Wacky Word Wednesday - Effrontery

(eff rhunt er ee)

An act of effrontery
Has ample audacity,
Resembles skulduggery,
Is often perfunctory,
And does not intentionally
Inhibit your joy selfishly -

Every week I rhyme and define a new wacky word.
Come on over to indulge your inner nerd.
And, please let me know of any weird words you've heard.

  1. all about the actor
    with this one..

  2. I look forward to your verse
    educational and terse,
    they always bring me a smile
    except today because a crocodile
    ate my foot on my way to work,
    thanks a lot, you scaly selfish jerk.

    Love, Mosk

    1. You gave me SUCH a good laugh with this rhyme. :)

  3. Sometimes I think my blog is one mass effrontery.

  4. Effrontery sounds like it can be
    the basis for a man's bravery
    The acts and masks that free him from his fear
    And his inhibitive slavery

    When a man is not so super
    The cape and muscles
    may just save him from
    more than his share
    of actual tussles, scuffles, and troubles
    and leave him standing among the rubble.

    1. Thanks for sharing with me the way you see effrontery! :)

  5. Hi Rachel! I've always liked this word--it just is fun to say--effrontery, you ain't fooling me, I know the truth and can see, right through your effrontery ;-)


Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
