Top verboticism of the day created by libertybelle

Pronunciation: shaht-mayl

Sentence: It was utterly clear to Bonnie that her ex-husband was sending out emails from his shotmail account last night as she waded through his misspellings proclaiming that he was so sorry they ever split up and that he was sorry that she was such a bitch to him. She didn't know it was possible to slur in text, but somehow Phil had captured the essence of what he had found in the bottom of the bottle of Johnnie Walker. She supposed, however, that it still beat him drunk dialing her at 3 am.

Etymology: shot - a small portion of liquor + Hotmail - a well known site for email.

Communidrunkation: /kəmyoōnədrəngkāshən/ It wasn't his fault. His English professor told the class to research a word by experiencing its definition. Chris chose "intoxicated". His communidrunkation to the entire online world let everybody know he was: inebriated, impaired, drunken, tipsy, under the influence, plastered, smashed, bombed, sloshed, sozzled, sauced, lubricated, well-oiled, wrecked, juiced, blasted, stinko, blitzed, half-cut, fried, wasted, hopped up, gassed, polluted, pissed, tanked (up), soaked, out of his head/skull, loaded, trashed, hammered, soused, buzzed, befuddled, besotted, pickled, pixilated, canned, cockeyed, blotto, blind drunk, roaring drunk, dead drunk, punch-drunk, ripped, stewed, tight, merry, the worse for wear, far gone, pie-eyed, in one's cups, three sheets to the wind, bladdered, lashed, crapulous. And that was just what he found in the Thesauaus before the room went spinning into darkness. Etymology: communication: the imparting or exchanging of information or news + drunk: intoxicated to excess Created by: wayoffcenter.

Geerbloggle: /gear-blog-ul/ Bella cursed inwardly when she read back the geerbloggle she posted at 2.00am and looked at the photographs from her night out. Just which one of these ugly mugs had she described as a "golden Adonis" on her blog? They were all hideous! 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 Created by: petaj.


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

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

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