Exilophoned, he cried out, "How loud is the silence, doesn't it ever go away?" Orphoned, telereaved, he prayed that it hadn't fallen into the wrong hands. His pathetic dependence on it, together with his excessive texting and phoning, made him a chatatonic cliche, a stereotype of tingalingxiety.

Etymology: TINGALINNG: onomatopoeia for the sound of a phone & ANXIETY:troubled, uneasy, distressed.

five bonus verboticisms, not counting the off-def ones. Amazing. You're a star. Pronunciation is a bit awkward, though. Is that what you really meant? - stache, 2008-04-03: 07:23:00

so many great words - Jabberwocky, 2008-04-03: 13:00:00

yes, that's what I thought. Better now (says your friendly pronuncidunce (Pro NUN suh dunce)). - stache, 2008-04-03: 18:41:00
