ravendesk commented on the word jokmockockery
This is an imaginary word I created because I could not find a word that meant all three with the shading I imagined. It is a portmanteau of the three words, joking, mocking, and cocky. But most real words are portmanteaus, after all. Even daisy comes from "days eye."

Thanks! I remember that word now. Not sure where I discovered it originally though.
ravendesk commented on the word gongoozler
Gongoozling can actually get you a lot in life. I think the definition is almost as funny as the word.
This is a delightful example of a word that sounds exactly like what it means, and both the sound and meaning intrigue me. I bet there is even a word for "a word that sounds like what it means"...is there?
