Definition: Carriwitchet (pronounced ka-ri-witch-et); Middle English; noun
1. A pun or a paradox; a riddling question.
Why I love this word:
This word is about the questions or topics that make you think outside of the realm of any obvious terms. Puns are definitely fun. They are sometimes just simple sentences, but with the right use of the right words, you have a pretty mind blowing statement. Here are just a few of my favorite puns:
Can you imagine a world with no hypothetical situations?
Would an IV confuse a Roman doctor?
Why are there self-help groups?
Why do you stand up and say your name at Alcoholic's Anonymous?
