Rebutthead

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /ri-BUHT-hed/

Sentence: Lyle was such a rebutthead that he started an argument with the mugger who was trying to rob him, telling him that he wasn't holding the gun correctly. At first Lyle tried to demonstrate with his empty hands but the criminal was incompetent, and Lyle told him so. Frustrated, he reached for the gun to show the mugger again. Lyle is finally out of Intensive Care and recuperating nicely, although he's driving the doctors and nurses crazy.

Etymology: Rebut - to refute by evidence or argument (from Old French, rebuter "to thrust back") + Butthead - a stupid or inept person (slang: buttheads often "butt heads" with other people, but the 'anal' connotation is clear. Also, Beavis' buddy)
