Modern insults are rather uncreative. Our vocabulary has become drab and boring when you want to make yourself feel better by making someone else feel worse. Today’s word of the day aims to solve that problem.
jackanape (n.) IPA Pronunciation:
That jackanapes with scarfs: why is he melancholy?
-All’s Well That Ends Well
“That guy totally cut me off! THOU PEEVISH JACKANAPE!” It’ll catch on. All in good time.
