bumfuzzle
PRONUNCIATION: (bum-FUZ-uhl)
MEANING:
verb tr.: To confuse.
ETYMOLOGY:
From bum-, probably from bamboozle (to deceive) + fuzzle (to confuse). Earliest documented use: 1900.
============================================================

BUMGUZZLE:
1. to empty a pint of Mellow Corn whiskey with a single swallow.

A COMMENT ON:
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
I don't trust a man who uses the word evil eighteen times in ten minutes. If you're half evil, nothing soothes you more than to think the person you are opposed to is totally evil. -Norman Mailer, author (1923-2007)

Any man who could sit with Norman Mailer for ten minutes and limit himself to only eighteen shouts of "evil" is a man not well read.
