Festibuzz

artr

Created by: artr

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)

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sher ree kris mast

Sentence: Nick had already been to five other homes on the block for his annual walkabout on Christmas Eve. Sampling nibblies and good cheer, by house #6, The Bailey's, he was plastered. Since he only did this at Yuletime, he arrived sherrychristmased. Luckily, the Bailey's knew him well enough to lay him out on the spare bed until either Christmas, sobriety or alcoholic poisoning happened. It would not be the first time that the Bailey children would think that Nick, in his Santa suit, was the real thing...in fact he was often the topic of the next show and tell...
