Sentence: Wendy was furious at her fiance Paul's poor manners. He always took phone calls when they were in the middle of something together, like a serious discussion and put her on hold until he was finished. The final straw was on their honeymoon, when at the most intimate moment, he answered a call and talked for ten minutes. She was really mad when she found out that the callisinterruptus was a poll company doing a survey about what he did to make his relationships more romantic!

Etymology: Call is (telephone connection is) & Interrupt us (interfere in someone else's activity)& play on Coitus Interruptus (contraceptive method)

Pronunciation: gal-ohs-bee-ver

Sentence: We were keenly discussing the Tolkien references in Zeppelin's music, when Robert's mate Jimmy phoned; and of course the gallowsbeaver had to ramble on, seemingly forgetting our presence.

Etymology: From "gallows" which leaves people hanging, and "beaver" used to mean someone who is eager, and "dam" rude. Boom boom. Also "beavers" in Scouting are the youngest members, giving my word connotations of "childish".
