Tuneitus: /tune-i-tus/ After chaperoning her daughter’s girl scout troop to a very loud Myley Cyrus concert Marylin found that she had developed a serious case of tuneitus. She doesn’t know if she got it at the concert or from the girls singing the same song over and over in the bus, but now she couldn’t get rid of it. After looking up her symptoms on Web MD she found to her horror that the only cure for tuneitus is to think of an equally droll song or else to try to pass the songworm to someone else by singing it outloud. It was cruel, she knew, but she had to get rid of it or she would go mad. “Harry,” she called, “listen to this song the girls sang.” Etymology: tinnitus: a constant buzzing, ringing or whistling sound in one or both ears caused by an external trigger such as an ear infection or head injury + tune: the melody of a song that is simple and easy to remember Created by: mrskellyscl.

The Mr. and I pass songworms back and forth all the time. It’s a great, although nasty passive-aggressive way to get even.

I gave my wife the hamster dance song to suffer with a few years ago with several renewals. She retaliated with: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMTeytJeSp8

that’s harsh (but funny)
Brainrefrainagain: /brayn refrayn agayn/ Her name was Jane and she could not explain why it happened again. It was a pain that was hard to contain. When she heard a strain which should entertain, she instead got a brainrefrainagain. Over and over it would play again, even though she tried to abstain, but in her brain this tune would remain. She tried in vain to remain sane, but her attempts to constrain were a very big drain and soon it nearly drove her insane…”I’m leaving on a Jet Plane…” Oops, I did it again! Etymology: Brain ( that part of the central nervous system that includes all the higher nervous centers; enclosed within the skull; continuous with the spinal cord; mental ability) & Refrain (the part of a song where a soloist is joined by a group of singers) & Again (over and over;repeatedly) Created by: Nosila.
Repetuneattrition: /repa-tuna-trition/ Barb is suffering from repetuneattrition, and probably won’t rejoin us until she’s been subjected to some other form of media or food. Etymology: repeat + tune + attrition Created by: chaiandallthatjazz.
Musicrapetitive: /MUSE-ick-CRAP-pet-a- tiff/ Bald-headed John drove around the block too many times, with his ugly euro-pod Toyota blaring annoying subsonic vibrations which were intelligible only to him. He got a gold tooth and called everyone “Dawg” but was ulimately shunned by his peers. As he lay in bed with no hopes of consummating his puerile desires, many stanzas of bogus “samples” and heathen drumbeats drilled into his head like a tasteless, regrettable tattoo.
