2 New Vocabulary Words

New Orleans has a fair number of locally coined terms that suit us just fine (dressed po-boy, neutral ground, banquette, etc.). In the last couple of days, I have heard two words that are new to me but that I think could really come in handy if used in the right situation.

1. Jackassery - n. The act of acting like a jackass, ineptitude. e.g., There is a lot of jackassery going on with FEMA and the damn red tape.

2. Assholery - adj. The act of acting link an a$$hole. - The assholery nature of certain political candidates should immediately disqualify them for public office (e.g. Edwin Edwards, KWB).

Feel free to use these words in your writings and postings.
