Verboticism: Sloshoeuvre

Sloshoeuvre

Created by: metrohumanx

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: slosh-OO-vre.....(akin to slosh over)

Sentence: Jarhead didn't have a drinking problem. Like so many unfortunates, he simply "sucked at life". A prolific writer as well as an olympic-class drinker, all his talents seemed to merge one tragic evening as his creative thoughts began to SLOSHOEUVRE. The meniscus of his mind began to decant delerious declarations which he hastily posted to...who knows where? Jarhead began to communiquart with everyone who had ever wronged him just before he puked into his keyboard. His writings had a certain claret-y which was apparent only from his side of the bacchanalian veil which slowly descended as the evening wore on. After several bottles of "Old Verbotomy" (aged at least a week), he began typing in some indecipherable code, which was probably for the best, because his enraged friends broke down the door and used a handtruck to get him into detox just before his liver failed. Now he admits he's powerless over alcohol, and Jarhead is the most popular speaker at the 12 Step House, next to the train tracks in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Etymology: SLOSH+OEUVRE=SLOSHOEUVRE.....SLOSH:The tendency of a liquid to move back and forth, often in a nauseating manner;blend of slop and slush (c.1814).....OEUVRE:a substantial body of work constituting the lifework of a writer, an artist, or a poet often composed while inebriated;French Ĺ“uvre, literally, work, from Old French ovre.

If you are bilingual, when you sloshoeuvre your emails, are they in E-nglish/French too? Nice combo and etymology.
