Pronunciation: festəbəz

Sentence: Lew was nervous about going to his first office ”Holiday” party. He had only had this job for two weeks and hardly knew anybody. All that changed when he arrived sporting an elf costume and a raging festibuzz. The outfit might have been forgiven, the pickling perhaps but kissing Mr. Bossypants full on the lips, maybe not. Strangely when he arrived for work on Monday Lew’s security badge didn’t seem to work on the entry door and a box with his personal stuff was sitting on the curb.

Etymology: festival (an annual celebration) + buzz (intoxication)

Pronunciation: SOO-DOE-sa-lubri-cated

Sentence: Alfie's drinking philosophy could be stated quite simply: pound down a few shots before attending any social event where sparking wit might be called for. Alfie believed in getting PSEUDOSALUBRICATED...obtaining a "healthy buzz" before showcasing his karaoke skills and performing handstands on the bar. Although he was known to occasionally eat the label from a wine bottle, Alfie stubbornly refused to admit that a person could PSEUDOSALUBRICATE himself too much. Always entertaining, he often left the premises strapped to a hand truck.

Etymology: PSEUDO+SALUBrious+lubRICATED= PSEUDOSALUBRICATED.....PSEUDO:being apparently rather than actually as stated, false, fake;Middle English, from Late Latin pseudo.....SALUBRIOUS:favorable to or promoting health or well-being, especially in a social setting;Latin salubris; akin to salvus safe, healthy.....LUBRICATED:to make smooth or slippery, to imbibe just enough alcohol to make something bearable;Latin lubricatus, past participle of lubricare, from lubricus slippery.

Pronunciation: saynt - nipped

Sentence: Joshua got saintnipped this near before arriving at his family Christmas gathering. Uncle Clyde's 20 minute monologue about his illustrious post office career didn't bother him this time, nor did Aunt Sara's endless questions about when he was going to bring home a nice Presbyterian girl to meet the family. Actually, all of these things started to seem amusing to Joshua for a change.

Etymology: This word combines Jolly Old Saint Nick (or Santa Claus) with the past tense of Nip (a small drink of liquor).
