Testostemonium

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: tes-toss-teh-moan-i-um

Sentence: Every spring young dudes are gripped by the pangs of testostemonium, exhibited by driving 50 mph in a school zone, blaring teenage angst music until their speakers blow up, and acting out "Rebel Without a Cause." They do this because testostemonium convinces them that this attention seeking behavior actually impresses potential mates. In reality this behavior does nothing to increase their desirability to the opposite sex and actually has the counter effect of impressing other single males who want to sit in front of a television and drink beer.

Etymology: testosterone: male sex hormone responsible for male characteristics + pandemonium: very noisy place; a wild, chaotic, noisy uproar; the abode of demons
