pomposterous is a valuable coinage, I believe.

It's a combination of pompous and preposterous; hence pomposterous.

Do we know any pomposterous people around here?

No fair if you pick a "Carp".

That's like shooting carp in a barrel.

That's no fair, Grapho.

You don't get to be "pompous" around here unless you get to be a "Carpal Tunnel".

This sounds like something for the Emperor Fallacious to decide.
