I love apple pie liquorice candy canes soufflé I love. Marshmallow dessert tiramisu pie I love I love I love. Marzipan marzipan I love biscuit powder. Halvah macaroon cake powder powder brownie.
That’s what seems to be happening with Schitt’s Creek, a Canadian comedy that recently aired its final season. For Vocabbett readers, though, this show offers more than just some laughs…
I’ll be honest. When I first saw the show, I was a little confused by her character. I couldn’t figure out what her accent was supposed to be, among other things, but now I adore her.

I dive more into a few of the words in the video — and how you can remember them! — in episode 45 of the Vocabbett podcast.
Pettifogging? Unasinous? Bombilate? Are these even words?
Well…kind of…but even if you can’t find them all in the dictionary, most have a legitimate origin somewhere, check out etymologically, and are downright amazing, so let’s just say yes!
You can listen to that episode below, or on your favorite podcast player!????
