crunchatize - to assign to a subordinate the job of arguing with a customer or vendor or colleague, and then when all the points are made that you wanted made, or when the subordinate wins the argument but is heavily tarred with the onus of having made the hard arguments, coming in to the discussion to take the credit for the outcome, and sometimes to criticize the subordinate for doing the very job she was assigned to do in order for you to look like the reasonable person solving the problem.

He told me to go to the mat with the guy in accounting, and then cut me off at the knees after I proved that we were right, and he took all the credit -- I got crunchatized.

Since 12"razormix has elected not to receive PMs from anyone, Brynn ought to get ready to take over and post a new word. If anyone knows 12"razormix's email address, you might send a note. In fact, for all those who have elected to play the DG who have also elected not to receive PMs or who can't receive PMs because the board won't let them, send me your email address backchannel to marcus at designerglass dot com and I'll make sure you get notified if you win.

12"razormix 03-05-2008 07:01 PM

oh shut up bales, the new word is


speustic



thank you mr. fox :)

Marcus Bales 03-05-2008 07:02 PM

speustic - unable to read the directions to allow PMs on a bulletin board.

12"razormix 03-05-2008 07:04 PM

if you want to get on my arse about judging, you might as well start doing this now since i'm going to take my time! :)

YsaPur EsChomuw 03-05-2008 09:38 PM

speustic n. someone who tries to beguile unsuspecting people of their credit card number, social security number, e-mail address, naked pictures posed under palm trees et cetera for evil purposes like spamming their mailboxes with a call to hasty action.

speustic - the vomit reflex caused by touching the uvula or back of the throat

If you hear Milton gagging when he brushes his teeth, don't worry. He doesn't think he's getting his tongue clean unless he's hitting his speustic nerve.

Stephi_B 03-07-2008 10:16 AM

speustic adj

aware of unawareness

n speudicity
v to speu of s.th. (rarely used)


There was this sudden speustic experience that caused me to change my perspective on the matter in question.
