Short but interesting post ! I never saw these words and like a lot bumpershoot...
Annie- That was my favorite word too!
Those are funny! I know kerfuffle but can never get it to come out of my mouth properly when I want to say it.
Joy Weese Moll- That's a tongue twister.
Furphy is new to me. I wonder if that would include the water bottles that are popular today. Thanks for playing along!
Bermudaonion- Could be and your welcome.
YAY. I knew 3! Haven't heard of bumpershoot before- it's certainly a funny sounding word. Furphy is quite commonly used in Australia actually, it was based on water containers, but is actually used for lying, or untruths "That's a furphy". I learnt tatterdemalion from Enid Blyton's Famous Five- she actually uses it a few times in the series of books.
Louise- Your comments to these words were interesting, thanks!
