to disconcert or confuse someone on account of manipulations of President Obama's name
Discombobamulation: the act of promulgating manipulations of President Obama's name
Discombobamulated: to suffer emotional distress over manipulations of President Obama's name
Courtesy of yours truly.
One of my favorite words! We use it all of the time. Must be a ‘southern thang’. ‘Cept we say it like, “Discombobalate.” ;-)
BTW, on pronunciation: I think the first “b’ should be nearly silent if not effectively so.
Also, now that I think about it, Discombobamulation while it may be used of generic manipulation of the President’s name as in the case of this thread should probably specifically refer to such efforts in the service of trying to discombobamulate people.
Thus coining the term is not technically a form of discombobamulation. [/lawyering]
Here’s a new term recently inspired by slightly different circumstances:
dis - com - o-bot - u - late
Frustration inspired by trying to debate an O-bot.
For example: I’m discombobotulated and fed up with trying to debate fundamental Laws with this guy!!!
EDIT: sorry that should be “discombobotulate” and not “dismonbobotulate”.
