Justbec's Odd and Unusual Info of the Day - 5/19


Word of the Day

Polrumptious
(pohl-RUMP-shus)
Adjective:
-Restive, rude, obstreperous, uproarious.
-Raucous, disruptive, unruly; overconfident.

From Middle English ‘polle’ meaning "head," from Middle Low German or Middle Dutch ‘pol’ "head, top.”
+
Late Middle English “rump” (probably of Scandinavian origin); compare with Danish and Norwegian rumpe ‘backside.’
+
suffix “-tion” (Kent)
(So basically, this word means butt-head)

Used in a sentence:
“Watch yourself, that termagant is a polrumptious malapert to be avoided at all cost if you wish to avoid orchidectomy.”
