Oxford sent me the word for today: rannygazoo. It means, they say, "Nonsense, deception; foolishness, fuss, exaggeration; (also) an instance of this; a prank, a trick." I guess it shounds like that kind of word. It lists it as British and US usage, and gives an example from a Canadian newspaper.

But my question is: Has anyone ever heard or seen this word used?

I certainly haven't. But I rather like it - it's sounds like what it is.
