Rasputum

Created by: karenanne

Definition: v. To expectorate unexpectedly, especially in situations where it is not considered socially acceptable. n. A person who habitually spits, even when among polite company.

Pronunciation: rah SPYU tum

Sentence: I don't really enjoy eating with my brother-in-law or sitting anywhere with him for any length of time, because he chews tobacco and seems to think it's OK to spit anywhere, at any time. I'm always worried that he's going to accidentally/on purpose spit into my drinking cup at dinner. Worst of all, Rasputum, as I like to call him, somehow got my sister to pick up his nasty habits, too.

Etymology: sputum + Rasputin (a person who is felt to have an insidious and corrupting influence)
