Pronunciation: byoo-cowsk-e-gramm

Sentence: Trent hoped that picture his college roommate had sent him was in fact a close-up of a sphinx cat kitten, or maybe an out-of-focus shar pei. It was wishful thinking on his behalf, though, as he had been e-bagged in a Bukowskegram.

In hindsight, Bukowskemail would flow a little better, but I like the old fashioned quaintness of gram along with Chuck.
