Sneezebucket

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: sneez-BUHK-it

Sentence: SNEEZEBUCKET n A disgusting, self-centred co-worker who, when suffering from a contagious illness, refuses to leave the office and stay at home until better. Coughing, spluttering and sneezing, he suffers from the delusion that his work-ethic is much stronger than that of his colleagues, and that his importance to the organization is far greater than that of theirs also.

Etymology: Sneeze & bucket. If he's a sleazebucket to boot - look out!

I'm guessing the etymology is something like: infected + dedicated. DankJemo, did you know you get more points for including the pronunciation, sentence and etymology? Plus, you may get more votes too. - Tigger, 2008-05-07: 22:10:00
