Bozofix

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: BOW-zoe-ficks

Sentence: Rosco could BOZOFIX anything- or so he firmly believed. After Wanda had trapped a mouse, Rosco insisted that the humane thing to do was to put it "out of it's misery". While trying to deliver the Coup De Grace with a 12 pound sledgehammer, Rosco demolished Wanda's new plasmoid HDTV. The mouse struggled free and bred successfully for many years, while Rosco continued to inflict his campaign of assertive helpfulness on unsuspecting friends until he had no more. After a few flagons of cheap suds, Rosco noticed that the water was running constantly in Dave's bathroom. Lifting the heavy lid from the tank, Rosco dropped it on the bowl, cracking it in half and unleashing a torrent of water and insults. Thanks to Rosco's BOZOFIX, Dave had to run a gauntlet of condemnation from his aged parents every time he went downstairs to use "the facilities".

Etymology: BOZO+FIX=BOZOFIX.....BOZO:a foolish or incompetent person,a modernistic clown-plural bozos; origin unknown, probably derived from Spanish "bozotros" to err or amuse.....FIX:to make firm, stable, or stationary, to repair, mend or cure,to give a permanent or final form to, to get even with, to influence the actions, outcome, or effect of by improper methods; Middle English, from Latin fixus, past participle of figere to fasten; akin to Lithuanian dygti to sprout, break through.
