Starting the weekend with a laugh...

A few (of my favorite) engineers at work have a word making game that they use each day to create the word(s) of the day. It's quite simple - two stacks of (mostly inappropriate) words on a coil that you randomly select and then combine to make one word. 

At first the rule was that you had to use the newly created word three times during the day. Then, we discovered just how rude, offensive, and hilarious the words were and quickly abandoned the notion of saying them out loud. 

On a side note: My favorite word created to date - cooch waffle!

Anyways, I received an email the other day with words created for a contest and a few were so hilarious - or fit perfectly with my life - that I really had to share. If this isn't your cup of tea, I apologize and promise to return to my regular post topics after the weekend!

Assmosis: the process by which people seem to absorb success and advancement by sucking up to the boss rather than working hard.

Salmon Day: the experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to get screwed and die.

Ragequit (verb) : to become angry and quit a game or other activity
Boomerlang: words popularized in the ’60s and ’70s by Boomers that never seem to go away but continue to be used (groovy, out of sight, far out...)

Blamestorming: sitting around in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a project failed, and who was responsible.

Seagull Manager: a manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on everything, and then leaves.
Dilberted: to be exploited and oppressed by your boss. Derived from the experiences of Dilbert, the geek-in-hell comic strip character. "I've been Dilberted again. The old man revised the specs for the fourth time this week."
Apocalypstic: the little smudge I came home with on my collar that makes my wife act like it's the end of the world.

Polarvoid: the state of having no baby pictures, a condition that usually befalls the second-born child.
Giraffiti: vandalism spray-painted very, very high.

terminal coolness.
Karmageddon: end of the world due to a build up of bad-vibes.

Glibido: all talk and no action.

Dopeler effect: the tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.
Bozone (n.): the substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.
