Word of the Day – Scaramouch

scaramouch |ˈskarəˌmoō sh; -ˌmoō ch |
noun archaic
a boastful but cowardly person.
ORIGIN mid 17th cent.: from Italian Scaramuccia, the name of a stock character in Italian farce, from scaramuccia ‘skirmish,’ ultimately from the same Germanic base as skirmish .

Where in the world did I get this one? Well, I’ve been rockin’ to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and decided to find out once and for all what that word was and what it means!! LOL
You know the lyrics…”Scaramouche,scaramouche will you do the fandango?”
(Yes, I see you scrambling to find your Queen album or maybe you have a cd or maybe its right there on your computer in iTunes. I highly suggest playing it at a very loud volume and singing all the words!)
