Bluffoon

Top verboticism of the day created by silveryaspen

Pronunciation: bluff oon

Sentence: There is no fool like an oaf fool. Clum Sy blundered and blustered around, often hitting his clunkhead and falling down. He was constantly embarrasssed by his lumpy and broken bonehead, black eyes, split lips, and an occasional broken nose, when he accidentally struck it, because he put it where it shouldn't be. Rather than admit he was just a bumpling box boy, he would pretend he was a boxer, and hoped no one would realize he was just a bluffoon.

Etymology: BLUFF, BUFFOON. BLUFF - try to mislead others about some thing. BUFFOON - a bumbling clumsy person, such people often unintentionally hurt themselves. Clowns often act this way to make people laugh and America's Funniest Home Videos tv show has lots of videos of buffoons. /// The first line contains the parody of oaf fool for old fool. /// His name Clum Sy is said clumsy. /// Clunkhead is a blending of the clunking a lunkhead takes. /// Bumpling is a blending of the bumps one gets when bumbling around. ///
