Pronunciation: Queue - irkt

Sentence: There was only one clerk at one register at Kame-Apart. Dismayed and waylaid, in a long line, those imprisoned in it found no time peace. Then, the chap at the end, like a defensive forward, with elbows attackling, made a mad line drive, surging queueickly to the front, leaving the rest of us waitstresses even more queueirked!

Etymology: QUEUE, IRKED, QUIRKED. QUEUE - waiting line. IRKED - annoyed, frustrated, exasperated, irritated and angry. QUIRK - the twist of fate that resulted in the long line and the line-jumper. /// Kame-Apart for K-Mart is not my invention. I have heard it many times and don't know who created it. /// Attackling is a verbotomy of attack and tackling. /// Queueickly is a verbotomy of queue and quickly.
