Wordfuse (Family Reunion Edition)

kincompoop (noun): kin + nincompoop = a somewhat idiotic member of one's family; one of the clan with distinct nitwit tendencies. 


Kincompoops inspire teethgrinding at family reunions for behaviours such as mooning Grandma or using the barbeque to light the fireworks.

Sounds like some of my Bogan rellies.
Bogan = Trailor Trash.

Great word! Every family has at least one!

Mooning Grandma is considered bad? Well lad-dee-dah.

dbs said...

@sprite Good to know.
@DSWS Yes I think they do.
@Homemaker Ha! I guess not if she's visually impaired.

We're always excited when Mom limits her mooning to our party instead of...say...a bible camp?

kincompoops in my family are more likely to get drunk and cry and fight someone and then pass out.

Excitement.

My Mom has 11 siblings. They all have wives and at least 3 children each.

The numbers are against me here is all I'm saying.

Chelle said...

Well.. some of them have husbands.

Cheeseboy said...

Oh, I've got tons of those in my family. The perfect word!

Every family has their Nutter, Bogan or Mental Lunatic they can't help it, it's in their Genes :-).

Maybe...?
Probably not.
You're much better at this.

Cool word

manders said...

i worry that I might be the kincompoop in my family :s

dbs said...

@EllyLou No worries. I think that happens to bible camp buses all the time.
@Lor Oh that's bad. The fighting drunks are definitely induce teeth-grinding.
@Chelle Yes. The numbers are def not in your favour.
@cheeseboy Thanks, and, uh that's too bad. Unless it's awesome; it can go both ways can't it?
@Windsmoke It's true. There's that word bogan again. I like it.
@AP Kidcomepoop is a very good word for parents attempting to potty-train their kids.
@G Thanks.
@manders If you have any inkling of self-consciousness that means you are definitely not the kincompoop.
