the room! I think you could have a lot of fun thinking up daffynitions for this word! - silveryaspen, 2007-12-13: 15:16:00

Buffoonokudos

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: buf-FOON-uh-KOO-dose

Sentence: Timmy the Beard's legendary lack of social skills almost caused his death when he offered his heartfelt BUFFOONOKUDOS to Portly Peggy on her advanced pregnancy.

He was hustled away in the nick of time, and after the application of several shots of Yugolavian plum brandy, was finally convinced of his near-fatal BUFFOONOKUDOS, but in the end, it only added to his legendary status as the life of the party.

Etymology: BUFFOON+KUDOS=BUFFOONOKUDOS............BUFFOON:a gross and usually ill-educated or stupid person,a ludicrous figure : clown ;Middle French bouffon, from Old Italian buffone.....KUDOS:praise given for achievement,fame and renown resulting from an act or achievement;Greek kydos.

Obstetrickall

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ob stet rik all

Sentence: Wearing a flowing Kaftan coupled with her recent surgery, Jim's beer-addled brain thought his boss Fred's wife Kathy looked very pregnant. When he commented on their new addition, by saying all deliveries were to go to the rear of the building, he realized that it was an obstetrickall illusion. After she slapped him, at the Labor Day barbeque, he realized he was a victim of suggestation. Soon-to-be unemployed dunce that he was, he further joked in his Miss Prissy accent, "I don't know nothin' about babyin', Miss Scarlett!" This started a fight in which he became embryoled in a breech of the law. His confinement in the county jail should end soon, in about 9 months.
