If this thread takes off, I'll be back later with a poll to choose the best of the invented words. I'll get things rolling with...



gut mice

(n.) The feeling one might have in one's stomach the morning/day after a night of heavy drinking, esp. when vomiting is involved. "I've got a bad case of gut mice today, I was out with the boys and didn't get home until 5 AM".

Also, sucking for gut mice

(phrasal verb) The act of drinking heavily, esp. when resulting in vomitous hangovers. "No, I don't think I'm going to be able to meet you for lunch, I was out sucking for gut mice last night..."


(----- Actually, there is a story which explains the origins of "gut mice", but I'm not allowed to go into it... -----)

Strapadictomy (noun) :the procedure commonly undertaken when a woman finally discovers what men have known all along. It's better to '**beep**' than to be '*fucked*'. The process is a surgery more of the spirit than of the flesh.
