Nice use of innuendo! - OZZIEBOB, 2007-10-15: 21:41:00

petaj if you added crescendo to your etymology that would tie in nicely with the escalating sighs. - petaj, 2007-10-16: 09:06:00

Euborme

Created by: Lolagrrl

Pronunciation: yew-boar-mee

Sentence: Steve's eubormistic approach to his subordinates suggestions was legendary. The fact that these same suggestions resurfaced months later under Steve's heralding confirmed that he was simply an asshole.

Etymology: you+bore+me - yeah, it's pretty self explanatory but I like the adverb form "eubormistic"
