Word of the day (month? year?)

If there is one thing that you never want to be called, that would be a "chump." Not because of anything the word insinuates ~
chump | ch əmp|
noun informala foolish person how can this chump be a detective?• an easily deceived persona sucker.ORIGIN early 18th cent. (in the sense [thick lump of wood] ): probably a blend of chunk and lump or stump .~ but because it just sounds dumb. I mean, who wants to be called a blend of chunk, lump, and stump? When I was growing up in the hinterlands of the midwest, I had to work on chopping and stacking wood all day every Saturday. Let me tell you, the lumpy chunky stumps were the worst. So be smart, look sharp, and don't ever glance up at the ceiling, no matter what they say is written up there.

Hahaha... how can this chump be a detective? What a chumpy example. There has got to be a joke in there somewhere.
