Verboticism: Inflatoad

Inflatoad

Created by: metrohumanx

Definition: v. To demonstrate your superior knowledge and intellect by using complex, confusing and mind-numbingly stupid jargon. n. A person who uses big words to inflate their unusually small ideas.

Pronunciation: in-FLAY-toed (inflatoading, inflatoaded, inflatoady)

Sentence: Generica became insufferable after receiving her promotion to flunky (second class)...She would INFLATOAD every sentence she uttered, making her simple thoughts swell like the bloated carcass of a dead corporate amphibian. Although her INFLATOADING endeared her to the sniveling rat-faced deviant administrators who practiced reverse sexism while touting the wonders of enlightened cultural diversity, everyone had to agree that Generica had become an INFLATOADY of the worst kind...the kind we all know.

Etymology: INFLATe+tOAD=INFLATOAD.....INFLATE:to swell or distend with air or gas, to puff up, to expand or increase abnormally or imprudently; Middle English, from Latin inflatus, past participle of inflare, from in- + flare to blow .....TOAD, TOADY: a contemptible person or thing, one who flatters in the hope of gaining favors; by shortening & alteration from toadeater- Middle English tode, from Old English tāde, tādige.

".. the bloated carcass of a dead corporate amphibian.' Great word and sentence imagery.
