Glad I read your comment to Tigger before commenting. GMTA ... great minds think alike! So when two of you independently came up with the same verboticism ... it must be doubly good! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-15: 20:57:00

That happens frequently around here, dalmero8. Don't sweat it... Say, wouldn't it be simple to just keep track of the celebrities that aren't in rehab? - Tigger, 2008-02-15: 21:57:00

I like it!! Sounds a lot like my own obsessceleb. - Mustang, 2008-02-15: 22:53:00

Pronunciation: sell-ebb-re-tard

Sentence: Realizing that her fish had all died and that she had not eaten properly in a week, Jackie realized that her obsession with following the details of Britney Spears' mental breakdown had caused her to celebretard her own life.

Etymology: celebrity - a celebrated person + retard -a holding back or slowing down.


Excellent etymology ... couldn't have chosen a better descryptive combo ... especially the retard! Great creation! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-15: 10:04:00

libertybelle i didn't want to offend anyone -so i made sure to put the definition as written in Webster's. Though i suppose people don't necessarily get up in arms when they read their kids pj's are flame retardant. - libertybelle, 2008-02-15: 10:35:00

I never gave it a thought libertybelle ... good point. It is never my intention to offend, when words can be perceived in many ways. Yet ... I can't help thinking, if we shunned every word that might be mindtwisted so it can be construed offensive, we might have to become mutants! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-15: 11:10:00

Either that, or we'll have to create verbotocisms like "rockrock" or "boulderstone" - DeltaRho2K, 2008-02-15: 13:41:00

Great creation! It could also apply to the celebrities who do stupid things in public eye to inspire such fascination. - Tigger, 2008-02-15: 23:00:00

Pronunciation: stardom

Tigger, great idea! Did you think of it when you were hanging out with Demi/Ashton/Bruce at Sundance or as a guest at Eddy Murphy's fake wedding or schmoozing with Heidi and Seal at that Versace Fashion thingy?? Do tell, enquiring minds want to know...

Tigger - 2008-02-15: 02:46:00
Oh, the Versace thing! Wasn't that just absolutely fab? All my peeps were there and... Well no, I wasn't actually there, but I uh — I read all about it. I could've gone, but I was still distraught over the Pam Anderson divorce. [Ok, I'm giving myself the creeps now — I hate people who talk like that!]
