Kid Definition Witty

In the tradition of Kids Say The Darndest Things (or the more modern Little Big Shots), The Funny Dictionary: An A-Z of Kids` Funny Definitions shares hundreds of real-life examples of funny definitions of children collected by teachers and examiners over the decades. This erroneous definition of spoonerism is enchanting. Apparently, the child had already heard of the spoon and therefore defined a spoon as follows: “A spoon is a love story”. Ouch. Exclusively for Mamamia readers, here are my top 10 funny definitions from The Funny Dictionary: The adjective funny can be used to describe those quick and funny little remarks that often show vivid and biting humor delivered in a playful way. Funny usually describes things that are fun at the drop of a hat, rather than elaborate or carefully planned remarks in advance. This adjective is usually used in a complementary way, but like its cousin intelligently, it can be used sarcastically, as someone who doesn`t appreciate your sentences by saying, “Well, aren`t we funny today.” A funny remark is smart and funny and just the right timing. If you make such a remark, you are also considered spiritual. Of course, what causes laughter varies from person to person. Scientists say that the emotion that a word evokes when it is said leads to a laugh from the belly. (So what sounds funny to you may not seem funny to someone else!)

The results can be hilarious. Informally, someone, especially a child, who gets very agitated The word idiot has nothing to do with cats, unless your cat is twisted or oblique.

Fetish, says the innocent child, “is an adjective for people who like to go to parties.” It`s just sick! Popular with parents (who have probably used it more than once to describe their children), the word lallygag means “spending time hurting or lazy.” The word is an Americanism dating from 1860-65. It`s pretty obvious what makes this word funny (that`s the poop part; everyone laughs at the word).

A nincompoop is “a fool or a simpleton”. The word, which has nothing to do with feces, although feces are part of it, was first recorded around 1670-80. Its origin is a bit mysterious. American humorous a very young child, especially the one who started crawling (= moving on the ground) This word is not the one you want to hear, nor is it something you are likely to call someone else, as flibbertigibbet means a person who is frequently “babbling or fleeting” and can be taken negatively. You may be confused (the act of confusion) or you may silence someone else (if your words or actions confuse another person). You can also find something amazing. Britishinformal a very short and thin person, often a child If you want to use the word catawampus for more than one laugh, use it to describe something sitting in the corner. For example, the person living next to the person directly in front of you would experience Catawampus at your home. Instead of complaining that your Wi-Fi is running slowly, you should blame it for the gag.

Do you straddle the clock to warm up your cocoa before the film previews end?

He thought fiction was associated with correction when he defined fiction as “those books that are fixed on shelves and are not allowed to be moved; Non-fiction books are not fixed and can be moved at will. Like new! In fact, the word is thought to be a combination of colic words (a common newborn disease that often leads to countless hours of excitement and tears – from parents and the affected baby) and wobbles.

It is documented in English around 1595-1605. Bumfuzzle was first recorded around 1900-05, which means it has been making people laugh for over 100 years.

You might guess that codswallop is what happens when you`re hit by a fish, but the word is actually British slang for “nonsense or garbage.” Harry Potter fans should be familiar with the word, as it was used by Hogwarts` favorite guardian, Hagrid, in the first book about the young wizard.

A child who misbehaves but loves too much to be angry with Lallygag is a great word to describe how to lazy, hang out, or hang out (another good word!), but your kids will find it less humorous when addressing them.

Instead, you can share a laugh and use it to talk about other things. Informally, someone, especially a child, who misbehaves but is funnier than annoying Some words are so funny that they make us laugh when we say them out loud. Whether it`s the way they tickle the tongue or just the stupid way they sound, some words cause laughter when we let them slip. In fact, scientists say that the word laughter, which means “laughing in a stupid way that is interrupted by repeated gasps for the air,” is one of the funniest words in the English language.

So you can use it to talk about the antics of hackers – or anyone else who misbehaves! Even if you add the word to your verbal diet, you might just consider light usage.

Some people will be offended to be called nincompoop. So you can just use it for laughs! The word first appeared around 1830-40, and according to one theory, it breaks down into kata- meaning “diagonal” (like cater-cornered) and wampus, similar to wampish (“waving or floating back and forth”).
