Wacky Word Wednesday - Fanfaron

Fanfaron
by Rachel Hoyt

isn't a fan baron,
nor a fan of Aaron,
or a baby heron.

But a boaster named Aaron,
and a bragging baron,
could both be called fanfarons.

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. I'm trying to think about how prissy it would sound if I called someone that in public.

    "Cease your rascality you fanfaron!", and then I would smack him with my white silk glove or something.

    2. Silly girl, I would never call you a fanfaron! I was trying to leave a nice comment that didn't include a lot of bad four-letter descriptions of fanfarons I have encountered throughout my life so far! :)
