Pronunciation: Master-is-card-ing

Sentence: Jimmy was full of excitement about Christmas and had no care for money saving, so set out masteriscarding like mad.

Etymology: Mastercard+is, which shows the master is the card (master/is/card), which is like being a zombie, controlled by the credit card. 'Is' also makes the master the credit card owner, going crazy and carding (carding is using a credit card master/is/carding).
