Ecringe

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: EEEE-cringe.....(E-cringed, EEK-cringe)

Sentence: FastEddie recoiled in horror when he hastily hit the ENTER key instead of the BACKSPACE, and sent out a passionate love note to the Dean of Humanities instead of his beloved english professor. FastEddie could only E-CRINGE at his witless error and bang his head on the touchpad. He recouldn't e-cant,e-tract, e-verse or even e-pent now. His comments about his professor's crimson garter belt were surging through the information highway, and he could only e-coil at his own stupidity. FastEddie E-CRINGED yet again when he realized that a virus had forwarded it everyone in his address book, too. A POX upon Microsoft Outlook and the devils who spawned it!

Etymology: E(as in e-mail)+CRINGE=E-CRINGE.....cringe: to draw in or contract one's muscles involuntarily (as from cold, pain or humiliation),to shrink in fear ; Middle English crengen; akin to Old English cringan to yield, Middle High German krank weak.
