El Reg seeks top net neologism


Doing the rounds

There was an email doing the rounds a good while ago where you added or removed one letter from a word to get a totally new meaning:

My two favourites were:

Osteopornosis - def'n: a degenerative disease


Sarchasm - def'n: the gulf in wit between the person cracking a joke and the wuckfit who doesn't understand it.

Although not webisms I also like Spoonerising sayings to avoid obvious profanity while getting the meaning across, like:

wuckfit, the bogs dollocks, and fupid stucker..

Swearing IS Big and it IS Clever.

@Horses for courses

As you said, advice for non-amputating injuries is to NOT apply a tourniquet for the reasons you state.

However in a combat situation when a femoral artery gets ruptured you're faced with two choices

1) Apply tourniquet to stop or slow the bleeding and run the risk of losing the limb

2) Bleed out VERY quickly and DIE.

Not much of a choice really?


I'll let the IT angle go cos it's giving us Information about new battlefield Technology

"Repelled" from CH2 Huey?

Surely any self-respecting pilot would have been repelled by him before he got anywhere near the aircraft?

Guess the only thing Illuminati'd (geddit?) by this story is the intelligence of you average common or garden Knoxvillian villain (should that be a Knoxvillain?)

Absolutley no IT angle, but as the arresting officer will attest - it's fun to laugh at loons.

The NZ version on Munter and the UK version are probably very closely related.

After all you would need to be "Munted" (NZ version) to pull a "Munter"* (UK version)
