Pronunciation: win - uh - BEE - goh

Sentence: Alf, now friendless because of his winnebeego ways, is reduced to travelling the dusty roads of the outback in his Winnebago, all the while on his ultimate quest searching for the original black stump.

duhrections - apologies to zebrahdh but I just love that word! - bananabender, 2008-01-11: 19:41:00

For the curious the history of the saying is in this link: http://www.abc.net.au/queensland/heritage/stories/s680695.htm - bananabender, 2008-01-11: 19:51:00

The Dog On The Tuckerbox is an Aussie icon. The statue is located at Gundagai in NSW. - bananabender, 2008-01-11: 19:57:00

Disputin

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: disˈpyoōtin

Sentence: Victor's detractors referred to him as Disputin. He seemed to revel in any opportunity to jump in on a debate. Whatever opinion someone expressed, he was all too ready to take up the opposing argument. It didn't matter how trivial the point, he would hammer his rival into submission. The only thing worse his assault was the gloating that followed.

Etymology: dispute (a disagreement, argument, or debate) + Rasputin (Russian monk. He exerted great influence over Tsar Nicholas II and his family during World War I known for his powers of elocution)
