My favorite word–it’s common, but a lot of people I know don’t know what it means:

Misnomer: a term which suggests an interpretation that is known to be untrue.

Also, this one never fails to make me laugh:
aeolist: a pompous, windy bore who pretends to have inspiration.

It’s so dang specific, it’s hilarious hahaha!
