metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: lie-uh-BILL-uht-ont

Sentence: Sally tried to LIEABILLETAUNT Oscar into getting off his chromium sofa and helping her compose a winning sentence to submit to Verbotomy, but he chose to lie around in a semi-catatonic state and dream of imaginary guitar notes that would irritate...his irritatingly overproductive girlfriend Camouflossie. No amount of LIEABILLETAUNTING could make Oscar expend even a single erg of his preciously guarded energy...if he ever HAD any.

LIE: to be or to stay at rest in a horizontal position : be prostrate on someone’s couch-Middle English, from Old English licgan; akin to Old High German ligen to lie, Latin lectus bed, Greek lechos.....

Billet: an official order directing that a slacker be provided with board and lodging (as in a private home)- Middle English bylet, from Anglo-French billette, diminutive of bille bill.....
