Sentence: Eee by gum, ar Donny's a dolt. Thar ee sits sticking bandaids on his hairy knees. Ee knows it's gonna sting like blazes when he pulls em off, but he keeps on doin it. ee must ave arrbeeaye.

Etymology: RSI (repetitive strain injury) + B is for brain


petaj forgot to weave in "repetitive brain injury", but I'm sure verbotomists are too clever to have arrbeeaye and would have figured it out anyway. - petaj, 2007-06-07: 03:32:00

I somehow assumed the etymology would include something about overeating Arby's and paying for it later. God knows it's impossible not to. - jadenguy, 2007-06-07: 09:11:00

This evokes images of Long John Silver - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-07: 13:37:00

petaj Never heard of Arby's. Sounds like some undesirable franchise we don't need in Australia. - petaj, 2007-06-07: 22:28:00

Pronunciation: /ˈdoʊˌpit/

Sentence: I knew that I was inclined to miss the freeway exit to our new house, so I made a big point of staying focused so that I wouldn't dohpeat this time. Unfortunately, my resolve led me into a false sense of security, and it wasn't until I turned on the street where we used to live that I realized it had happened again.

Etymology: From doh + repeat


I know a dope Pete! - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-07: 12:25:00

I should've known you'd already come up with a better "Doh" based word! - Osomatic, 2007-06-07: 13:37:00

Sentence: Like Alice in Blunderland, Bob didn't realize he was about to redodebooboo. I watched in amazment as he once again set the office toaster oven to Burnt Beyond Recognition and walk away. Eh, at least we'd get a few minutes out of the office when the fire alarms went off.

Etymology: redo the boo-boo


as in to continually try to sing covers of Michael mcDonald songs "I keep forgetting, I can't sing this high"? - galwaywegian, 2007-06-07: 04:54:00

You people are merciless!! (sha-doo-bee-doo-wah...) - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-07: 09:37:00

maybe the doobie redoobie explains the forgetfulness - perhaps the smoke wasn't from the office toaster - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-07: 11:36:00

The smell would have been much better. Whatever he was cooking stunk like hell. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-07: 11:41:00

whenever someone burns toast in our office everyone yells "group stroke" - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-07: 11:55:00

If you yelled that in my office, you'd likely be molested! - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-07: 12:03:00

Pronunciation: rēdoōfəs

Sentence: Eric is a redoofus. He doesn*t mean to make the same mistakes over and over. It*s just that he is a very habitual person. Once he has goofed twice, he has developed a reflex. Even when he has time to ponder a decision, he overthinks it and usually corrects the correction back to the error.

Etymology: redo (do something again or differently) + doofus (a stupid person)
