Brazen

brazen \BREY-zuhn\, adjective:

1. Shameless or impudent.
2. Made of brass.

Brazen has its source in an Old English form of the same word, meaning “of brass.” When the Z was introduced to the English alphabet, meaning and spelling seemed to have shifted.

Looking at Jeremy Fischer, one would never guess that he had a brazen streak in him. He is a sparse young man, in his early twenties. He mostly wears monochrome colours.

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind once his latest art piece is revealed. It is a ten-feet woman-gorilla hybrid statue, with grotesquely large breasts and walnut-shaped nipples.
