Word of the Week: Mundungus

MUNDUNGUS

I’m beginning to notice a theme for this month. That being said I think Mundungus is slang like Redunkulous. 

“Didn’t the pigeons say that over & over again in Bolt?  Plus, a check out girl said that at the store yesterday, pretty funny.  But no, it’s not, that’s mundungus.  You see the Dung in the word, eL?  That was your biggest clue.  It means-”

Poo?

“No, rubbish, refuse.”

What’s Dung have to do with it?
Please stop singing, you are no Tina Turner. 

“Fine I suppose that was a stretch, not the singing but my weak attempt to dissect a word.  I’ll leave it to the experts.  Mundungus, has become increasingly popular as a character in the Harry Poter saga.  Could you imagine naming your child Mundungus?  Where are you going eL?”

To check the pronunciation, I think you should name your first-born this.

“Redunkulous!”
