Verboticism: Geerbloggle



Created by: petaj

Definition: v., To write an email while under the influence of an intoxicating substance. n., An email or blog post where the author has chosen to ignore standard literary and social conventions -- thanks to a liberal consumption of alcohol.

Pronunciation: gear-blog-ul

Sentence: Bella cursed inwardly when she read back the geerbloggle she posted at 2.00am and looked at the photographs from her night out. Just which one of these ugly mugs had she described as a "golden Adonis" on her blog? They were all hideous!

Etymology: beer goggle (perception that things are much better than they are - like rose-coloured glasses, but brought on by too much beer) + blog + it's mixed up as though the interlocutor has had too many drinks

Could geerbloggle also be a Spoonerism of sorts on your words of beer, blog, goggle ... and maybe even the end of the word bottle as in beer bottle? I like it. Very creative ... and we don't see very many spoonerisms here. You might just have inspired more!
