I refuse to get involved with a certain discussion or the word obstreperous, especially after getting nicked over using a 3 syllable word, but here’s a link to clear up any dictionary hiccups.


Nowhere in the definition did I see anything about knowledge, integrity, or honesty. I’ll take an obstreperous, honest, decent, knowledgable person of integrity over a smiling crook anyday.

That is, if I can ever remember that obscure word!

At the outset I was somewhat befuddled and the sibylline nature of this denotation. Nevertheless, being of the inquisitive type I endeavored to ascertain the antecedent conditions underlying it emergence.

Alas, sometimes people can just be obstreperous and obtuse.

I personally don’t engage in multisyllabic phraseology.

My brain hurts.

Hey! I resemble that remark! Nyuk nyuk!

Eschew obfuscation.

Mad props for efficacious brevity.

I missed the first half of this I guess, how about this for a reply?

?I prefer the wisdom of the unlearned to the folly of the loquacious?

Marcus Tullius Cicero

Brain hemorrhage more later!

talking or tending to talk much or freely; talkative; chattering; babbling; garrulous: a loquacious dinner guest.
characterized by excessive talk; wordy: easily the most loquacious play of the season.

Contrary to what many think, it is not obstreperous to refuse to look up definitions.

I hope, OK, that you understood I was trying my pathetic best to make a funny, based on the comment about using big words.
