Pronunciation: FY-d'oh

Sentence: A common phrase heard whenever Delbert came around with his dog was 'Fidoh' because the dog was unruly and unmanageable and could be counted on to create havoc wherever it might roam.

Etymology: Blend of the generic pet name 'Fido' and the term 'D'oh' from the Simpsons sometimes indicating that something bad is about to happen.

Pronunciation: hyper-ob-nox-i-tive

Sentence: Carol was afraid that Steve's behavior was becoming more and more bizarre. She couldn't have her friends over anymore for fear that they would be alarmed by his increasingly unrestrained, gauche behavior. One day, while waiting for her nail appointment, she read in a Woman's magazine the 7 warning signs of hyperobnoxitivity. She never knew there was a name for his condition. All this time she thought it was the beer. So she took the test and was shocked. There ws no doubt. Steve was hyperobnoxitive. Carol quickly called her therapist to have Steve diagnosed so he could begin treatment. Perhaps this would save her marriage.

Etymology: Hyper: pref. (Greek: huper) over, beyond; excessive. Obnoxious: adj. highly objectionable, offensive Sensitive: adj. physiology--having a low threshold of sensation or feeling.


It was a great idea to treat this condition like a disease! You might have set us all a challenge for the day ... to create a pill for hyperobnoxtivity! It will be fun to check back and see if you or anyone else does. - silveryaspen, 2009-03-19: 13:23:00

mrskellyscl Sadly, this isn't completely curable -- however, some therapies such as cold shoulder and couch have been known to help manage it. Anyone who would like to donate to find a cure, let me know. - mrskellyscl, 2009-03-19: 13:34:00
