Butterflinger

Created by: ErWenn

Pronunciation: /ˈbʌdɚˌflɪŋgɚ/

Sentence: I am not really a butterflinger; it's just that I first accidentally dropped an important file into the recycle bin, then clicked the "empty recycle bin" item while trying to open the bin to get it back, and finally panicked and clicked "yes" when my computer asked me if that was what I really wanted to do. It's really Microsoft's fault for making it so easy to permanently delete documents.

Etymology: from butter(fing)er + fling

COMMENTS:

I tried to use one of those fancy pieces of software to recover the data from the hard drive, but I accidentally wrote zeros to every bit on the disk. Then I spilled corrosive acid and lighter fluid on it, set it on fire while trying to ascertain the damage with a candle, and mistakenly hit it with a sledgehammer 40 times. - ErWenn, 2008-03-05: 09:32:00

I actually did destroy a hard drive with a sledgehammer once, but that was on purpose. - ErWenn, 2008-03-05: 09:33:00

another migraine moment - I do like your word today - Jabberwocky, 2008-03-05: 10:44:00

Luv butterflingers ... maybe because that's what mine are! It's a great one letter change to blend two words into a really funny, but very apt, exceptional verboticism! Outstanding! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-05: 13:27:00

Inadvertentectomyangst

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: in ad vert ent ekt omee angst

Sentence: Although it bothered her a lot, Hilary Hack had no choice but to do it. Her Hockey Star cheating boyfriend, Randy Gote had been caught with his pants down, again. She had warned him of the consequences the last time, but apparently he did not take her seriously. When she had caught him, she revved up the old Black & Decker in a fit of jealous rage and told him afterwords that the only Hockey Team he could try out for now was the Castor Raiders. Still, she was overcome with a feeling of inadvertentectomyangst...because his days of body-checking and stick-handling were over.

Etymology: Inadvertent (accidental;by chance) & -ectomy (suffix for surgical removal/incision of something to eliminate it) & Angst (an acute but unspecific feeling of anxiety)
