Interesting new words

I like the word "fucknuggetry" quite a bit, but the following, from a news announcement over on Dreamwidth, made me laugh, too:

Things that are not spam are generally aimed at a specific account or community and unique to that account or community: [...] other general acts of asspimplehood.

"Asspimplehood" — you gotta love it. ^^ And here's another, related one, from the same post:

All of those things are definitely obnoxious and unwanted, but they aren't spam. They can be dealt with by turning on the "human test" (which may discourage the casual asspimple commenter) [...]

Google does not have any hits for the word "asspimplehood" beyond that DW news entry yet; "asspimple" gets about 7000, but most of them seem to refer to actual pimples on your behind, not the proverbial "Oaschwoazn". :)

If the measure of a language is its expletives, English definitely does quite well. =:D

I've always been quite fond of the comparatively genteel "dingleberry", or the time-honored "douchenozzle". The SLU forums can sometimes toss out some quite creative ones as well, particularly in regard to folks that inspire such, as with one twerp that more or less took over a Blender group in-world, despite not actually being able to model anything, as you can see some pages into this thread. The results, when he finally offers up his attempt, are.. well, let's be honest, comical. ^_^

Oh yes, "douchenozzle" is one of my favorites, too — the mental image it evokes is just too funny, and "douche" is an interesting word insofar as that while there's a cognate in German ("Dusche", meaning "shower"), the concept itself does not translate well, leading to frequent confusion when someone's just learning about it (or encountering the insult for the first time). :)

Ah, I took a quick look, but if there were any comical insults, they didn't seem to be found on the first page, and the rest of what I read on there didn't entice me to dig further. Really, that sort of drama is precisely why I don't read most forums — I just don't care for it.

Comical insults would still be nice, though. :)
