Pronunciation: ku-stom-a-fa-ser

Sentence: The customeffacer ridiculed the client for being to cheap to buy a brand-name power tool with a 5-year warranty.

Etymology: from "customer" as well as "custom" since the customeffacer must create custom insults for individual situations. Also from the word efface, which obliterates all the joy the customer believed to have found in the "bargain."

Pronunciation: hate rah deee

Sentence: I went to an upscale mall to buy a desk and chair from Pottery Barn. So I went up to a guy standing at a counter right below the chair I wanted and asked him if he could help me. He looked up over the magazine he was reading and in a snotty tone told me I could place a special order at any register. He was such a hatere'd and so surly from me asking him for help. I looked back at him a bit aghast and said "Ewww. You are in your forties and work in the mall. Don't care that it's Short Hills Mall, you still work in the mall." He was the perfect example of a hatere'd.

Etymology: maitre'd + hate. Actual spelling should be hatere'd - but rules of game wouldn't allow it - so i changed it a bit for the header.

That gentleman bears a striking resemblance to Bruce McCulloch.

I hope Mr. McCulloch isn't insulted... ~ James

I've often noticed that the verbotoons have striking similarities to famous people. I wonder if the artist uses reference photos...

As Kurt Vonnegut said of his novels, this artwork is fiction and "All persons living or dead are purely coincidental, and should not be construed." Except of course, for the drawing of Vonnegut himself, which is meant to be who it appears to be. ~ James

Everybody's coincidental? All 12 billion of us? I like the sound of that. And I definitely agree that you shouldn't construe anybody. It's just not nice, even if they are already dead.

Yes, it's just a bunch of moments which may, or may not be connected... ~ James

CONGRATS! INSULTANT is simple yet effective. I wish i could learn not to use a large word when a diminutive one will do. Economy is everything.
