Is it just me or does defecianado not sound quite like a connoisseur of defacating?

Sorry for creating that image if no one else thought of it : (

Alternative terms: Failure-fiend, catastrophologist, loss gourmand, botch-head.

@ Ben
I, too, immediately had the same thought about 'defecianado'.

Perhaps it is the way we were brought up?

"Is it just me or does defecianado not sound quite like a connoisseur of defacating?"

Nope, not just you. It's the first thing that popped into my head.

RE: "That's a good point", note the subtle note of victory. Rick doesn't so much win as occasionally moderate his precipitous plunge into the abyss.

BTW "catastrophologist" - I will be stealing that for my own aggrandisement.

@Ben: That was exactly the first thing that popped into my mind!

October 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGolden Ghost

A losie, perhaps?

defecianado looks too much like defecateonado, you get my drift...

Ever since I got this via my email subscription I have been wanting to congratulate you on "defecianado." Don't listen to those critical comments miscontruing your brilliance! (I think the word for them might be simply "fecianado.") I love being present for the creating of fun new words.

Also, "catastrophologist" is a good one, nonsensicles!

I read the first line in panel 3 and thought it said "wife" instead of "life." That added a whole different layer of meaning.

@Ben, bionelly, Golden:

Unfortunately, this talk of defecating has taken your use of the word "popped" and replaced it with "pooped" every time I read it now. Thank you.

October 26, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteromegamike

Hmm. Defecianado still sound feces related to me since this strip's original run.

October 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKevin

Popped into your mind or Pooped?

October 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBobster0

I think it depends on whether the 'c' in 'defecianado' is hard or soft.

October 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRaketemensch

@Ben Yes, it's the first thing that pooped into my head too...

October 26, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterchoopy

Maybe an alternate spelling? "Deficianado" maybe? Hm, no, that sounds like a fan of deficits. Defeatophile? Ugh. I better leave the jokes ot the professional.

I still get a laugh out of "BETTER defeat."

October 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDave H

He has self-defecating humor.

October 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTom

Rick and I are kindred spirits here.

October 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJeanette

Now, this is one of your finest works imo, panel 1 and 3 get me everytime.

October 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAmarquez

I'm smiling. really, really, hard.

October 28, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterduck

Maybe "defetianado" would be a good alternate. Make use of English's ridiculous "-ti-vowel" rules.
