Meaning: not just askew but somehow subversively askew

I adore this word: staggeringly, jubilantly, and breathlessly adore this word. I take pleasure in the way it looks, the way it sounds, and especially in the way it just sits there, sounding naughty. Like it was suppose to be a dirty word, but it got side-tracked.

And then for it to mean ‘askew”, one of the most under-used words in our culture, makes me gleeful, and it’s not just askew, but subversively askew,

If I had a Roller Derby name it would be Subversively Askew, or Book Job.
