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 œuvre, literally, work, from Old French ovre.

Gincommunicado

Created by: rombus

Pronunciation: jin - com - meoon - ick - cod - oh

Sentence: Sheila had issues again today. Now on her seventh gin and tonic, she made the mistake of emailing everyone she was angry at or felt had in some way slighted her during the past ten years. She was totally gincommunicado for several hours until she fell asleep at her keyboard. Everytime this happened she would awaken and see the evidence of her rampage as her inbox filled with confused and angry emails, mostly from people she hadn't seen in years. Thankfully, the number of people who answered her was dwindling....but she really bemoaned the fact that she had few friends left.

Etymology: Gin (a type of strong liquor flavored with juniper berries) plus incommunicado which means a state or condition in which one is unable or unwilling to communicate.
