OK. Its definitely not nice to make fun of people. But, if one is ever going to do it, why not use fun words while doing it? Here are some of my favorites and what how the Oxford English Dictionary defines them when they are used to describe a person:
Flibbertigibbet: A frivolous, flighty, or excessively talkative person.
Harum-scarum: A reckless, impetuous person.
Mollycoddle: An ineffectual man or boy
Namby-pamby: A weak or ineffectual person.
Ragamuffin: A person, typically a child, in ragged, dirty clothes.
Scalawag: A person, typically a child, who behaves badly but in an amusingly mischievous rather than harmful way; a rascal.
