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.

Pronunciation: Zingerflipper: Zing-her-flip-her

Sentence: Oh, no! Blasted zingerflipper sent that email out half written!

Etymology: A zinger commonly refers to a mistake. Flipper is a combination of flip and finger to mean a slip of the finger. Thus zingerflipper means sending an email with mistakes or mistakenly ... by a mistaken flip of the finger!

Pronunciation: in/ter/fret

Sentence: Having spotted Tiffany's email on Loretta's Blackberry while she got up to get her Latte, Josh made a point to memorize it. Tiffany was the girl of his dreams, though to her he didn't exist. Later that night while on the computer, just to see what it felt like, he put in her email addy and began typing as if they had just spent the most passionate evening together. He got so into it that when done, instead of hitting the X to delete, he hit SEND out of habit! He went into instant interfret, began sweating profusely and decided he would claim it was just an assignment due in his psychology class, and thank Tiffany for helping him with his grade. Her "reaction of disgust" "was just the A" he was "looking for," he said in response to her disgusted email.

Etymology: internet + fret

zxvasdf Coincidentally, as he was in the throes of his interfret, Tiffany entered the coffee shop, engaged with her Blackberry. Josh's seat became a puddle of sweat. She took him by the arm and walked to the back of the shop, where the restrooms were located, and for the next five minutes strange sounds emanated from that region. - zxvasdf, 2008-10-29: 09:10:00
