#FormTenFun: “He seeks to be stupid a great seeking to be stupid”

يستعبط استعباط رهيب

yasta3bat isti3bat raheeb

aka, something to the effect of: “He really tried to pull the wool over our eyes”

Potent combination of my favorite verb form, Form IX, and most ridiculous grammar structure, المفعول المطلق.

[Yasta3bat is a great word that usually means someone is playing dumb. A synonym would be يستهبل and the roots of these verbs, عبيط and اهبل, mean stupid/idiot.]
