Spicy, Saucy, & Sassy Words To Use In Your Scrapbooks

Spicy, Saucy, & Sassy Words To Use In Your Scrapbooks

I love words and the flexibility of language. It’s a complete marvel to me. I especially love it when people make up new words that are funny or have a really good ‘mouth feel’.

What inspired this post was a recent use of the word ‘nincompoopery’.

First, the root word of ‘nincompoop’ is wonderful just on its own and frankly needs more distribution in the corporate world, but to add the ‘ery’ on the end? Brilliant and extremely applicable to so many things. Politics, Bosses, the DMV…. you get the idea.

So how about some wonderfully irreverent, spicy, saucy, & sassy words that you can use to season your scrapbooks with?

Here’s a short (but hopefully entertaining) list of words to consider adding.

  • Shemozzle
  • Kerfuffle
  • Craptasticness
  • Blingalicious
  • Floppola
  • Hinky
  • Shenannigans
  • Administrivia
  • Sniglets

And speaking of sniglets….

These are from the Washington Post’s Style Invitational

Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.

Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.

Giraffiti (n): Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.

Sarchasm (n): The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn’t get it.

Inoculatte (v): To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.

Hipatitis (n): Terminal coolness.

Osteopornosis (n): A degenerate disease.

Karmageddon (n): It’s like, when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it’s like, a serious bummer.

Decafalon (n.): The grueling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you.

Glibido (v): All talk and no action.

Dopeler effect (n): The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.

Arachnoleptic fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after you’ve accidentally walked through a spider web.

Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out.

Caterpallor (n.): The color you turn after finding half a grub in the fruit you’re eating.

Ignoranus (n): A person who’s both stupid and an *******.

I hope you’ve enjoyed some of my sassy words and hope you find some of them useful and fun to add you your scrapbooks. I’m kind of a geek about collecting these, and if you have any favorites you’d like to share, please post them in the comments on our Facebook page.
