Word of the Week #79

gallimaufry - [gal-uh-MAW-free] - noun

Definition:
A hodgepodge; jumble; confused medley.

Usage:
Other people have color-coordinated Christmas trees and decorations, while I prefer a gallimaufry look.

But not quite this bad.


Or the houses you can see on uglychristmaslights.com. But I'm kinda digging this one.

That is one weird word. To me it's a gallimaufrey of letters they just flung together and said it was a word that means exactly what it is. ;)

I'm with Ali on this one. What a strange word. Still, I like it. =]
