Deafhere

Created by: scrabbelicious

Pronunciation: /Deh-ef-he-ear/

Sentence: Mrs. Soul patched the call through to her secretary. "I thought I told you I wasn't here?", she said, you just have to turn a deafhere.

Etymology: Deafhere n., hybrid of the nouns deaf and here, and inspired by the phrase "to turn a deaf ear", which is a common adult tactic and defense mechanism. Is the spell checker new to this site? I just noticed it now. Don't expect a reply of course, in the circumstances I mean.

Pronunciation: mu ther DUK er

Sentence: Conn manages to be "sick" every year during inventory week. This is the fourth year that he's stayed home while the rest of us have to climb ladders with pen and paper and count every stinking widget on those dusty shelves. He doesn't even try to be creative any more - he's like, "Still have the flu... yeah, that's the ticket...." I can't believe the boss STILL hasn't caught on to that lazy motherducker.

Etymology: duck (to dodge, evade) + mother*ucker

Circumvenshun

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sir kum ven shun

Sentence: Wally hated people bugging him at home. It did not matter whether it was on the phone, e-mail or at the door, he had the act of circumvenshun down to a fine art. People thought he was eccentric or occupied with some big hush-hush project. The reality was that Wally hated missing a moment of his daytime dramas. Yes, he watched every soap opera on the tube, every day. One could say that Wally was Young & Restless, he was living the Days of Our Lives to the fullest, his tv friends were like All My Children. He was not Bold & Beautiful, but if he had One Life to Live, As the World Turns, he was going to end up in General Hospital if he did not get some exercise!

Etymology: Circumvention (the act of evading) & Shun (avoid and stay away from deliberately; stay clear of)
