Verboticism: Scofficer

Scofficer

Created by: Tigger

Definition: n. A person who insults people for a living. v. To get paid to insult your customers.

Pronunciation: /SKOF-uh-ser/

Sentence: Mr. C. really only had one true talent — making scathing comments and delivering insults that could bring many people to tears. Fortunately, he had a job where he could do exactly that, a real mockupation. His job as a scofficer was to ridicule other people's talents, (or lack of talents). To the latest singing contestant he said, "If you had lived 2,000 years ago and sung like that, they would have stoned you." Then, as expected, Paula slapped his right arm and began to scold him, while Randy just shook his head and tried not to laugh, saying "Yo dog, that was cold, Simon."

Etymology: Scoff - to speak derisively; mock; jeer (from Old Norse, skaup "mockery") + Officer - a person who holds a position of rank or authority in an organization (from Latin, officium "service, duty")
