Verboticism: Injuritos



Created by: artr

Definition: n., A cut, or puncture wound on the roof of the mouth inflicted while consuming dangerously crunchy-sharp foods, like potato chips. v., To cut the roof your mouth while eating extra crispy snack foods.

Pronunciation: injərdərētōs

Sentence: If I didn't know better i would think Matt was something of a masochist. Every time I see him he is munching on a bag of Injuritos. The full-size chips are bad enough but the shards in the bottom of the bag might as well be chunks of glass. The insidious part is that the company that makes these "shivs in a sack" has added an ingredient called nacho that numbs the palate so that the damage is hardly noticed.

Etymology: injured (harmed, damaged, or impaired) + Doritos (a popular brand of chips)
