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.

Lyle is finally out of Intensive Care and recuperating nicely, although he's driving the doctors and nurses crazy.
