English words that defy description – NSFW

In every language there seems to be some words that defy description beyond being just plain goofy. Here are some of the goofy words of the English language that I like with some definitional and spelling help from the Urban Dictionary, though the list is nearly endless and expanding all the time.

  • bass-ackwards – a nicer way of saying ass backwards
  • cadiwompus – not quite right or ass backwards
  • diddlysquat – do not give a shit or don’t care
  • dohickey – same as a whatchamacallit or a thingamabob
  • dorkshit – an idiot
  • dweeb – a nerd
  • kitty-corner and catty-corner – diagonally opposite you (how felines got into this equation is beyond me)
  • perdiddle – car with one headlight out
  • pondscum– someone who does not respect women or a lowlife
  • scrumpdilicious – thank you Dairy Queen for this one meaning “yummy”
  • thingamabob – an item whose name you cannot recall
  • thingamajig – same as above
  • turdbrain – same as birdbrain, only more assertive
  • whatchamacallit– when you don’t know the name of something and a name of a candy bar
  • whippersnapper – a young know it all
  • whosawhatsit – when you can’t recall an item or someone’s name
