Rebutthead

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /ri-BUHT-hed/

Sentence: Lyle was such a rebutthead that he started an argument with the mugger who was trying to rob him, telling him that he wasn't holding the gun correctly. At first Lyle tried to demonstrate with his empty hands but the criminal was incompetent, and Lyle told him so. Frustrated, he reached for the gun to show the mugger again. Lyle is finally out of Intensive Care and recuperating nicely, although he's driving the doctors and nurses crazy.

Etymology: Rebut - to refute by evidence or argument (from Old French, rebuter "to thrust back") + Butthead - a stupid or inept person (slang: buttheads often "butt heads" with other people, but the 'anal' connotation is clear. Also, Beavis' buddy)

Autofault

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: aw - toe - fawlt

Sentence: Jim was an autofault specialist. No matter what anyone said, he would contradict or correct the statement. Moreover, he had something negative to say about everyone. I know he would really criticize this sentence since it is not clever and contains no interesting story. He is already critizing my lack of originality in illustrating my Verbotomy word today. I will wait for his comments below and just try to ignore them.

Etymology: Automatic (to operate independently of thought control (involuntary), Acting or done as if by machine; mechanical) + Fault (the quality of being inadequate or falling short of perfection)
