Is your story in need of a know-it-all?

If so, then you might want to give him or her a vocabulary straight out of Mrs. Byrne's Dictionary of Unusual, Obscure, and Preposterous Words by Josefa H. Byrne.

This book contains 6000 wacky but "real" English words that have been legitimized by at least one major dictionary.

Trust me, I’m not just telling you this because I think you’re goubemouche (a gullible person).

So don’t be a quakebuttock (coward) – go get your copy today.

PROMPT: While I usually recommend writing that shouts clarity – just for fun, let’s get as wordy as a crazed cruciverbalist (one who loves doing crossword puzzles). After all, you never know when a character might need to floccinaucinihilipilificate (regard as worthless trivia) something like… um… today’s post.
