How to save money the Christmas!

Be sure to bring up politics at Thanksgiving this year to save on Christmas gifts.

Those are fighting words!

When you insult people using words they have to look up in the dictionary, you can rise above the fray with great satisfaction, while showing off your advanced intelligence. You will leave them red-faced and flummoxed, thinking, "What did he just call me?" An example, you say? Instead of calling someone "a pain in the ass," call them a coccydynia. It means exactly the same thing. Quizlet.com has helpfully provided 10 such words and here are 10 insulting words you should know:Bescumber: to spray with pooBuncombe: a ludicrously false statement that means bulls*** or nonsense.Cacafuego: a swaggering braggart or boasterCoccydynia: a pain in the buttCorpulent: very fatFeist or Fice: a person of little worth or someone with a bad temperFrenchify: to contract a venereal diseaseHircismus: offensive armpit odorMicrophallus: an unusually small penisNinnyhammer: a fool or a silly person
