Words weird and wonderful

I'm not sure that this list of facts and trivia about English and specific English words necessarily make the language "downright bizarre", but they're worth a look all the same. "Hobidy-boobies" sound rather less threatening than scarecrows, while "sermocination", "percontation" and "gowpen" are among the words it's useful to know actually exist. OK then, back to the quomodocunquizing for trinkgeld...
