Perrant

Created by: jadenguy

Pronunciation: per ant

Sentence: Julius was always too perrant when he came into a new relationship. He'd argue about politics, he'd suggest that their notions of religion and morality were so askewed that species of wolves would better raise children, abhor the Home team enough to have his loathing displayed in tatoo form, and sometimes got into petty fistfights with either nurturer. They would laugh after and celebrate his candor and ferocity. Then they'd fetch beers, and he'd ask for the wrong brand; he'd be home drinking his watered down drivel while the family enjoyed a nice cool refreshing

Etymology: parent + errant (+ pair?)

COMMENTS:

Best. Beer Commercial. Ever. Anytime I see a guy with a goatee (smuggest facial hair ever) drive his hands through his slick black hair just before punching his future mother-in-law, i want a beer. - jadenguy, 2007-06-22: 10:50:00

I think you should add rant to your etymology - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-22: 11:58:00

heh, fair enough. - jadenguy, 2007-06-22: 15:57:00
