Brit' Word of the Day....

Today's BWOTD is a fun one:

"I like him but he really is a bit of a nincompoop!"

'Nincompoop' = Idiot

This is something I have even read in historical books of the Middle Ages, so I believe this is a very old English word.

How interesting. This is a word that my dad used to use ALL the time, and he was an Okie!

And I NEVER hear it here!! Could it be one of those "regional" UK words, I wonder?
