  1. Heeeey! I've actually heard of this one. How about that. Fusty sounds a lot like musty, interestingly enough, and means about the same thing (at least the first definition). :)

    1. I know this word isn't as unusual as most of my Whimsical Words, but I love it. I attempted to post an example that bridged both definitions - not sure if I succeeded. ^_^
