unusually weird words

I saw a word the other day, it seemed strange to me. I can't remember the word now but I looked it up then. I found it listed in Wiktionary word of the day. After looking at a few of the other words I decided to make this little project. I looked up a word from A-Z and the meaning. It was just something that seemed fun and I decided to share. Most of these word's you wouldn't hear or use. However I did find a few I have heard. And some I really thought I made up myself. I think it quite amusing the funny things we hear, see or say we later read on the internet.
