Sentence: Ted's main cockupation is phoning his ex girlfriend when he's drunk. But he also has a few sidelines like locking himself out of his house and eating stupidly hot curries when he's on the last few sheets of loo roll.

Etymology: A play on 'occupation'. Cock up + occupation = cockupation. Cock/cock up - a mistake/to make an error. Occupation - an activity or vocation.
