Word Quiz Answers Revealed!

Because it’s Saturday, and I don’t want anyone doing homework on a weekend, I’m going to end your suffering. So, put down those Latin study books, and just scroll down. The great unknown is about to become less mysterious.

Thank you for playing this barmy (silly) word quiz, but I don’t think Jim would  be grateful for being called a glutton (edacious). The good news is, unless your date is extremely sensitive, you probably won’t get flak for complimenting her/his armpits (oxters), but it may still be enough to quash a budding romance.

Now, drumroll please, take a deep breath and prepare to be schooled in the bizarre:



This joker is being punished because he spends hours working his naturally wooly and crispy hair with a straight iron.



Doodle Sack

To some, it may sound profane, even painful, but playing/listening to the Bagpipes is a traditional and emotional experience for many.




If you have daughters of dating age, you can use this word before tossing her boyfriend out the door. I mean, how dare he fail to eat the small quantity of leftover meatloaf on his plate!




Try saying this word five times fast, and you will probably develop a fear of failure!

Now go back to bed! It’s too early to be up. Have a great weekend!

Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman's childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non. Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this country boy to life in the big cities. After a short stint as a private investigator, he moved into the role of Correctional Officer, working at both Millhaven Institution and Kingston Penitentiary, until it closed.

  1. Wow, you really couldn’t make these up. I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of Kakorrhaphiophobia before. “Fear of failure” itself is so common and it’s a talked about thing in society, but the word for it definitely isn’t.

    You know you still have an inner child in there somewhere when you can’t stop laughing at Doodle Sack & Tittynope 😂😂😂 With the latter, is that a small quantity of any left over, or specifically meatloaf? Who cares, I’ll be using it from now on anyway!

    1. Glad you enjoyed my little quiz, Caz! I would be afriad of failing to pronounce Kakorrhaphiophiobia. 🙂 Tittynope, as titillating as it sounds, is nothing more than a small quantity of something leftover (what a downer, I know 🙂 )


      1. Interesting! Someone gave me a book of Samuel Johnson’s insult a while ago. For example, if you encounter someone whose poetry you don’t like, you can call him a poetaster (a vile petty poet).
