Anyone referencing Mr T deserves credit. Plus it's outta left field (original) and quirky enough to fit the definition. - Bulletchewer, 2007-03-27: 11:28:00

Somethinblue

Created by: Bulletchewer

Pronunciation: Sum-thin-bloo

Sentence: She went somethinblue, a rage beyond red, an envy exceeding green, pure despair, having found the rat and his cat christening the most thoughtful gift. (my word that's pretentious nonsense)

Etymology: From the tradition that a bride wears something old, new, borrowed and blue. Also based on the idea that "blue" denotes both sexual behaviour and sadness. Note also "thin" (as opposed to "thing") as describing the sheets.
