Honkarass

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: honk r a--

Sentence: Bell and Bert held the night shift at the local all-night gym. Carpooling in Bert’s old honkda, they had a tight routine. Every evening at 9:50, Bert felt justified in honkarassing Bell’s neighboors for a few minutes. After all, it was the neighboors’ autumnal leaf blowing that shook his chick out of bed early afternoon, nearly two months every year! Tonight Bert’s honkarangue lasted longer than usual. Bell finally emerged from her apartment, removing her earplugs: “Hey, let me give you a little peeptalk before our shift”.

Etymology: From: honk, harass and "a--"!
