Demongrafixed

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: DEE-mun-GRAFF-ixed

Sentence: Polly was feeling violated lately. The used car she just bought was quickly accompanied by junk mail from the manufacturer, who got her name from DMV records. Microsoft rebooted her laptop whenever they saw fit, and her MySpace page was liberally sprinkled with ads for Frank Zappa merchandise ever since she included the keywords "wowie zowie" in a posting. Polly's vital stats were piling up somewhere in cyberspace, and she felt DEMONGRAFIXED as the rising tide of targeted junk mail clogged her rural delivery box. Finally she snapped and vowed to "get off the grid". She took her camerafone and laptop, living in her Yugo and seeking "hotspots" where she could compute for free. But "they" had her number, her GPS location, and Polly eventually descended into madness as the offers of "2weeks of free treatment" at Sunnyvale Psychiatric Institute continued to pop up on her screens and in her mind.

Etymology: DEMON+demoGRAPHICS+FIXED=DEMONGRAFIXED>DEMON:an evil spirit,a source or agent of evil, harm, distress, or ruin; Middle English demon, from Late Latin & Latin; Late Latin daemon evil spirit, from Latin, divinity, spirit, from Greek daimōn, probably from daiesthai to distribute.....DEMOGRAPHICS:the statistical characteristics of human populations (as age or income) used especially to identify markets.....FIX(fixed): to kill, harden, and preserve for microscopic study,to make a profitable determination of, to get ready or prepare,to get even with, to influence the actions, outcome, or effect of by IMPROPER or ILLEGAL methods;Middle English, from Latin fixus, past participle of figere to fasten; akin to Lithuanian dygti to sprout, break through.
