Words to Your Mother: Fulsome

Fulsome is where you end up if you shoot a man in Reno. No, wait: That's Folsom.  No, wait again: Folsom's in California.  I'm not sure where you'd end up if you shot a man in Nevada.  Maybe High Desert?

Someone who is fulsome might be a false flatterer.  More generally, something fulsome is offensively excessive or lavish, especially when it comes to praise.  It can also generally mean "abundant or copious", but outside of archaic usage it's hard to avoid the negative connotations.
