Word Of The Week - Monday 21st July

Mephitic (meh-fih-tic)

This adjective means offensive to the smell.

Perfect when something (or someone) smells utterly horrid, this word is disguised to sound unoffensive.  Alike to most of my previous words, you can use it around others without them having the slightest clue as to the rude statement you have just made.   67 more words
