Dulcarnon (noun) a person in a dilemma

today is rachel's birthday. HAPPY BIRHDAY RACHEL!

Other than that, I don't have anything else to post. I was reading through a magazine and there was an articale on funny OED dictionary words (by Ammon Shea). here are a few of them for your enjoyment.

Onomatomania (noun) Vexation at having difficulty in finding the right word

Debag (verb) to strip the pants from a person, either as a punishment or as a joke

Gound (noun) the gunk that collects in the corners of the eyes

Happify (verb) to make happy

Natiform (adj) Buttock shaped

Preantepenult (adj) not the last, not the one before the last, and not the one before the one before the last. the next one.

Sialoquent (noun) one who spits much in his speech

Unasinous (adj) being equal to another in stupidity

Zugzwang (noun) a disagreeable position in which a chess player is obliged to move but cannot do so without disadvantage

there were a bunch more, but I'm not the writer of the article so...

btw, if you went to look these up in the OED, they'd be there. these are REAL words people. yer average spellcheck doesn't know that though. *shrugs*
