Pronunciation: /blab-bom-uh-NAY-shun/

Sentence: Susan realized that she should have assigned someone to curb her best friend's consumption of Fuzzy Navel's at her wedding reception when Brandi suddenly grabbed the microphone. Her scandalous chronology of Susan's ex-boyfriends, and her awful breakups with them, was a total blabomination, and was recieved only with shocked silence. Afterward, Susan calmly walked over to the videographer, who had recorded the whole thing, threatened him with violence if didn't edit that speech out of the wedding video, borrowed a phone and tried to find a number for a Homicide Hotline, if there was such a thing.

Etymology: Blab - to reveal indiscreetly and thoughtlessly (back formation from Middle English, blabberen "to talk idly") + Abomination - a vile, shameful, or detestable action (from Latin, abominatus "shun as an ill omen")
