Cellulocating

Sentence: "Hey Mike!" "Shutup, I'm cellulocating and it's on vibrate."

Etymology: Cellular + Locating

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

I think I should have said Self-cellulocating. Because regular cellulocating would happen when you get someone else to call your phone for you. - dubld, 2007-11-09: 09:32:00

Clutterring

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: klətərring

Sentence: Charley is quite poor at keeping track of things. He never sets things down in the same place twice. Things end up in the strangest places. He is still trying to figure out how one of his socks ended up in a mayonnaise jar in the fridge, but that*s a different story. His current challenge is to not loose his company-issued Blackberry. He has tried several unique techniques. First there was the gecko location which involved rubber-banding the phone to his pet lizard. FAIL! Mr. Green Britches just shed a tail and went off to sell insurance. Then he tried the string theory. He tied a string around his finger and one around the phone with the thought that like things attract. FAIL! He attached a cookie with a thought that somehow his computer would help him. FAIL! Following the ants only worked for a short time. Finally he has a method that works, clutterring. He bought a tiny, cheap cell that he keeps on a cord around his neck and calls the Blackberry when he needs it. If it is dark, the light on the phone acts like one of those **as seen on TV** specials, the Clapper.(clapperring)

Etymology: clutter (a collection of things lying about in an untidy mass) + ring (of a telephone; produce a series of resonant or vibrating sounds to signal an incoming call)
