Glibanterosis

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: glib-ANT-er-OH-sis

Sentence: After polishing off a magnum of Serbian Plum Brandy, the JOCK-ular comments spewing forth from the ancient jargonauts on the sports channel seemed to lack a certain...clarity. Through judicious use of the MUTE button, we were able to avoid much of the GLIBANTEROSIS which accompanied the pre-game pseudo-shows. It was probably the hogshead of mead we consumed while waiting for the forty-pound bioengineered hybrid turkey to glaze over, but our guest from Slovakia found the narratives much less confusing than I did.

Etymology: GLIb+BANTER+OSIS=GLIBANTEROSIS.........GLIB:marked by ease and informality, nonchalant,showing little forethought or preparation,lacking depth and substance,marked by ease and fluency in speaking or writing often to the point of being insincere or deceitful;probably modification of Low German glibberig slippery.....BANTER:to speak to or address in a witty and teasing manner,to speak playfully or wittily;origin unknown.....-OSIS:suffix impying an affliction.
