Papyrupylump

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: puh-PIE-ruh-PIE-lump

Sentence: Cynthiana acquired a lifetime supply of sticky notepads as a result of her long dating relationship with Art, who owned an office supply store. 3,691,140 little sheets of semi-adhesive paper of many colors festooned her work area, and began to spread across the office like a slime mold on steroids. She would hand them out like after-dinner mints, and all her co-workers had piles of the little pads jamming their desk drawers. One day her PAPYRUPYLUMP had reached ridiculous proportions and prompted a written warning from the Fire Inspector. The boss gave her two options: seek immediate help or be terminated at once. With her pouty lips frozen in a grimace of defeat, she returned to her PAPYRUPYLUMP and penned one last flourescent orange note to herself: " Call Therapist A.S.A.P."

Etymology: PAPYRUs+PYlon+LUMP=PAPYPYLUMP.....PAPYRUS:the pith of the papyrus plant especially when made into strips and pressed into a material to write on- Middle English papir, from Anglo-French, from Latin papyrus papyrus, paper, from Greek papyros papyrus .....PYLON:Greek pylōn, from pylē gate - a monumental mass flanking an entranceway or an approach to an office.....LUMP:middle english 14th century-a piece or mass of indefinite size and shape.....thus:PAPYRUPYLUMP

Spasticky

Created by: ScrabbledEgg

Pronunciation: spa-stik-ee

Sentence: What began as simple postitillation during the early phase of her project, mushroomed to despostism as she became increasingly fanoteical the closer she got to her deadline. On the eve before her presentation, she went completely spasticky and was found the next morning cocooned in her cubicle, and mummified by her own gluey to do lists. She was diagnosed with minor paper cuts and Post-It Traumatic Stress Disorder and sent home to recuperate. The moral: Visual organizers can be good, but beware, my fellow verbotomists, it's a slippery slope...or in this case, a sticky one.

Etymology: spastic + sticky note
