Sentence: As if trying to learn and keep up with modern computer technology is not hard enough for older people, every now and then some punk, somewhere in the world, throws out a morphing virus or bug. These types change constantly and therefore are called chameleonline viruses. Maybe we will eventually have the technology to track these viral vandals down and make them pay for the inconvenience and damage done to other people's PC's. In our lifetime...

Etymology: Chameleon (lizard of Africa and Madagascar able to change skin color; a changeable or inconstant person) & Online (controlled by or connected to a computer(of an activity or service) available on or performed using the Internet or other computer network)

Whatever rally or social gathering that was going on, they were there especially if it meant missing classes or if there was food to be had.

Chameleonparkerbowles

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kam eel leon par ker bolz

Sentence: Our computer at work has been hit by a new virus or worm. There was no warning beforehand...it just popped up Wednesday. It seems to change direction constantly...one minute all your e-mails disappear, next minute you get them back, plus ones that really belong in the director's computer. Oh well, it was not our fault the virus unloaded some very entertaining reading for us. Apparently the same rules forbidding personal use of the computer do not apply to the boss. Who knew he'd had a passionate, also married, girlfriend on the side for over 30 years? With graphic pictures? We've dubbed the virus a chameleonparkerbowles. It's going to be a royal pain for him when Mrs. Director finds out. Maybe this would be a good time to leverage this new knowledge vis-a-vis a raise to silence the troops? His mother is also going to crown him when she finds out. Without our raise, she too may get a mysterious e-mail, with pictures. And someday her Prints may come...

Etymology: Chameleon (a changeable or inconstant person; a lizard that can change to the colour of its surroundings) & Camilla Parker-Bowles (famous "other woman" who carried on a torrid affair with Prince Charles for over 30 years, even while he had married another. Since Diana, his ex expired, he has married his true love...why the heck didn't he do it in the first place??)
