Fustilugs

Definition: a ponderous clumsy person.

Fustilugs is one of those words that do a certain amount to renew one’s faith in the notion that English language makes sense.

  • It is an obscure word that manages to still be fairly self-explanatory. It comes from combining the words fusty (“not fresh, stale”) and lug (“a heavy clumsy fellow”).
