Beauty of language

In the last few days, I have been reacquainted with several choice words and expressions in the English language, thanks to the pomposity of the legal minds making their cases in the British High Court. It wouldn't have happened if not for the high profile case of the sale of a little football club -- sorry, I meant the Liverpool Football Club -- and the threat of the club plunging into administration. Can you see what we are missing from not learning the English language well?

extraordinary events
most outrageous abuse of process 
grossly inappropirate
scurrilous allegations 
epic swindle 
grand conspiracy 
wild and scurrilous 
absolute poppycock 
abusive, vexatious and oppressive 
grotesque parody 
sitting and giggling

Do you mind explaining the meaning of each word? Too deep for me.
