Sloshoeuvre

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: slosh-OO-vre.....(akin to slosh over)

Sentence: Jarhead didn't have a drinking problem. Like so many unfortunates, he simply "sucked at life". A prolific writer as well as an olympic-class drinker, all his talents seemed to merge one tragic evening as his creative thoughts began to SLOSHOEUVRE. The meniscus of his mind began to decant delerious declarations which he hastily posted to...who knows where? Jarhead began to communiquart with everyone who had ever wronged him just before he puked into his keyboard. His writings had a certain claret-y which was apparent only from his side of the bacchanalian veil which slowly descended as the evening wore on. After several bottles of "Old Verbotomy" (aged at least a week), he began typing in some indecipherable code, which was probably for the best, because his enraged friends broke down the door and used a handtruck to get him into detox just before his liver failed. Now he admits he's powerless over alcohol, and Jarhead is the most popular speaker at the 12 Step House, next to the train tracks in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Etymology: SLOSH+OEUVRE=SLOSHOEUVRE.....SLOSH:The tendency of a liquid to move back and forth, often in a nauseating manner;blend of slop and slush (c.1814).....OEUVRE:a substantial body of work constituting the lifework of a writer, an artist, or a poet often composed while inebriated;French œuvre, literally, work, from Old French ovre.

metrohumanx Thanks, S.A. That was my first attempt at incorporating a French word....Pretentious? Moi?.... Wooly Bully-wooly Bully-Wooly Bully! :) - metrohumanx, 2008-11-24: 16:32:00

metrohumanx I'm not bilingual, but I AM tripolar. - metrohumanx, 2008-11-24: 16:33:00

Microbrewerysoft

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: my kro broo eree soft

Sentence: Michael was quickly fading into microbrewerysoft mode, after a night of tippling and typing.

Yes, it was high time that computers came with breathalyzers. Don't Drink and N-Drive!

Etymology: Microsoft (Computer Giant) & Micro Brewery (Small local brewery, usually makes beer and ale the old-fashioned way, often attached to a pub)

Geerbloggle

petaj

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: gear-blog-ul

Etymology: beer goggle (perception that things are much better than they are - like rose-coloured glasses, but brought on by too much beer) + blog + it's mixed up as though the interlocutor has had too many drinks

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Could geerbloggle also be a Spoonerism of sorts on your words of beer, blog, goggle ... and maybe even the end of the word bottle as in beer bottle? I like it. Very creative ... and we don't see very many spoonerisms here. You might just have inspired more! - silveryaspen, 2008-11-24: 16:37:00

I think I remember doing something like that myself. - Mustang, 2008-11-24: 23:36:00

metrohumanx Very clever. Hooray! - metrohumanx, 2008-11-25: 10:48:00

petaj yes definitely a spoonerism - petaj, 2008-11-26: 02:49:00
