Of the words listed below, one is "odd man out." This has

To be fair to the above, (or below as the case may be when this comment posts), many scholars are harshly divided on this point. Ancient tablets existing around this time written by the late and great Roy Blute Sr. have stated enigmatically:
"Ow, my poor tuckus. Must go check Agsa."
Leading many to believe that "Agsa" was at least Ernie's proctologist. However, most archaelogists dismiss this account and believe "Agsa" was the name of one of Ernie's camels who Roy slaughtered, and the above statement was an attempt at mischievous, retaliatory humor. Quotes Dr. Von Holden, professor emeritus at Harvard University, "Proctologist? Why that's preposterous! Those people barely used bones to dig at that time. I mean they used the leaves of palm trees to play poker, for goodness sake! Proctology?... hhmmpph! Agsa was a camel! A camel!..."
