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).
