    Say hello to Jeevan here.



    Jumentous
    Jumentous: Pronounced /d Š’u ‹  ‹Ë†m ‰-nt ‰â„¢s/: Smelling distinctly like horse urine.
    Why someone saw fit to create a word that specifically identified horse urine when even humans don't have that consideration remains a mystery. It's also a rather tricky word because it sounds positive and glorious. Imagine being told that you are jumentous (but not knowing the meaning). You would walk away confident that you have an admirer of some sort.
