Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: lo-PROD-uct-EEN-gull

Sentence: Sensing an evil presence nearby, Casper threw a spreadsheet over his Minesweeper game just in time to see the Library Director sweep past like the grim fog from a defiled graveyard. Slowly, a LOPRODUCTINGLE spread over him as every cell in his database quivered like a child caught in a lie. "I hope you're working on those usage reports." Pat said with a pseudofriendly voice that belied the hateful look in her cold grey administrative eye. "OH YEAH !" He stammered, only to regret his lack of a more creative reply. Casper's eyes never wandered from the monitor until she floated wraith-like into her office. Relieved that the moment had passed, he began to relax, but the LOPRODUCTINGLE returned like the rising tide of fear he felt in his coffee-filled bladder. An out-of-body sensation stupefied his mind as he catalogued all the woes this encounter could bring to his pleasantly mundane life. He minimized the screen which mocked his defiance and resumed play in the minefield of academic employment...

Today's definition was suggested by cohenarie. It is also inspired by Timothy Johnson's book "GUST" where he advises that the first thing you have to realize about office politics is that it's a game. Thank you Cohenarie and Timothy! ~ James
