Sentence: Reggie doesn't just tell a joke. He hits you upside the head with it. He loves it when he has a captive audience and can sillyhammer them in a lame attempt to entertain. Few, if any, find this appropriate for a Funeral Director.

Etymology: silly (absurd; ridiculous; irrational) + hammer (a tool consisting of a solid head, usually of metal, set crosswise on a handle, used for beating metals, driving nails)
