Mailady: /Mail ah dee/ Mailanie Mailaprop, also known as Mrs. Mailaprop, loved pina coladas, especially the way mweinmann made them up and served them. It was the Mailabu rum in them that inspired Mrs. Mailaprop to fire off mailicious mailshots in the drunken dead of night. When opened the next morning, the crapnel (crappy shrapnel) from these mail bomb explosions, ricocheted back to hit Mrs. Mailaprop. Oh! How she suffered from this Mailady! Etymology: Mail, Malady ... Mail - send out messages via email. Malady - suffering from a disease or disorder, as in suffering from the physical disorder of a hangover - plus the mail disorder from writing under the influence.

Slurrealisation: /slur realise ayshun/ Samuel, or "Shixpack Shammy" as he was known to his colleagues was a troubled young lad. His entire life the world and people in particular seemed daft to him. Every day he woke to a prison of mediocrity and banality, where 'unreasonable' people refused to bend to suit his narcissistic views. Unable to stand the incessant anxiety, Sam escaped each evening to the comforts of drunken stupor; a slurrealistic realm where he was king. One evening after a particularly unproductive day of pointless meetings Sam snapped. He downed a case of his favourite lager, opened his laptop, and began to compose. He cajoled his colleagues, belittled his boss, and flummoxed his friends. Finally, exhausted and relieved, he collapsed upon his keyboard and drooled himself to sleep. The next day as he commuted, Sam opened his curiously sticky laptop and had a gut wrenching slurrealisation. Etymology: "Slur": (a) A nasty statement directed at someone you dislike. (b) The chaotic cadence inherent in the speech of inebriated humans. "Realisation": The curious sensation felt when something new occurs to you. "Surreal": That's like, totally surreal man Created by: emdeejay.
