Perissology: Greek. The act of not shutting up. Jesus Christ, I start thinking my roommate is majoring in perissology whenever he starts talking about his feelings for Natty Light.
Hoddypeak: A fool, simpleton, or blockhead.
Quagswag: The act of shaking to and fro. I told my boyfriend he had quagswag when he almost peed his pants during “The Conjuring,” and he thought I meant actual swagger.
Gardyloo: used in Edinburgh as a warning cry when it was customary to throw slops from the windows into the streets. Kimball should really have someone calling a gardyloo when they go to put the taco meat out on Tuesdays.
Collywobbles: A stomachache. I heard a Jesuit tell a student he had collywobbles; I think the priest must have been born in 1902.
Argy-bargy: Noisy arguing. This year’s political commentary is just argy-bargy.
