Sentence: Kenny donned his star trek outfit for the first time and headed off to the convention deliberately leaving behind his duffel bag with the spare set of civvies. However, once he got on the bus and the kid behind started jeering at him, he had a boldlygowobbly moment or two debating the merits of taking a detour to K-mart.

Etymology: boldly go (from the Star trek mission statement) + go wobbly (as in "don't go all wobbly on me now")
