Cellurabot

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: cell-u-rab-bot

Sentence: Mary was so fanatical about her blackberry that her friends were becoming concerned that it was controlling her. They couldn't understand how a grown woman could be so gaga for a gadget. Undoubtedly, she was becoming a cellurabot, unable to think or speak without gazing at the screen. One day a coworker saw her texting furiously. "What are you doing?" she asked. "I'm texting you a question," Mary replied. Her friend grabbed the phone away from her and shouted, "Cellurabot, texts are for kids."

Etymology: (from an old cereal commercial that featured a cartoon rabbit: "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids") cellular: cell phone/cell network + rabid: fanatical, extreme + bot: (short for robot) an infected computer that becomes a zombie under the control of a master computer

Sentence: Although not as tech-savvy as most, George had gotten an iPad for his birthday and was totally hooked on it. He had become ipaddicted to the little machine.

For George's benefit, one hopes they make a new version soon that can allow George to marry and have kids online. We doubt George's mother would approve...she of the black & white tv; Beta tapes and rotary phone...
