LUB-er-wort -- (n.) A lethargic, stupid, fuzzy-minded person.

Unfortunately for the world, Lubberworts are quite common; the term "lubberwort," however, is not and as such, deserves a definite comeback. Lubberwort was a 16th century imaginary plant said to inspire sluggish stupidity. Wordeby's is still investigating the deeper roots of this word, but for now, use it at will in lieu of the other choice words one often seeks to describe bureaucracy, sour-smelling barflies, or all of Congress. And more importantly, avoid being one at all costs.
