Pronunciation: Scrap you later

Sentence: Luke was one of those people who would actually create work for himself procrastinating over household chores. Finding a condiment vessel in his pantry that had any more than a scrap of contents was nigh on impossible. When Sally went looking for Vegemite and found not one but seven almost empty jars she exclaimed "Luke! When *will* you scrap all this detritus?" To which Luke replied "Oh, I'll do it later". And thus his nickname was born.

Etymology: The mindset of the scrapulator: eh, I'll scrap you later
