A verbotomy for "n.: A tune that becomes lodged in one's consciousness and repeated ad nauseum, until replaced by one equally or more irritating, or until the victim suffers a psychotic break." About six months ago, we verbotomized on above definition. I'm pretty certain that Purpleartichokes got the nod for "Tunestruck." I'm also stumbled upon "reperditty" and "abbamatically ". - OZZIEBOB, 2008-03-03: 18:53:00

Thanks, OB. Kind of an obvious candidate. - stache, 2008-03-03: 19:20:00
