A friend found a relevant definition in an online slang dictionary with regard to last week's addendum. It included:
optical interrupt: A sight that will get your attention no matter what you are doing.
Example: I was just minding my own business, sitting at the bar drinking a draft, and then this optical interrupt walked in.
There are some very funny words at this site and some not-so-funny ones. Here are a few I liked from the "O" page
. Twenty-five letters left to go ...
overcommasize: To use too many commas, in a section of speech, or writing.
Example: Elaine tends to frequently overcommasize, her papers.
outdacious: Outrageous, impertinent.
Example: What an outdacious suggestion.
onomania: An obsessive tendency to attach names to inanimate objects. Further symptoms include referring to objects using gender-specific pronouns. Origin is Greek's onoma for name.
Example: Have you seen my sock Billy? He's been missing for days now; I'm getting worried.
OMCD: (n) acronym for 'Old Married Couple Disorder', wherein two people have a strange, innate sense of each other-finish the other's sentences, know what the other one is thinking-much like an old married couple.
Example: Those two have only been going out for a week, but look at 'em-they seem like they've been together forever. They've got a serious case of OMCD.
obflusticate: vt/ To confuse, through the use of vague, convoluted language, to the point at which the listener either starts grinding his/her teeth, or flexing the jaw up & down in a flustered state.
From the combination of the words obfuscate, fluster & masticate.
Example: Mr. Lay's testimony obflusticated quite a few people.
obfuscatologist: Someone who makes things unclear or difficult to follow. (To obfuscate is to make obscure or unclear, especially if done in a circuitous or complicated manner.)
Example: Jim's a professional obfuscatologist; following his trail of excuses is unbelievably difficult.
obfuzzcate: The inability to read faxes due to poor print quality.
Example: Resend that fax since it was too obfuzzcated to understand.
