Paragoge (par-a-go’-ge): The addition of a letter or syllable to the end of a word. A kind of metaplasm.

My brainzini is pumping wisdom— going to smart man city. I got this word game called Wugwordy. It is fantasticated! Since I started playing, I’ve become a word-wise-ass. You may be wondering how to play.

Well, first you go to the on-line game site. Then, you get out your letter bucket. The bucket is filled with letters that you bought from Wugwordy. Next, you dump your letter bucket onto your I-Pad’s screen, completely covering it with letters. Then, you make five words from the letters you dumped on your screen. Finally, you take a picture of your words and post it on Instagram, with a brief caption taunting your friends. You are now one colossarola player, known around the internet for your Wugwordy prowess and the jealousy directed at you by your almost no longer friends.

Losing friends has always been the cost of superiority. Don’t worry, you’ll find other superior people and make new friends with. You can be superior with each other and address put downs to the non-superior people that you have to work with, and basically, inhabit the same planet with. “Lame Brain” is one of my favorite put downs. “Nit Wit” too.

Can you spell “Shit head?” You may be a Wugwordy wizard too!
