According to an arrest report, a man concerned that he had been conned by a methamphetamine dealer contacted Florida police and asked them to test his drugs and “press charges” against the dealer if he had “been given the wrong narcotics.” 49-year-old Douglas Peter Kelly called the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and told a deputy that he had a “violent reaction” after smoking what he thought was “speed.” Kelly told cops that he believed that the drug in question was actually Flakka, the notorious synthetic stimulant. After speaking with cops, Kelly drove to the sheriff’s office “because he wished to have the illegal narcotics tested.” Kelly subsequently provided cops with a piece of aluminum foil that contained a “clear, crystal-like substance.” A field test of the substance provided by Kelly resulted in a “positive reaction for the presence of methamphetamine.” While perhaps relieved that his dealer was not cheating him, Kelly’s mood likely changed when police arrested him on a felony narcotics possession charge.

The Grandiloquent Word of the Day

LINK TO TODAY'S WORD - Grandiloquent Words

Puzzomous (PUZ-uh-mus)
-Disgustingly servile or obsequious in behaviour.
-Obedient or attentive to an excessive or servile degree.

Origin unknown-ish, but the original documentation of this word comes from a book with the Brobdingnagian title “A Glossary of Yorkshire Words and Phrases, Collected in Whitby and the Neighbourhood, with Examples of Their Colloquial Use, and Allusions to Local Customs and Traditions.” by Francis Kildale Robinson, 1809-1882 - wherein it gives this definition:
-puzzom 'poison', puzzomful 'poisonous', and puzzomous 'poisonous'.

So one may ask where do we get “servile” or “obsequious” from “poison”? As it turns out, a now archaic definition for obsequious is “dutiful in regard to the dead and in the proper and appropriate performance of obsequies (funeral rites).”

Used in a sentence:
'Gwenda told that mammothrept little carker, Dermot, to stop being so blatantly puzzomous.”

Hoboken, New Jersey police have apprehended a Bayonne man who allegedly tried to rob the tellers at Investors Bank on River Street last week. The robbery attempt ended in failure when the would-be robber discovered that none of the teller drawers had any money in them. Bank personnel told police that the suspect entered the building and gave tellers a note that contained different denominations of cash. “Give me that money!” he allegedly demanded. That was when the bank tellers gave him a harsh truth: they already stored the day’s money away and there was no cash in their respective drawers. The man climbed onto the counter to see for himself, then fled the scene with no proceeds after confirming there was no cash. Once he was gone, bank personnel called police. The police eventually arrested 54-year-old Edward Dempsey without incident. (
