Pronunciation: Bluhn-der-HUHSH

Sentence: Even though the weather forecaster warned of a hot day ahead, we looked forward to our afaring to town. The train came along on time. But where would we sit? Not a seat to be found. Another stop; a further folk-throng squeeze themselves somehow through the doors into this airless "coffin". One stop from "heaven", a few sweaty, weary wayfarers alight, but still my 102 year old grandmother is standing. We arrive at where we want to be. As we stumble blindly from the train, the Minister of Transport, "undergoing the hardships" of daily travel, chirms from the platform," Did you all have a good trip." His thoughtless hooting is met with blunderhush; until gran's voice breaks the wordless still: " Better you give up your day job and go into selling saunas."

Etymology: Blunder : To bungle, botch act stupid & Hush: silence or quitness; to suppress mention of.
