Lexiconography: Self-defecating.

The other day after a long leisurely stroll through the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for my wife’s birthday, she went on to describe a colleague’s manner as “self-defecating.”

Sure, I had a guffaw at my poor lady’s expense, but since I have started to think that it is almost a superior description of the ability to make fun of one’s self with a slightly more sadist slant. Because what’s funnier then shitting on yourself? Hmm, hmm, hmm. Well old ladies falling down stairs are funny as well, but that’s not nearly as word savvy.

So enjoy world: I give you “self defecating” humor.
