Sentence: Flo was a volunteer at the animal shelter and a professional dog walker. Although her new pit bull puppy looked like a naked mole rat, she was fond of showing it off in public. Her friends humored her until she was inexplicably siezed by MORTIFIDORAPTUS and began cooing and speaking in slobbering tongues to the clearly embarrased doglet. Everyone had to look away and stifle snickers. Others just walked away, while some cast aspersions at her descent into irritating anthropomorphism. Imploring her to stop had no effect - the gibberish just intensified into a pungent mishmash of ootsycutesyisms. Flo just tossed her head back indignantly and was last seen heading haughtily towards a hydrant, MORTIFIDORAPPING all the way.

Etymology: MORTIFIED:humiliated + FIDO: legendary generic verbotomistic canine-american of yore + RAPTUS: a state of being carried away by overwhelming emotion = MORTIFIDORAPTUS............... Variations: [ mortifidorapture, mortifidoraptism, mortifidorapmusic, mortifidoraptologist ] yadda yadda yadda

Toronto’s venerable “Mop & Pail” as the paper is affectionately known, is what led me to Verbotomy on Friday. My first instinct was to submit “Doggerel” then realized that it was in no way sufficiently twisted to survive! I’m looking forward to a lotta laffs with this!

Dang, I just came up with a much better word, and it's too late for me to enter it: gerbilish!
