The obscure word of the week is dysphemism

look_it_up_T httpwww.clipartpal.comclipart_pdeducationdictionary_10586.htmlThis week’s really obscure English word is dysphemism.

This is when a derogatory word has been obviously used instead of a pleasant one in a sentence.

Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.
