Inflatoad

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: in-FLAY-toed (inflatoading, inflatoaded, inflatoady)

Sentence: Generica became insufferable after receiving her promotion to flunky (second class)...She would INFLATOAD every sentence she uttered, making her simple thoughts swell like the bloated carcass of a dead corporate amphibian. Although her INFLATOADING endeared her to the sniveling rat-faced deviant administrators who practiced reverse sexism while touting the wonders of enlightened cultural diversity, everyone had to agree that Generica had become an INFLATOADY of the worst kind...the kind we all know.

Etymology: INFLATe+tOAD=INFLATOAD.....INFLATE:to swell or distend with air or gas, to puff up, to expand or increase abnormally or imprudently; Middle English, from Latin inflatus, past participle of inflare, from in- + flare to blow .....TOAD, TOADY: a contemptible person or thing, one who flatters in the hope of gaining favors; by shortening & alteration from toadeater- Middle English tode, from Old English tāde, tādige.

Uberloquitor

Created by: XMbIPb

Pronunciation: /ü-bər-lo-kwi-tor/

Sentence: I can’t even tell you what George and I drank over the weekend. Nor how much of it we drank. Neither remembers. All I can say is that Master George – and there’s no other way I can call him from now on – is a bloody genius! Despite a massive hangover and absolute lack of preparation, he managed to UBERLOQUITATE the entire board meeting into extending our contract for two (count’em – t-w-o) more years! I mean I was sitting there with my head feeling like a cracked egg shell, while Master George managed to pull a presentation full of “gestalt,” “zeitgeist,” “sine qua non,” “parallax,” and at least a dozen words all of which had at least one vowel with an umlaut. I love that guy!

Etymology: uberloquitor (n.), uberloquacious (adj.), uberloquitate (v.) ----- UBER- (fr. Germ.): over, beyond. [Recently replaced other such superlative prefixes as “super-“ and “ultra-“ (see: “ubergeek,” “uberhack,” “ubercool”)] LOQUI – (fr. Latin) to speak.

Inflatulate

Created by: Jamagra

Pronunciation: in/flach/u/late

Sentence: Joe dithered outside the bathroom door. The access instructions distributed at the 3 hour "securitized lavatory entrance system" meeting had seemed very clear at the time: choose #1 or choose #2. But, Joe now wondered, what about an employee requiring #1 AND #2? Had there been a third option? Why, oh why, had he not paid more attention to the inflatulated memo??? Joe shuffled off to find an HR rep who could help him with this rather pressing problem.

Etymology: inflate + flatulate
