cockamamie Anything cockamamie is ridiculous and far-fetched. A cockamamie plan is not likely to work. This is a silly-sounding word for things that are silly, ludicrous, foolish, and impractical. Faking your own kidnapping to get out of a math test is a cockamamie plan. Wearing a fake mustache everywhere for no reason is cockamamie. Lots of comedies…
