Word for the Day

JOBBERNOWL.

This is another word from Anu Garg’s wonderful offerings. (A.Word.A.Day)

It’s an old and seldom-used word meaning ‘silly head’ or less kindly ‘idiot’ or ‘stupid person’. For me it is a spoken-word equivalent of a delicious chocolate. It’s just a delight to say…a word to savour.

My aim is to find a way to include it in a story or poem, or better still to let it star.
