Pronunciation: bluhb-er-ney-shuh n

Sentence: After moving to Maine Jose was always cold, even in the summer. It wasn't until his friend Joan told him about blubbernation, the consumption of copious quantities of fatty food, that he warmed up. Now he's warm though he does look like he's wearing a parka even with his shirt off.

Etymology: blubber (the fat layer between the skin and muscle of whales) + hibernation (to spend the winter in close quarters in a dormant condition, as bears and certain other animals)
