Bipolaricity

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: b'eye-poh-ler-ih-cih-tee

Sentence: Dr. Arky Bohta had created a safe haven in Savannah, Georgia, for sufferers of what he called Bipolaricity. Since the accidental onset and melting of the two polar icecaps the psychiatrist had been meticulously documenting the increasing mood swings and paranoia of his patients. His theory was that because the human body is more than 85% water the creeping and cruising of encroaching icebergs was the reason. However, on a hot and muggy summer's day, as two ice bergs from the South and North approached Key West and the Mason-Dixon line, he noted there was high and enthusiastic response during a group brainstorming session when one patient proposed brewing and bottling something called "BiPolar Ice Tea."

Etymology: Using BIPOLAR, the psychological term for severe mood disorders with the two (North and South) or bi (from L.) poles
