A fanfaron is known for jactation.
Whether at home, work, or on vacation,
he or she boasts without pause or hesitation.
That's why fanfaron's are known for jactation.

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. For a minute I though you might have dipped into the 'Urban Dictionary' for this one, but then the fanfaron would be considered a whoremunger because of all their jactation.:O

    1. LOL. No, I've browsed the Urban Dictionary, but feel those words don't have as much class as the older wacky words. :)
