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!

Sentence: Just as Brian accidentally hit the 'send' hotkey on an e-mail addressed to his entire department, he realized that he'd misspelled the name of his boss, Mr. Schmit, leaving out a couple of letters — a most unfortunate typo — and felt that gut-sinking feeling of bewailmail. He was afraid he'd just made an unemployedian slip.

Etymology: bewail - to cry over; lament (from Middle English, biwailen - "become tormented") + [e]mail - correspondence (Old High German, malaha - "wallet, bag")

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.
