Pronunciation: dee test pat turnd

Sentence: Each spring Joe and Melba had a tv marathon and picked an ancient tv series to watch in it's entirety for that weekend. After the sluggish weekend, which also meant little physical activity and way too much junk food, they went into a guilty funk of self-loathing...they were detestpatterned. This spring's weekend was no exception, when they watched the entire "Beverly Hillbillies" series, black & white and then coloured versions. By Sunday night, they had strong Ozark accents, had eaten possum in many forms, drank Granny's moonshine (rhematis' medicine) and carved their pool cues into pot passers for when they sat at the fancy eating table in the billiards room. Joe also learned how to play "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" on his fiddle! Well, doggy...

Etymology: Detested (disliked intensely; felt antipathy or aversion towards) & Test Pattern (A geometric chart transmitted by a television station to assist viewers in adjusting reception...since tv was not 24-7 in the old black & white tv days, the test pattern came on a while before the show started and was the last thing you saw on after the National Anthem played...boy does my age show!)
