Lambastard

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: LAM bas terd

Sentence: John is a lambastard who tends to angrily dismiss or criticize everything he hears. If he can pick apart any detail and prove you wrong, he will. He doesn't even seem to really be enjoying himself - he just seems pissed off all the time. He still hasn't figured out that being friendly is sometimes more important than being right.

Etymology: lambaste (to criticize severely, berate harshly) + bastard. Yes, OK, I know that the first word is correctly pronounced "lam' bast," with a short "a," but I just couldn't resist. Anyway, the alternative was "contradickt," and I already used "dick" this week.

Autofault

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: aw - toe - fawlt

Sentence: Jim was an autofault specialist. No matter what anyone said, he would contradict or correct the statement. Moreover, he had something negative to say about everyone. I know he would really criticize this sentence since it is not clever and contains no interesting story. He is already critizing my lack of originality in illustrating my Verbotomy word today. I will wait for his comments below and just try to ignore them.

Etymology: Automatic (to operate independently of thought control (involuntary), Acting or done as if by machine; mechanical) + Fault (the quality of being inadequate or falling short of perfection)

COMMENTS:

I think I know Jim. - Mustang, 2009-01-05: 19:27:00
