Wednesday word: Leave your friends bumfuzzled

Ever felt the need to confuse a person or leave them puzzled at what you said or have you found that there is no common word in the vocabulary to describe your action? Did you ever wake up in the middle of the night, uncertain about what shook you from your sleep…leaving you more confused.


Don’t fret…This word should perfectly describe what you are about to do to your close friends and family. BUMFUZZLE is a rare word which was an alteration of dumbfound and it means to be confuse; perplex; fluster.

Example: Joe was known to bumfuzzle his audience at poetry night.
