As you know, dear readers, I am a big fan of obsolete words and using them in every day conversation, especially when the obsolete words are particularly awesome. After all, wouldn’t Sir Mix A Lot’s “Baby Got Back” have been even more awesome if he’d said “I like callipygian butts and I cannot lie” instead? I certainly think so.
It is a shame and a travesty that so many fabulous obsolete words have gone out of fashion, and because of this, I’d like to ask you, dear readers, to help me bring some of them back. Like today’s word, “slubberdegullion.” How fun would that be to use in a conversation with a friend, or maybe the checkout lady at your local grocery store? Maybe us using it in everyday conversations will start a chain reaction that results in Taylor Swift using it in her upcoming single ranting about her latest ex-boyfriend. Dear readers, who’s with me in wanting to hear the word “slubberdegullion” in a Taylor Swift song? All of you? Excellent! Now get out there and use “slubberdegullion” as often as you can so we can make this happen!
