Pronunciation: /vuhl'-groom-ər/

Sentence: Every time I looked over at Ted during the meeting, he was vulgrooming himself -- first, picking food out of his teeth, then with a finger stuck in his ear, digging around for earwax, which he later scraped off on the edge of the table -- as if the conference room were his personal bathroom, and the rest of us were simply intruding, and subject to witness his rather uncouth hygienic habits.

Etymology: vulgar (Latin, vulgāris - equiv. to vulg[us] the general public) + groom (possibly from Old French, grommet - "servant"); Vulgroom, -er, -ing
