Skidzak

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: SKIDZ-ack

Sentence: Rhoda's formica desktop developed an unsightly SKIDZAK which attested to her many hours of click-and-dragging...she had already worn out several Kevlar mousepads and worn a groove in her pathetic trackball. A digitransplant cured her carping tunnel syndrome, but she could never tolerate an unsightly SKIDZAK in her "work" area. However, she DID have 200+ verboticisms under her belt, so her life was not a TOTAL loss.

Etymology: SKID:to slide without rotating (as a wheel held from turning while a vehicle moves onward);perhaps of Scandinavian origin; akin to Old Norse skīth stick of wood.....ERZAK:to repeatedly snap one's fingers onto someone's head, resulting in a nagging pain and lingering paranoia.

metrohumanx That's ONE disturbed-lookig rodentette. - metrohumanx, 2008-10-17: 06:13:00

metrohumanx Copy and paste-copy and paste.... - metrohumanx, 2008-10-17: 06:18:00

metrohumanx Please excuse me if i tend to ramble on ond on, especially in the nob-editable "comments" area, but i have become addicted to Verbotomizing, and until an appropriate 12-step group crops up here in the hinterlands of the foothills, i guess you'll just have to put up with my excessive copying-and-pasting, since i am a 2-fingered typist with a Verbotomonkey on his back. Until I can have it surgically removed, you can just skip over all my inane comments and get down to the real Funkadelic verbotomisms which other more enlightened folks with less time on their hands and gobs of self-control have created. - metrohumanx, 2008-10-17: 07:45:00

metrohumanx It's like the dyslexic atheist once said: There IS no dog. - metrohumanx, 2008-10-17: 09:54:00

artr and the dyslexic Christian said. I was meant to be a bit backwards. It's the way doG made me. - artr, 2008-10-17: 10:58:00

that's my favorite part of verbotomy - the dialdog...keep up the rambling metro - Jabberwocky, 2008-10-17: 11:57:00

metrohumanx Thanks, Jab...it certainly makes the daze pass quickly. - metrohumanx, 2008-10-17: 12:01:00

So, Metro...are you waiting for a Verbotolobotomy before you can quit?? - Nosila, 2008-10-17: 22:16:00

metrohumanx I used to think i'd quit once i became the top verbotomist, but it doesn't look like that's gonna happen anytime soon...and besides, i'm having too much fun in the wee hours of the morning. I've developed a strange fondness for all you guys, and even though you're scattered far and wide, my simplified brain has formed little images of each of you, however erroneous these images may be. Little facets of your endearing personalities shine through each verboticism and make each revealing "sentence" more poignant and interesting. - metrohumanx, 2008-10-18: 06:37:00

Great stuff, Metro - OZZIEBOB, 2008-10-19: 00:43:00

metrohumanx Thanks, O-bob. Eight hours and fifteen minutes to go..... - metrohumanx, 2008-10-19: 15:46:00

metrohumanx Does living closer to the Greenwich Meridian give one an unfair "jump" on the daily word? - metrohumanx, 2008-10-19: 15:48:00
