Shotmail

libertybelle

Created by: libertybelle

Pronunciation: shaht-mayl

Sentence: It was utterly clear to Bonnie that her ex-husband was sending out emails from his shotmail account last night as she waded through his misspellings proclaiming that he was so sorry they ever split up and that he was sorry that she was such a bitch to him. She didn't know it was possible to slur in text, but somehow Phil had captured the essence of what he had found in the bottom of the bottle of Johnnie Walker. She supposed, however, that it still beat him drunk dialing her at 3 am.

Etymology: shot - a small portion of liquor + Hotmail - a well known site for email.

Tipsymail

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /tip-see-mayl/

Sentence: Our senior co-worker, Frank, would enjoy himself at Happy Hour at the bar next door to the office, but then he'd sometimes return to work, and tipsymail the group about next week's assignments. It's hard to believe that someone can 'slur' in e-mail like that...

Etymology: tipsy - slightly intoxicated or drunk (from Middle English, typen "to upset, overturn") + e-mail (short for electronic mail — but of course, you already knew that.)

Bukowskegram

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: byoo-cowsk-e-gramm

Sentence: Trent hoped that picture his college roommate had sent him was in fact a close-up of a sphinx cat kitten, or maybe an out-of-focus shar pei. It was wishful thinking on his behalf, though, as he had been e-bagged in a Bukowskegram.

Etymology: Bukowski - Charles Bukowski, famous alcohol loving author, e - as in electronic/email, gram - from telegram

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

In hindsight, Bukowskemail would flow a little better, but I like the old fashioned quaintness of gram along with Chuck. - Banky, 2008-01-31: 11:02:00

love the literary reference - Jabberwocky, 2008-01-31: 12:00:00

Good word! Chuck had to be in there somewhere! - OZZIEBOB, 2008-01-31: 22:24:00

Geerbloggle

petaj

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: gear-blog-ul

Sentence: Bella cursed inwardly when she read back the geerbloggle she posted at 2.00am and looked at the photographs from her night out. Just which one of these ugly mugs had she described as a "golden Adonis" on her blog? They were all hideous!

Etymology: beer goggle (perception that things are much better than they are - like rose-coloured glasses, but brought on by too much beer) + blog + it's mixed up as though the interlocutor has had too many drinks

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Could geerbloggle also be a Spoonerism of sorts on your words of beer, blog, goggle ... and maybe even the end of the word bottle as in beer bottle? I like it. Very creative ... and we don't see very many spoonerisms here. You might just have inspired more! - silveryaspen, 2008-11-24: 16:37:00

I think I remember doing something like that myself. - Mustang, 2008-11-24: 23:36:00

metrohumanx Very clever. Hooray! - metrohumanx, 2008-11-25: 10:48:00

petaj yes definitely a spoonerism - petaj, 2008-11-26: 02:49:00

Microbrewerysoft

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: my kro broo eree soft

Sentence: Michael was quickly fading into microbrewerysoft mode, after a night of tippling and typing.

Yes, it was high time that computers came with breathalyzers. Don't Drink and N-Drive!

Etymology: Microsoft (Computer Giant) & Micro Brewery (Small local brewery, usually makes beer and ale the old-fashioned way, often attached to a pub)
