Snollygoster

Dictionary.com still sends me an email every day.  Some days I already know the word and most days I think “I’ve never seen this word before and I doubt I’ll ever see it again.”  But it’s still fun.  Last week, the word snollygoster hit my Inbox.  It means a clever, unscrupulous person.  This definitely falls into the category of “I’ll probably never run into this again” but it seems like such a fun word that maybe I should play with it for a bit.

If you are clever

But a bit unscrupulous –

A snollygoster!

Can you use it in a sentence?  Extra points if you can do a better haiku than I did!

  1. Morning- I get the Dictionary.com word of the day as well. I move them all to a folder just for them. Sometimes it’s such an odd word I think “I’ll never use that” and I delete it. Or words that I am familiar with, I delete. Trouble is, i hardly ever go back to that folder and look up the words. Or I think ‘I saw a word for that once…’

  2. Excellent haiku today. Extra points for Bill for doing good haiku so early in the morning, extra points for Renee for using the word “roistering” which I just love, and double points for PJ who I know doesn’t really love these poetry days.

    And extra points for everybody else too.

      1. PJ is too damed confused to know what she likes these days. I’ll take all of the extra points I can get, though. Where I can I redeem them, and for what?
