Sentence: Samuel, or "Shixpack Shammy" as he was known to his colleagues was a troubled young lad. His entire life the world and people in particular seemed daft to him. Every day he woke to a prison of mediocrity and banality, where 'unreasonable' people refused to bend to suit his narcissistic views. Unable to stand the incessant anxiety, Sam escaped each evening to the comforts of drunken stupor; a slurrealistic realm where he was king. One evening after a particularly unproductive day of pointless meetings Sam snapped. He downed a case of his favourite lager, opened his laptop, and began to compose. He cajoled his colleagues, belittled his boss, and flummoxed his friends. Finally, exhausted and relieved, he collapsed upon his keyboard and drooled himself to sleep. The next day as he commuted, Sam opened his curiously sticky laptop and had a gut wrenching slurrealisation.

Etymology: "Slur": (a) A nasty statement directed at someone you dislike. (b) The chaotic cadence inherent in the speech of inebriated humans. "Realisation": The curious sensation felt when something new occurs to you. "Surreal": That's like, totally surreal man
