So I have this reputation at work for being a little smarter than the average bear, which I attribute to the fact that I occasionally let loose with a big, intelligent sounding word mixed in with my usual string of curses. Which got me thinking, why not share some of my favs, invite everyone to share some of theirs, and watch hilarity ensue us we uterly confuse those around us? Impress your friends! Intimidate your coworkers! Make your boss feel inadequate! The world will be your oyster with but a few of these magical words! Let's get things going with a personal favorite:

Troglodyte - basically, a caveman.

Great as a noun, though I prefer this one in its adjectival form, troglodytic. The best thing about this one is that you can refer to someone as a troglodyte right to their face, and, providing you're right, they won't know what the hell you're talking about! Talk about a win-win!

Anyone else care to pass on a nugget of conversational gold?

lmfao - I have a bout 8 years worth of emails from wordsmith.org (A Word A Day mailing list) from which I can pull a lot of obscure words.

 

asinine tends to be one of my favorites, b/c most people don't even know the meaning of the word.

 

as·i·nine
ˈasəˌnīn/
adjective
adjective: asinine
1.
extremely stupid or foolish.

Seriously. Look it up.

I just put "cornhobble" in the dictionary.com app. The return was "do you mean cornhole?" Ummm, no

My first attempt at posting wasn't successful, so I'll try again.

Fard: as a verb, it means to apply makeup. When I'm behind one of the ladies I work with at a stop light, and see them applying makeup, I give them a hard time about my seeing them farding while driving. They seem to think I'm accusing them of doing something else

Malodorous. Okay so its not really a big or particularly intelligent sounding word, but it certainly rolls off the tongue better than "smells like s--t" :lol:

The more I think about it, the more I am sure it's been longer.  Because we were getting them when we were on MSN dialup and that was back pretty close to then.  I just don't have them on my work system.
