Decorrigible

Created by: jadenguy

Pronunciation: DEE cor ridg ib ul

Sentence: It's not often that we get to stare into the Sun and feel good about it after, and this certainly wasn't one of those times for Darian. His decorrigibility still astounded his brother on new levels, his rIcarus feat less successful with the assistance of plexiglass eyewear.

Etymology: de + corrigible de is pretty obvious. i picked corrigable, because i think that once you've made the mistake, you can learn from it, but then you unlearn from it and commit it again, so that's how you know it's stupid even when you repeat it.

Numbskulligan

hooterbug

Created by: hooterbug

Pronunciation: /nŭm'skŭl-i-gən/

Sentence: Darrell was about to take a numbskulligan. Apparently he hadnt been convincing enough on his first try and he thought that by drinking just one more beer- he might just convince one of the fine ladies playing pool to take him home. "Alright, Gals!" Darrell staggered back over to the pool table. "Which one of you fine fillies wants to be my future ex-wife?" Darrell had a long walk home.

Etymology: Blend of "Numbskull" - A stupid person; a nitwit and "Mulligan" - Most simply put, a "do-over."
