I love the paradoxes of  the English language.  Where else could you find hot-dogs that are cold or dark room that is lit. Let’s face it : women can have morning sickness at night and nightmares can take place in broad daylight. The reason that this is still logical is that these are compound words and thus the definition is not the same as just the addition of the individual words.
Here several compound words used in English to describe the personalities or attributes of someone or something. Below each word please write what you think they mean. I know that it is unlikely that you have ever seen these words used together but their combination may help you discern their meaning. If not I expect your definitions to be amusing.
