If he looked closely, through those bloodshot eyes, he swore he could read the impression of the "Do not remove this label" tag embedded in his forehead.

Etymology: sheet (a large rectangular piece of cotton or other fabric, used on a bed to cover the mattress and as a layer beneath blankets) + sh*tfaced (drunk or under the influence of drugs)

Napdoodle

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: nap-dōōd'-əl

Sentence: Ellen wondered why her husband had looked doubtful when she claimed she'd been busy cleaning all day -- although in truth, she had just woken up -- until she began wiping down the mirror, and she realized that she'd been marked by a huge napdoodle covering the whole right side of her face, her exaggeration betrayed by the web of creases from the pillow. She'd had a big snoozemap on her face the whole time.

Etymology: nap (Middle English, from nappen - "to doze") + doodle - "a design, or the like, made by idle scribbling" (Origin: 1935–40, Americanism)
