Donkingcoherence

Top verboticism of the day created by karenanne

DEFINITION: v., To speak in an inspirational but perhaps incomprehensible manner by stringing together a series of grunts and clichés. n., An inarticulate TV or radio, post-game interview, typically given by a panting, toothless, sweating, verbally-challenged, and hugely overpaid, athletic superstar.

Pronunciation: don king co HEER ens

Sentence: The coach's donKingcoherence was legendary. Some of the things he said were so incomprehensible that they were quoted on "humorous sayings" websites. For example, "If we're gonna win, we gotta get more points, 'cause usually, when the other team wins, it's 'cause they got more points, and usually there is only one winner, so next time, we definitely gotta prob'ly try to get more points."

Etymology: Don King (flamboyant boxing promoter and motivational speaker, often noted for his unintentionally funny sayings) + incoherence

Classy. The (not so) subtle innuendo adds another level to the pun and hints insightfully at the obsequious relationship between media and sport - emdeejay, 2008-11-27: 04:42:00
