Funny Sounding Words

Here's my favorite "funny sounding word":

Pumpernickel

The best is the derivation of the word -- see below!

From Mirriam-Websters Online (m-w.com):

Main Entry: pumˇperˇnickˇel
Pronunciation: 'p&m-p&r-"ni-k&l
Function: noun
Etymology: German, from pumpern to break wind + Nickel goblin; from its reputed indigestibility
: a dark coarse sourdough bread made of unbolted rye flour


So does that mean pumpernickel is German for goblin farts?!

Just a funny little word I think... kinda pig-latinish, but not... kinda loses all meaning when you keep saying it over and over and over...

Kerfuffle

I always get bothered by the word "receptacle" but I don't think it's funny.
