Word of the Day: BUFFLE-BRAINED

from buffle (buffalo; a fool) + brained (having a brain of the specific kind)

“…An’ there we would swing, an’ hang there we must,
Till the hoodoo was busted. Eternally cussed,
So he said, was the buffle-brained feller that dared
To touch the witch-web that was holding us snared

From: Up in Maine:
Stories of Yankee Life Told in Verse
– Holman Day, 1900
