WordClown: -noun. 1. A person
who unwittingly entertains others thru what
they (alone) believe to be cleverly deceptive
syntax. They often
mistakenly assume themselves
to be quite sophisticated, scholarly or brilliant--not suspecting that others are laughing at their buffoonery. 2. A faux-intellectual or laughably inept "expert" who inadvertently provides entertainment by using words as if they were loudly beeped
out of a clown's squeeze-horn. 3. One who pathetically attempts to defend
the indefensible by distracting everyone with
a word-juggling act worthy of a clown.
WordClownism is a disease that is triggered by fact-finding
or whistleblowing, at which time the WordClown immediately
begins spinning, twisting or otherwise
torturing the truth in a frantic effort to keep it hidden. Their desperation is so great that they begin spewing
non-sensical words, framed with much gravitas--which
only heightens the hilarity.
