Life: English, humor
Comments Off on Specificity
I’ve always loved English’s hyper-specific words like defenstrate (to throw something out of a window) and borborygm (a rumbling noise caused by shifting air in the bowels). Something about them is deeply and indelibly funny.
English needs a verb meaning “to forget to attach a file to a mail”, especially to be used as an exclamation expressing surprise, dismay, the right level of apology, and the assurance that this was a one-time happenstance. (Not that I’d ever need to use it, of course.)
Anyone got a good suggestion? (I’ll take other humorously specific words, too, they’re always good.)
