Calledsweat

petaj

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: cawld-swet

Sentence: Madeleine broke out in a calledsweat every time her phone dropped out during a phone call. It started with a ringing in her ears, followed by strange mutterings about how could anyone be dialling when they are pressing buttons and there is no dial in sight. But the most dramatic effect of her calledsweat was the profuse secretion of perspiration from her ears.

Etymology: call + cold sweat

Blackedoutberry

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: blakd owt berree

Sentence: SONYa Ericsson went into Blackedoutberry mode, when her communicator failed to connect with the Mother ship. In her Qwest for an I-mate, she had gotten out of the Rover, and in one Cingular move had stepped on something Sharp, fell on her Acer, got a Gigabyte on her Vertu and did a Handspring back onto her Mitsubishi spacecraft, just before she ran out of O2. Over the Verizon, she spied a Cricket on a Palm and Samsung the praises of a Nokia No Kiss, NoTel policy before she Motorola'd back to Earth. When she landed safely in the Pacific, all the Siemens gave her a Boost Mobile, so she is now no longer a Virgin Mobile. Wit-DaeWoo! Wit-Daewoo!

Etymology: Blackberry ( a wireless handheld device which supports push email, web browsing, internet faxing, instant messaging, text messaging and other communication services.) & Blacked Out (a momentary loss of consciousness ;the failure of electric power for a general region;darkness resulting from the extinction of lights (as in a city invisible to enemy aircraft);a suspension of radio or tv broadcasting ;partial or total loss of memory)
