Pronunciation: /sai-BOO-zuhld/

Sentence: Jack had written a note to himself, "Don't drink and e-mail" on his sticky-note pad, which he had apparently been using as a beer coaster, but the next morning as he perused his 'Sent' folder and saw the e-mail to his boss, calling him a "sissyboy", he knew he'd cyboozeled himself out of another job. He laid his throbbing head down next to the phone to await the inevitable call to inform him of his unemployed status.

Etymology: cyber - as in 'cyberspace' (slang for electronic communication) + booze - any alcoholic beverage (from Middle Dutch, busen "to drink heavily") & foozled - bungled; played clumsily (golf slang; Perhaps from German dial., fuseln "work poorly or slowly")

Sentence: As he machanically scrolled through about a dozen e-mails from giddy co-workers, the events of last evening began to take shape. Slowly, almost lazily, the dim suspicion of something being vaguely out of place began to yield to an outright dread as his gaze fell on the last message. That one was from Mr. Goldenshlock himself. The e-mail quoted Jake's own message to the entire company in which he described the etymology of the world "shlock" and advised Jake where he can pick up his last paycheck. Overcome by utter ethanolopression, Jake grabbed for the bottle with the last two drops of tequila and finished it off without thinking of the worm that stuck to his uvula.

Etymology: "Ethanol" - two carbon alcohol compound ubiquitous to all alcoholic beverages. "Pression" - root word from "depression. (Comment: the word was originally spelled with a hyphen: "e-thanolopression," which makes total sense given its original meaning. Through the ages, however, this was dropped by lazy spellers who felt it was beneath them to use the ring finger of their right hand to press an extra key [see: "ROFLMAO" "UR GR8" "BTW" and "BRB"]
