Doofus looks right, IMHO. I vote for that one! While we're on this topic, I had an occasion to attempt to spell diffugeldy and found myself trying to spell a word I'd heard often and knew full well its definition, but previously had never tried to spell it! Has anyone else on the list heard this term which refers to messed up, snafu'd, and so on, but with a note of whimsy. "That's all diffugeldy" or "It's all diffugeldy" leo_horishny[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
