Clever and creative! - OZZIEBOB, 2008-03-03: 18:36:00

A verbotomy for "n.: A tune that becomes lodged in one's consciousness and repeated ad nauseum, until replaced by one equally or more irritating, or until the victim suffers a psychotic break." About six months ago, we verbotomized on above definition. I'm pretty certain that Purpleartichokes got the nod for "Tunestruck." I'm also stumbled upon "reperditty" and "abbamatically ". - OZZIEBOB, 2008-03-03: 18:53:00

Thanks, OB. Kind of an obvious candidate. - stache, 2008-03-03: 19:20:00

Me too, Nosalia. I'm a newbie: is there a verbotomy for this? "n.: A tune that becomes lodged in one's consciousness and repeated ad nauseum, until replaced by one equally or more irritating, or until the victim suffers a psychotic break." - stache, 2008-03-03: 10:27:00

I love sentences that make use of songs lyrics or titles, etc. Good one! - OZZIEBOB, 2008-03-03: 18:43:00

Sure, stache! Go ahead and submit it! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 22:30:00

Shoot! I posted the above before I read under comments on your verbot, stache, that it has been done before! Today I'm a day late, a dollar short, a fingerslipping, and in a mindripping muddle! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 23:02:00
