Communenebreation

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kom myun ee nee bree ayshun

Sentence: Bud Nonweiser had a deadline for 6 am and a love of hops in their liquid form. He had already written many draftbeerdrafts of his report for work, but the more he drank, the worse his editing and decision making skills became. After a brief doze, face imprinted with his keyboard, he decided that his current drafts (both the beer and the report) were tasty and refreshing. His boss, Pete Totaller, must have understood that a report e-mailed off at 4:20 am, making no sense and in an alternate form of English must be a form of communenebreation. He decided quickly that this Bud's not for you and e-mailed him back his severance notice.

Etymology: Communication (transfer thoughts or feelings) & Inebreation (stupefied or excited by a chemical substance (especially alcohol) & en-e-breation (electronically intoxicated)

After all your liquor-name inspired creations, it was very hard to resist the temptation of choosing highballEng! - silveryaspen, 2008-01-31: 12:19:00

> a play on Hi-de-ho-ho, a slangy greeting. Amusing word but... where are you from that people say that? :] - Tigger, 2008-02-01: 00:49:00

Geerbloggle

petaj

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: gear-blog-ul

Sentence: Bella cursed inwardly when she read back the geerbloggle she posted at 2.00am and looked at the photographs from her night out. Just which one of these ugly mugs had she described as a "golden Adonis" on her blog? They were all hideous!

Etymology: beer goggle (perception that things are much better than they are - like rose-coloured glasses, but brought on by too much beer) + blog + it's mixed up as though the interlocutor has had too many drinks

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Could geerbloggle also be a Spoonerism of sorts on your words of beer, blog, goggle ... and maybe even the end of the word bottle as in beer bottle? I like it. Very creative ... and we don't see very many spoonerisms here. You might just have inspired more! - silveryaspen, 2008-11-24: 16:37:00

I think I remember doing something like that myself. - Mustang, 2008-11-24: 23:36:00

metrohumanx Very clever. Hooray! - metrohumanx, 2008-11-25: 10:48:00

Sloshoeuvre

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: slosh-OO-vre.....(akin to slosh over)

Sentence: Jarhead didn't have a drinking problem. Like so many unfortunates, he simply "sucked at life". A prolific writer as well as an olympic-class drinker, all his talents seemed to merge one tragic evening as his creative thoughts began to SLOSHOEUVRE. The meniscus of his mind began to decant delerious declarations which he hastily posted to...who knows where? Jarhead began to communiquart with everyone who had ever wronged him just before he puked into his keyboard. His writings had a certain claret-y which was apparent only from his side of the bacchanalian veil which slowly descended as the evening wore on. After several bottles of "Old Verbotomy" (aged at least a week), he began typing in some indecipherable code, which was probably for the best, because his enraged friends broke down the door and used a handtruck to get him into detox just before his liver failed. Now he admits he's powerless over alcohol, and Jarhead is the most popular speaker at the 12 Step House, next to the train tracks in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Etymology: SLOSH+OEUVRE=SLOSHOEUVRE.....SLOSH:The tendency of a liquid to move back and forth, often in a nauseating manner;blend of slop and slush (c.1814).....OEUVRE:a substantial body of work constituting the lifework of a writer, an artist, or a poet often composed while inebriated;French Ĺ“uvre, literally, work, from Old French ovre.

If you are bilingual, when you sloshoeuvre your emails, are they in E-nglish/French too? Nice combo and etymology. - silveryaspen, 2008-11-24: 16:23:00

metrohumanx Thanks, S.A. That was my first attempt at incorporating a French word....Pretentious? Moi?.... Wooly Bully-wooly Bully-Wooly Bully! :) - metrohumanx, 2008-11-24: 16:32:00

metrohumanx I'm not bilingual, but I AM tripolar. - metrohumanx, 2008-11-24: 16:33:00

metrohumanx Christmas is coming. I buy all my gifts at Goblertoys. http://goblertoys.com/ - metrohumanx, 2008-11-24: 16:35:00
