  • OED: A term of contempt for one considered wanting in gentlemanly breeding.

    August 26, 2010

  • ~A lout, jerk, clod, boor, slob, boob, fathead, sap

    ~A musical band called Clinchpoop
    Throughout its explosively short 12 month lifespan, Clinchpoop produced 3 standalone records. Since then, no label has stepped forward to carry on the band's albums since OEO's untimely demise at the turn of the century. Just as 1000s have been moved to tears by the pale beauty of "The Sloth Song," thousands more have experienced the encaged fury of "Turn That Frown Upside Down" or the anti-establishment battle cry of "Clip Clop." This was a group with legitimate range, with the ability to go from sunshiny highs to grimy, bitter lows. This was a relationship that ended far too soon. This was Clinchpoop.

  • I just love that this word's been added to so many lists. Woo hoo!

  • It is a great word, John, but you're not putting your former favorite words on your favorites list (e.g., orphling). Have they dropped so far from favor?

  • Amazing indeed. Pragmatical clinchpoop is my new favorite phrase. Chained, you are opening up a whole new world of bizarre words for us. :-)

  • This is a word I will use at a perfect moment...it will lie in the weeds just waiting.
    Love it!

  • "'Why, as to that,' said Jack, blowing on his coffee-cup and staring out of the stern-window at the harbour, 'as to that...if you do not choose to call him a pragmatical clinchpoop and kick his breech, which you might think ungenteel, perhaps you could tell him to judge the pudding by its fruit.'

    "'You mean, prove the tree by its eating.'

    "'No, no, Stephen, you are quite out: eating a tree would prove nothing. And then you might ask him, had he ever seen many poltroons in the Navy?'"
