Verboticism: Inflatulate


Created by: Jamagra

Pronunciation: in/flach/u/late

Sentence: Joe dithered outside the bathroom door. The access instructions distributed at the 3 hour "securitized lavatory entrance system" meeting had seemed very clear at the time: choose #1 or choose #2. But, Joe now wondered, what about an employee requiring #1 AND #2? Had there been a third option? Why, oh why, had he not paid more attention to the inflatulated memo??? Joe shuffled off to find an HR rep who could help him with this rather pressing problem.

Etymology: inflate + flatulate
