Proofonodz

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: PROO-fuh-nodz

Sentence: "You can't sleep at the circulation desk !" screamed EvilPat at the bored, bleary-eyed library assistant. " I WASN"T sleeping !" he replied with the standard look of indignation. "But there are PROOFONODZ all over your face !" replied EvilPat, in her best administrative patois. Faced with such irrefutable evidence, the chastised library assistant crafted an appropriate sign for the desk: "PLEASE WAKE ATTENDANT FOR SERVICE".....and drifted off to sleep with a clear conscience.

Etymology: PROOF+(of)+NOD+(catch some) Zs= PROOFONODZ.....Proof: the cogency of evidence that compels acceptance by the mind of a truth or a fact,something that induces certainty or establishes validity;Middle English prof, prove, alteration of preve, from Anglo-French preove, from Late Latin proba, from Latin probare to prove....."O": tastless substitute for the word "OF", usually seen in pretentious advertising:(cup o soup,bac o bits,etc)....NOD:To fall asleep,to make a quick downward motion of the head (as from drowsiness);Middle English nodden; perhaps akin to Old High German hnotōn to shake.....Z: suffix brashly used to imply pluralization (in a tacky way)derived from the slang expression "catch some Zs"-meaning to sleep. Pretty farfetched combination, eh?
