2. my funny word is ..............
Kumquat

Kumquats, also called kinkan, are the fruits that are produced from small evergreen trees that grow to a height of approximately 10 feet. These trees are also known as kumquats. Although kumquat trees are native to, and prevalent in, Asia -- specifically in China and Indochina -- they are also cultivated in Japan and in the United States, in warmer states such as California and Florida. Although many kumquat trees are grown for their sweet, edible fruits, they are also used as ornamental plants because of their attractive, shiny leaves and delicate white flowers that bloom in the summer. Additionally, cut branches of the kumquat tree are used in certain regions as Christmas decorations. Because of the diversity of their use, kumquat trees are becoming popular to grow at home.

31. My favorite silly word is "fuddle".
As in "fuddling" around. WTF is that supposed to mean?

Fuddle. Fuddle. Fuddle.

Can it be posibble to "Fuddle" your life away? If so, what exactly have you done to your life?

Does one "fuddle in a puddle"? Or "fiddle in a piddle"? Or can one "piddle on a fiddle" and "puddle on a fuddle"? Or even "piddle on a fuddle" and "puddle on a fiddle"?

39. Mine isn't a word, but a series of words.
"Me cago en su puta madre". God, I love that expression. I rolls off the tongue so easily. I use it a lot at work because no one here speaks Spanish and doesn't understand what I'm saying.
