Pronunciation: git-rap-ping

Sentence: The supermarket bosses were laughing up their sleeves. Not only were their gullible consumers buying thousands of unnecessary bog-offs, they'd get home and be unable to successfully open the gitwrapping. Subsequent frustration would inevitably lead to broken DVDs and the consumer would have to go back next day and buy a replacement. Kerching!

Etymology: git (offensive slang for a stupid or annoying person) + wrapping (protective covering on merchandise) + giftwrapping (pretty paper used to cover presents)
