Raptionalize

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /RAP-shun-uh-liyz/

Sentence: Nothing was ever Doug's fault, and he would be the first one to admit that.

Even when he was caught taking office supplies from the office, he blamed his parents for not spending enough time with him as a child, because, he explained, they were both workaholics.

Etymology: Rap - blame or punishment, especially for a crime (from Swedish, rapp "light blow" as in a rebuke) + Rationalize - to ascribe problems to causes that superficially seem reasonable and valid, but are actually unrelated (from Latin, ratiōnālis "reason")
