Blackedoutberry

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: blakd owt berree

Sentence: SONYa Ericsson went into Blackedoutberry mode, when her communicator failed to connect with the Mother ship. In her Qwest for an I-mate, she had gotten out of the Rover, and in one Cingular move had stepped on something Sharp, fell on her Acer, got a Gigabyte on her Vertu and did a Handspring back onto her Mitsubishi spacecraft, just before she ran out of O2. Over the Verizon, she spied a Cricket on a Palm and Samsung the praises of a Nokia No Kiss, NoTel policy before she Motorola'd back to Earth. When she landed safely in the Pacific, all the Siemens gave her a Boost Mobile, so she is now no longer a Virgin Mobile. Wit-DaeWoo! Wit-Daewoo!

Etymology: Blackberry ( a wireless handheld device which supports push email, web browsing, internet faxing, instant messaging, text messaging and other communication services.) & Blacked Out (a momentary loss of consciousness ;the failure of electric power for a general region;darkness resulting from the extinction of lights (as in a city invisible to enemy aircraft);a suspension of radio or tv broadcasting ;partial or total loss of memory)
