Jigornaught

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: jig or not

Sentence: Mo thought he was one suave dancer. He thought he could dance to any kind of music. Sadly none of his partners did. He was thought of as a jigornaught. Someone who goes through dance partners like arsewipe. Besides his poor floormanship, he also was decidedly a migratory flocking fool.He put the rum in rhumba, the tan in tango, the pass in paso doble, the the swine in swing and the diss in disco! He was the belly in belly dancing, the square in square dancing and the con in the conga! Because he honked so much at dancing properly, his showmanship was fowl and when people took a gander at his awkward moves, they called him Mohatno Gander,Lord of the Glance!

Etymology: jig (dance a quick dance with leaping and kicking motions)& or (else)& juggernaut (a massive inexorable force that seems to crush everything in its way & naught (complete failure )

The word circulated in the world of dance, making an appearance on the national stage when a guest judge used the term to describe a contestant on the reality TV program "So you think you can dance".
