Miscelloony

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /MIS-uh-loo-nee/

Sentence: Sporting two regular cell phones, a Blackberry, a PDA and an iPhone, Tammy carried more miscellaneous gizmos than Inspector Gadget, but when they all started beeping and ringing at once, while she was driving, trying to program her GPS navigator and tune her satellite radio at the same time, she turned into a complete miscelloony, ran over two curbs, and nearly had a nervous breakdown.

Etymology: Miscellany - a miscellaneous collection of items (from Latin, miscellānea) [also, mis- prefix meaning "incorrectly" & cell as in "cell phone"] + Loony - foolish or crazy (slang for lunatic; insanity influenced by the lunar cycle; from Latin, luna "moon")

Churf

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: churf

Sentence: Switcheroo Sam was doing a net surf on his lap top, with his Ipod in his left ear, and his cell phone to his right ear, text messaging on the cell phone he borrowed from his sister, with one eye on his tv, while he used his toe to switch channels on his CB radio, as his police scanner hummed in the background. He was a grand master of the churf!

Etymology: CH for Channeling, u for you, and urf for surf = CHURF ... meaning CHANNELING YOUrself while YOU SURF among your electronic devices. Does churfing make a person a churf serf (slave to their electronic devices), too?

Transmissionimpossible

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: trans mishun im poss abbel

Sentence: Tilly Fone was a transmissionimpossible. She/he was also a transvestite transcendentalist. When Tilly was transmissionimpossibling the many messages from his/her transient existence in his/her translucent TransAm transportation, his/her concentration became transparent. As a result, what transpired was a transfer of car insurance information, which was a result of a transonic traffic transaction. The other driver was a transplanted, transnational transvestite, who transmitted his/her transitory interest in Tilly. They translated this interest into true love and took a transoceanic cruise and then a transcontinental train to Transylvania, where they transmogrified themselves into transfigured Transmutants, who treated themselves to nightly transfusions from the local transfixed trolls. This is a transcript of this true story of what transpired from Tilly's text messages.
