Inflatoad

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: in-FLAY-toed (inflatoading, inflatoaded, inflatoady)

Sentence: Generica became insufferable after receiving her promotion to flunky (second class)...She would INFLATOAD every sentence she uttered, making her simple thoughts swell like the bloated carcass of a dead corporate amphibian. Although her INFLATOADING endeared her to the sniveling rat-faced deviant administrators who practiced reverse sexism while touting the wonders of enlightened cultural diversity, everyone had to agree that Generica had become an INFLATOADY of the worst kind...the kind we all know.

Etymology: INFLATe+tOAD=INFLATOAD.....INFLATE:to swell or distend with air or gas, to puff up, to expand or increase abnormally or imprudently; Middle English, from Latin inflatus, past participle of inflare, from in- + flare to blow .....TOAD, TOADY: a contemptible person or thing, one who flatters in the hope of gaining favors; by shortening & alteration from toadeater- Middle English tode, from Old English tāde, tādige.

Bigganerdy

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: big ah nerd ee

Sentence: Mr. Weisenhammer hit people over the head with big words. He greeted everyone with "Salutations" instead of 'Hello'. He would ask "What, is the current status of your overall, and general, phsysical and mental conditions"? rather than a simple 'How are you'? His largesse with words was really a largemess. It made you want to break his biggy-bank of big words. He thought they made him a big wig. Everyone else thought they made him a bigganerdy.

Etymology: BIGGER, NERD. Bigger - larger, more of, greater. Nerd - one who is excessively interested in using bigger technical, scientific words.

Pronunciation: ack-ro-nimm-rohd

GBTW and, get `em to me ASAP, or I'll tell HR or your GM that you're in AA and are faking being sick instead of using PTO hours.

Good one, Banky,your STAT response encapsulates this scenario and empowers the disenfranchised to become key stakeholders in this etymological challenge! - Nosila, 2008-03-06: 01:07:00
