Joe shuffled off to find an HR rep who could help him with this rather pressing problem.

Etymology: inflate + flatulate

Uberloquitor

Created by: XMbIPb

Pronunciation: /ü-bər-lo-kwi-tor/

Sentence: I can’t even tell you what George and I drank over the weekend. Nor how much of it we drank. Neither remembers. All I can say is that Master George – and there’s no other way I can call him from now on – is a bloody genius! Despite a massive hangover and absolute lack of preparation, he managed to UBERLOQUITATE the entire board meeting into extending our contract for two (count’em – t-w-o) more years! I mean I was sitting there with my head feeling like a cracked egg shell, while Master George managed to pull a presentation full of “gestalt,” “zeitgeist,” “sine qua non,” “parallax,” and at least a dozen words all of which had at least one vowel with an umlaut. I love that guy!

Etymology: uberloquitor (n.), uberloquacious (adj.), uberloquitate (v.) ----- UBER- (fr. Germ.): over, beyond. [Recently replaced other such superlative prefixes as “super-“ and “ultra-“ (see: “ubergeek,” “uberhack,” “ubercool”)] LOQUI – (fr. Latin) to speak.

Love the 'toon today James. I think my boss is considering installing one on our bathroom doors, complete with an age-appropriate timer, which leaves me wondering when I'm gonna get a chance to pluck my eyebrows.

Thanks Purple, Is there a personal purpose code for plucking your eyebrows? ~ James
