Pronunciation: byoo-cowsk-e-gramm

Sentence: Trent hoped that picture his college roommate had sent him was in fact a close-up of a sphinx cat kitten, or maybe an out-of-focus shar pei. It was wishful thinking on his behalf, though, as he had been e-bagged in a Bukowskegram.

Etymology: Bukowski - Charles Bukowski, famous alcohol loving author, e - as in electronic/email, gram - from telegram


In hindsight, Bukowskemail would flow a little better, but I like the old fashioned quaintness of gram along with Chuck. - Banky, 2008-01-31: 11:02:00
