Thursday word of the day : Bumptious

Some words mean exactly like they sound. I enjoy the silliness of this one and that it is difficult to take seriously when you say it.

\BUMP-shuhs\, adjective:
Crudely, presumptuously, or loudly self-assertive.

Bumptious is perhaps a blend of bump and presumptuous.
