    galoot

    Words that combine derision and affection are rare and ought to be taken advantage of. This word lets you make fun of a tall, gangly, clumsy guy for being tall, gangly, and clumsy, but conveys as well the linguistic equivalent of a chuck under the chin. Galoot is also less familiar (and funnier sounding) than the equivalent lug, and unlike lug, has only one meaning.
    David Auburn
