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")


Great the American Idol reference...yes, Mr.C. can be scoffensive, but that's why we love him! - Nosila, 2008-07-01: 02:27:00

I hope Mr. McCulloch isn't insulted... ~ James

I've often noticed that the verbotoons have striking similarities to famous people. I wonder if the artist uses reference photos...

As Kurt Vonnegut said of his novels, this artwork is fiction and "All persons living or dead are purely coincidental, and should not be construed." Except of course, for the drawing of Vonnegut himself, which is meant to be who it appears to be. ~ James

Everybody's coincidental? All 12 billion of us? I like the sound of that. And I definitely agree that you shouldn't construe anybody. It's just not nice, even if they are already dead.

CONGRATS! INSULTANT is simple yet effective. I wish i could learn not to use a large word when a diminutive one will do. Economy is everything.
