words that begin with in-: incorrigible

Hi there! Today I have a rather humorously used word:

INCORRIGIBLE
Source: http://www.zazzle.co.uk

This word refers to a person who seems to be unreformable, hopelessly bad and not very likely to change. In Polish we might say such a person is niereformowalny, niepoprawny. This is how you pronounce the word incorrigible.


A few examples from the Internet:
  • Brown may have his grumpy, Granita moments, but as a strategist he is an incorrigible optimist.
  • Ashis Nandy is an incorrigible contrarian.
  • The man is an incorrigible liar,” Lesniak said.
  • The latter is an incorrigible offender, who had previously been...
  • The one-time car mechanic from Malaga is an incorrigible rogue, given to conducting his press...      

My question to you:
Do you know any incorrigible person around you? Tell us about him/her.
