Wednesday Word: pulchritudinous

pulchritudinous: [puhl-kri-tood-n-uh s] or [puhl-kri-tyood-n-uh s]

adjective: Beautiful.

Origin: 1877, American English, from the noun pulchritude (from Latin pulchritudino "beauty," genitive pulchritudinis)

This word really doesn't look to me like it should mean beautiful.  X-D
