Muppet fans: Just something that’s been bugging me through the years. In the original Muppet Movie, when Kermit and Fozzie meet Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, Dr. Teeth says something like “this is problem upon which we shall probosculate upon”. Is the word “probosculate” used just to sound impressive (when it is not a word according to m-w.com), or is he supposed to be confusing some other word?
FYI: Googling around, I found a list of Muppet quotes where the word in question was spelled as such, but in quotes…as if to be a pun or an intentional misspelling. But, what word was meant to fit here?
