Butterflinger

Created by: ErWenn

Pronunciation: /ˈbʌdɚˌflɪŋgɚ/

Sentence: I am not really a butterflinger; it's just that I first accidentally dropped an important file into the recycle bin, then clicked the "empty recycle bin" item while trying to open the bin to get it back, and finally panicked and clicked "yes" when my computer asked me if that was what I really wanted to do. It's really Microsoft's fault for making it so easy to permanently delete documents.

Etymology: from butter(fing)er + fling

COMMENTS:

I tried to use one of those fancy pieces of software to recover the data from the hard drive, but I accidentally wrote zeros to every bit on the disk. Then I spilled corrosive acid and lighter fluid on it, set it on fire while trying to ascertain the damage with a candle, and mistakenly hit it with a sledgehammer 40 times. - ErWenn, 2008-03-05: 09:32:00

I actually did destroy a hard drive with a sledgehammer once, but that was on purpose. - ErWenn, 2008-03-05: 09:33:00

another migraine moment - I do like your word today - Jabberwocky, 2008-03-05: 10:44:00

Luv butterflingers ... maybe because that's what mine are! It's a great one letter change to blend two words into a really funny, but very apt, exceptional verboticism! Outstanding! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-05: 13:27:00

Pulpitation

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: pulp-per-TEY-shun

Sentence: Little did the young reverend know that datastrophe dangled above him like damoclean sword, as he mistakenly shredded, and pulped the last dirty document from the Archbishop’s 666 boxes of private pornographic papers. But when he heard a ranting, raving, roaring, purple-robed, crimson-faced figure storming towards him, he fell to his knees in prayer. And as he prayed, his thoughts were only of the Archbishop’s pornografia, including the sincunabula he had unwittingly pulped, so much so that his pulpitations became so strong that he thought that his heart was a about to leap from his chest. Looking to the heavens for comfort all he could see were the church walls with Michelangelo’s face staring back at him. Resorting to scripture, he yelled out in panic, "It‘s the "Textasy and Datagony. Textilence, perhaps - in the Archbihop's case, sextilence - is upon the land; Infogeddon is at hand."

Etymology: Blend of PULP: to reduce to pulp, destroy, crush; PALPITATION: to throb, flutter like the rapid beating of the heart when excited, anxious, nervous, etc; and, in this case, PULPIT.
