Word of the Day 11/22/16 Obfuscate

I didn't think I'd be well enough to post this today because yesterday I got pretty sick (I think it was food poisoning). I'm feeling a little better right now, but still iffy thinking about the prospect of eating (even if my stomach is growling).

Anyway...the word of the day!

Obfuscate (verb)
obfuscate [ob-fuh-skeyt, ob-fuhs-keyt]

verb (used with object), obfuscated, obfuscating.
1. to confuse, bewilder, or stupefy.
2. to make obscure or unclear: to obfuscate a problem with extraneous information.
3. to darken.

See more synonyms on
1. muddle, perplex. 2. cloud.

1. clarify.

Origin: 1525-35; < Late Latin obfuscātus (past participle of obfuscāre to darken), equivalent to Latin ob- ob- + fusc(us) dark + -ātus -ate

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
