  • The pronunciation given for this word (as of 2 Jan 2010), / ˈpərgoʊklə, gjuklə /, cannot be right; specifically, the extraneous "k" sound.

  • The standard spelling is perfectible.

  • The OED defines bushwa as "Rubbish, nonsense," and for the etymology notes: "app. a euphemism for BULLSHIT." The latter is, I think, pretty obvious. There is no connection in either etymology, sense, or usage to "bourgeois." The OED cites examples dating back to the 1920s.
