Contradick

libertybelle

Created by: libertybelle

Pronunciation: kon-trah-dik

Sentence: Cody was being a typical contradick and kept interrupting Jenny's story with a contrasting and persnickity comment. It didn't really matter whether it was a beagle or a greyhound that ran out in front of her car, she just wanted to tell the police officer that she swerved to miss a dog and hit his patrol car.

Etymology: contradict + dick (nuff said!)

Lambastard

karenanne

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.

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)
