Word of the day: Asinine

The word of the day is ...

as·i·nine

[a-sə-nīn]

Adjective

1.  extremely or utterly foolish
2.  of, relating to, or resembling an ass 


Used in a sentence:
It is asinine that Jenny was promoted to the Turkey Leg Manager when she doesn't know the first thing about Turkeys or Legs.

I love this word for several reasons:
a. It’s fun to say (you sound like you’re cussing)
b. It’s a smart sounding word!  
c. It sounds like you're saying "ass-in-nine"   



 
Please leave a comment letting me know how you increased your vocabulary by using the word “asinine” today!



… just as long as it’s not asinine!
