Verboticism: Flubbaghast

Flubbaghast

Created by: dochanne

Definition: n. A person who is so enamored with their online identity that they believe that it is more real than their physical one. v. To suddenly realize that you are large, blubbery mammal with no useful superpowers.

Pronunciation: Flubb-err-gast

Sentence: Andrew staggered into the bathroom after thrashing that ugly Gnorm with his sixth-level paladin and was horrified to find a big bald fat man staring at him. "What the?" he gasped, his heart racing. The man gasped too and Andrew was suddenly flubbaghast to realise that man was himself. His fitted leathers and taught biceps were gone, as were his flowing mane of black hair, his majik sword and that 'strange aura of mystique' bestowed on him by the beautiful Sorceress of Tarneg. Before him stood a pasty white balding man in his thirties, obviously carrying more than twice the weight of his avatar and Andrew's wishteria simply could not reconcile the two. He gave in to his superfaction and switched the light off. Shadow-daemons beware! Andion the Brave is here and he's not happy..

Etymology: Flubber - blubbery, flubbery wobbly-ness; Also Flubber - confuse, fluster. Flub - make mistake or error; Aghast - horrified, shocked and appalled. As in being aghast on finding one's flubberiness and the flub of having missed it due to De Nial (and not de river). Also - Superfaction (Super + stupefaction) and Wishteria (Wish + hysteria)
