Mental health break




At YouTube: Bulbous Bouffant.

Link via Joel Shaver's comment on Mark Liberman's post on "words that are fun to say out loud, and when you say them over and over, they get to sound even funnier." Liberman also asked his audience for a possible "word or phrase for this kind of irrational pleasure associated with repeated performance of a particular word," and his commenters respond with some fabulous words: euphornia, lexury and glossalalia.

Awesome.
