Sentence: Nathalie had found her new boyfriend in a compromising position with his teenage lover. Of course, she lost no time in revving up her chain saw and dispensing of the guilty parties. She did shredgitate a bit because, in hindsight, on such short notice, where else would she find another date for the New Year's Eve bash she had booked and a babysitter for her 6 kids? It was inshredulous that she might spend such a special day in jail!!!

Was surprised there was no reference to the most famous shredding incident of all time, Watergate. Luv shredigate! Do you ever wonder how much shredding is part of office politics, too?
