Degibbercrypt

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: dee-JIBBER-cript..........Degibbercrypt is an existing word. (Based a match found for Degibbercrypt found by TheFreeDictionary.)...I find this unlikely, and I stand by my word. -Metro

Sentence: Each dreary morning, Stubbly Stu entered the Temple of Technology where he was employed as an InfoTech specialist. Winter was approaching and the sun's piercing rays bounced off the freshly waxed hallway floors into his tender eyeballs, which had not fully recovered from a gin-soaked weekend of cyber-debauchery. Stunned and amazed, Stubbly Stu saw a cluster of his co-workers gathered in a confused knot and arguing with an intensity usually displayed at a much later, and more humane, time of day. Sookie was waving her Blackberry, Jeff had unholstered his cellfone, and poor low-tech Mark was clutching a crumpled E-mail memo he had printed out, not assigning any reality to something he could not hold in his hand. They all looked up at the same time and saw Stubbly Stu standing there agog. "Stu! Help us!" cried Sookie. "The boss sent out a memo, and we can't figure out if we're all fired or if we're to hurry down to the conference center!" The boss, newly arrived from Red China, stubbornly refused to learn more than the rudiments of Engrish, and regarded punctuation and spelling as a capitalist plot intended to make her "lose face". "Stand back, folks!" Stubbly Stu said with a flourish..." I'm going to DEGIBBERCRYPT this message RIGHT NOW!".....and so he did. They were all fired. :)

Etymology: Fusion of DECRYPT and GIBBERISH.....DECRYPT:transitive verb -to convert (as a coded message) into intelligible form; to recognize and interpret (an electronic signal).....GIBBERISH:unintelligible or meaningless language; a technical or esoteric language; pretentious or needlessly obscure language often generated by pompous or incompetent pseudotechnocrats who have attained positions of power, or think they have.

MrDave2176

Created by: MrDave2176

Pronunciation: dee-MUN-gul

Sentence: The message was almost hopelessly unreadable until Jeremy stepped in to demungle it.

Etymology: "to Mung" is a hacker term which means to alter in some negative way. A mungle message would be altered to be unreadable. To demungle would make it whole again, right?
