Awhaped and betrumped
we’re stumped for words;
as war & fury can be waged
in only hundred forty letters
Cause when quacksalver and
coney-catch can match the
facts of science we can just as
well accept: the earth is flat.
Paul gives us a great list of words that we need to save from extinction at toads.
Betrump: To deceive, cheat; to elude, slip from
Awhape: To amaze, stupefy with fear, confound utterly
Quacksalver: A person who dishonestly claims knowledge of or skill in medicine, a pedlar of false cures.
Coney-catch: To swindle, cheat, to trick, dup, deceive
