Lambastard

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: LAM bas terd

Sentence: John is a lambastard who tends to angrily dismiss or criticize everything he hears. If he can pick apart any detail and prove you wrong, he will. He doesn't even seem to really be enjoying himself - he just seems pissed off all the time. He still hasn't figured out that being friendly is sometimes more important than being right.

Etymology: lambaste (to criticize severely, berate harshly) + bastard. Yes, OK, I know that the first word is correctly pronounced "lam' bast," with a short "a," but I just couldn't resist. Anyway, the alternative was "contradickt," and I already used "dick" this week.

Luckily the ancient reptile was hungry and headed off in search of food.
