metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: AW-DEE-OH-chaff

Sentence: In the hallway outside the library, Babs was listening to her personal audio device. Judging by the AUDIOCHAFF which slopped over, the sound levels inside her earbuds must have been deafening. The AUDIOCHAFF bore no resemblance to music, and even at a distance was more akin to the background radiation from outer space often heard on poorly tuned shortwave radios.

Etymology: AUDIO+CHAFF=AUDIOCHAFF.....AUDIO: of or relating to acoustic, mechanical, or electrical frequencies corresponding to normally audible sound waves; of, relating to, or utilizing recorded sound.....CHAFF: something comparatively worthless; Middle English chaf, from Old English ceaf; akin to Old High German cheva husk.
