Wrecktify

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: rektəfī

Sentence: Wesley can wrecktify almost any situation. He is all-too-ready to jump in where he should never tread. Fix your computer? Sure! The fact that he can't figure out how to reply to an e-mail should be a clue but his eager willingness often fools his victims. Got something that's working poorly? Better start saving for a new one.

Etymology: Wreck (something, esp. a vehicle or building, that has been badly damaged or destroyed) + rectify (put something right; correct)
