Hyakujo's Fox 09-22-2009 07:06 PM

thank you Mr Bales!

the new word is... obrumpent

Marcus Bales 09-23-2009 12:30 AM

obrumpent - a shaggy dog story; a long story told to show off a raconteur's ability to hold an audience and then produce such a lame finish that the point of the endeavor becomes obviously to hold the audience's attention with the details and progress of the story, and not with any sort of satisfying ending.

After twenty interminable minutes of tedious tales of entanglements with Western medicine, Dddrum's protagonist in the story finally achieved an interview with some wise man on a mountain in Tibet, and, as we each began eyeing our empty glasses and the distance to the bar, the rhythm of his raconteurship increased slightly and led us to imagine he had come, at last, to the big finish. Vain hope. He continued, " ...and as the screw finished unturning out of his navel, just as the sun came up over the high serrations of the Himalayas, illuminating the entire scene in brilliant white light exploding out of the pink and orange east, his ass fell off." Dddrum hooted with laughter at his own joke amid the dead air of our collective silence, until Angry Kid Hoyt finally shot him for perpetrating such an obrumpent on our party.

trisherina 09-23-2009 01:40 AM

obrumpent: The type of denial experienced by the inept encountering their own ineptitude.

Upon recognizing that she had forgotten to confirm the appointment, Salli was obrumpent.

xfox 09-26-2009 11:53 PM

obrumpent n. a promise to oneself to reduce hip size.

Having sworn obrumpence, Anne passed up the cheese puffs and had some carrots in hopes of getting to her goal of 37 1/2".
