Pronunciation: /fungk-on-shuss/

Sentence: Carlos thought of himself as the office 'Romeo,' stopping to try to speak to all the young ladies who worked there. Unfortunately, he was completely funkonscious — totally unaware of his strong body odor, not to mention his bad breath. None of his conversations lasted very long, but he was blissfully ignorant of why.

Etymology: Funk - a strong smell; stench (from dial. French, funkière "smoke") + Unconscious - without awareness, sensation, or cognition (from Latin, un- "not" & conscius "knowing, aware")
