You probably won't be able to find this in any dictionary, but I had to say it:
SUPER-KALA-FRAGELISTIC-EXPI-ALLA-DOSHUS

It's that word from Merry Poppins. I think if I can remember the film properly, if you could say it, you could be truley happy! laugh.gif

OK! So I'm not the best speller in the world! Don't need to rub it in my face!

I may have refrained from correcting you if this weren't the word-of-the-day/educational thread. We don't want to teach the public a new yet misspelled word, do we? And I've never seen Mary Poppins in my life. huh.gif

in·cor·ri·gi·ble

adjective
1. impossible to change: impossible to correct or reform
incorrigible cynics
2. unruly and unmanageable: very difficult to control or keep in order

noun

Here is one of my personal favorites as it relates to one of my favorite characters, the Saiyan Prince Vegeta

nefarious

: flagrantly wicked or impious : EVIL
synonym see VICIOUS
- ne·far·i·ous·ly adverb

This is a good thread whereas an adept vocabulary is absent in the youth of today.

I'm not conveying that all youth has no knowledge of a dictionary just that they do not seem to care.
