Volume 7.

Still more stuff that should be in the dictionary but isn’t.

Previous installments of the Blog d’Elisson Dictionary may be found in the Archives: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3, Volume 4, Volume 5, and Volume 6.

syphilupagus [sif-il-up-a-gus] (n) - Venereal disease transmitted by talking mastodons.

cartoonfatwa [car-toon-fat-wa] (adj) - Having the quality of irrational, extreme overreaction, especially in the face of minimal provocation.

Let’s use it in a sentence, shall we?

“I stopped off at Murphy’s for a few shots last night and ended up coming home at 2 a.m. I’ll be damned if the Missus didn’t go all cartoonfatwa on my ass.”
