Dear readers, I know I have given you a number of fantastic obsolete words in the past to help you expand your vocabulary and give you ways to sound awesome in conversations with people. From tyromancy and slubberdegullion, to jargogle and callipygian (which is still my favorite thing ever, by the way), these words have been applicable for all walks of life and demographics…except for hipsters. It has been brought to my attention that no true hipster would use the word “callipygian,” because Baby Got Back is far too mainstream to even dane acknowledgement of, even in an example sentence, and while they might use “tyromancy” ironically, it isn’t all that likely.
So, because I want to make sure that hipsters are equally represented in my Awesome Obsolete Word of the Day collection, here is a word that is just for you, dear hipsters. Go forth with your moccasins and plaid and use it well.
