Sentence: Darrell was about to take a numbskulligan. Apparently he hadnt been convincing enough on his first try and he thought that by drinking just one more beer- he might just convince one of the fine ladies playing pool to take him home. "Alright, Gals!" Darrell staggered back over to the pool table. "Which one of you fine fillies wants to be my future ex-wife?" Darrell had a long walk home.

Etymology: Blend of "Numbskull" - A stupid person; a nitwit and "Mulligan" - Most simply put, a "do-over."
