Lunettetic

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: loon-net-tick

Sentence: As soon as the second obese man had settled to his right on the aisle, Roger noticed the seat in front of him. Down it crawled, inexorably lower with every passing second, wicking the sweat out of Roger, turning his hands clammy as the corpse he would inevitably become. His heart raced furiously as he calculated his escape, but it was too late; the plush polyester blade sat before him, adorned with a tacky 80s multi-color motif. So this is how it ended, huh, wedged between two Brandoesque men, a crazed lunettetic whose last meal was 5 stale pretzels.

Etymology: lunette - the portion of the guillotine that fixed the head in place, composed of two blocks each with semi-circular indentations + lunatic - an insane person
